Top-Ranked Virginia Edges Colonials 5-2
Colonials will travel to Irvington, VA to host Coppin State this weekend
Feb. 24, 2010
WASHINGTON, DC - Beginning a season with four games against competition from the previous College World Series is not a path that most collegiate baseball teams prefer to take. The Colonials though continued their season in Charlottesville Wednesday against top-ranked Virginia and dropped a 5-2 decision, their fourth loss by three runs or less to start the 2010 season.
Senior Tom Zebroski recorded three hits in the contest and scored the first George Washington run in the fourth inning. Redshirt senior Chris Luick also continued his hot start to the season, reaching base three times including two walks to push his team lead to six on the season. Freshman Tyler McCarthy also pounded out two hits, including an RBI double in the fourth.
Freshman Jeff Griffiths made his first career start on the day and went three innings, allowing two earned runs on three hits. The game was pitched entirely by freshman as Ryan Heinz threw two innings allowing three earned runs and Brian Derner pitched three shutout innings.
The Cavaliers sent Will Roberts to the mound and he responded by throwing 5 2/3 innings and allowed two runs to pick up his first win of the season. Junior Kevin Arico also recorded the final four outs for his first save of the season.
The Colonials will now host Coppin State in an unusual home series as they will travel to Irvington, VA to take on the Eagles. Due to the inclement weather in the Washington, DC area, Barcroft Field is not fit for action currently. The start times will remain the same as Friday's contest will begin at 2:00 p.m at Dream Field. There will also be a doubleheader on Saturday starting at 12:00 p.m.
