Feb. 24, 2013
SPARTANBURG, S.C. - The George Washington baseball team established a 3-0 lead over USC Upstate but was unable to maintain the advantage as the Colonials lost, 9-3, in the series finale on Sunday afternoon at Harley Park.
GW (0-4) got off to a quick start, pushing three runs across the plate in the top of the second inning thanks to RBIs from junior Brookes Townsend, senior Matt Murakami and freshman Tyler Fairbanks. The Colonials used a combination of two hits and an error to establish the early lead.
Freshman Danny O'Donnell, in his first collegiate start, allowed just one hit through the first three innings, but an error in the field during the third inning allowed USC Upstate (5-1) to cut the deficit to 3-1.
Following a 1-2-3 top of the fourth inning, Upstate exploded for five runs on six hits in the fourth to take a 6-3 lead. O'Donnell was chased after facing three batters in the fourth inning. He surrendered four runs (three earned) and four hits in three innings with one walk and one strikeout.
The Spartans added a run in the fifth and three in the seventh to push the score to 9-3, a lead they maintained thanks to strong pitching out of the bullpen. Upstate did not yield a hit after the fifth inning.
Fairbanks finished with two hits in his second collegiate start for GW.
The Colonials return to action on Tuesday afternoon when they visit No. 25 Virginia. First pitch from Davenport Field is scheduled for 3 p.m.
