Feb. 27, 2005
MIAMI, FL - The number six-ranked University of Miami (10-3) pounded out 16 runs on 19 hits to hammer George Washington University (5-4) 16-3 Sunday afternoon in the final game of the three-game series at Mark Light Field.
The Hurricanes' 3-4-5 hitters went a combined 12-for-13 with two home runs, seven doubles and 12 RBIs in the contest.
UM scored early and often, posting three runs in the first inning, two in the third and three in the fourth to open an 8-0 lead.
GW was able to come as close as 8-3 in the fifth inning when left fielder Josh Goldberg (Albany, NY / Albany Academy) (2) launched a towering home run off the scoreboard in centerfield.
Goldberg went 4-for-4 with three RBIs in the contest.
Hurricanes' RHP Chris Perez (3-1) got the start and struck out eight over five innings to earn the win.
LHP Dan Sullivan (Stony Point, NY / North Rockland) (1-2) struggled in his start for the Colonials, allowing five runs in 2.1 innings as he took the loss.
First baseman Danny Valencia had a monster game for UM, going 4-for-4 with a homer, two doubles and five RBIs.
Four different Hurricane batters homered in the affair including second baseman Walter Diaz and catcher Alex Garabedian, which were collegiate firsts for each.
GW plays its home opener Saturday, March 5, when they host Le Moyne for a doubleheader at Barcroft Park in Arlington, VA. The first pitch is set for 12:00 pm.
The Colonials' original home opener was scheduled for Tuesday, March 1, against Coppin State but that game, along with Wednesday's scheduled contest against Delaware, has been postponed.
