Late Rally Sinks Colonials, Fall To Tulane 4-3
Feb. 27, 2011
NEW ORLEANS, LA- The George Washington baseball team held a 3-1 lead in the eighth inning but were unable to hold on to the advantage as they fell to Tulane on Sunday afternoon at Turchin Stadium.
Tulane responded in the bottom half of the frame as Jeremy Schaffer would tie the game with a sacrifice fly. The RBI by Schaffer would be the only blemish on Lucas' afternoon, as he gave up just one run in five and one-third innings of work while striking out five batters.
The Colonials would retake the lead in the top of the fifth inning on freshman Owen Beightol's two-run double. Ollie Mittag was 3-for-4 for GW while McCarthy finished the day 2-for-4 with two runs scored.
GW would take the 3-1 lead into the eighth inning but the bullpen was unable to secure the victory. A total of four Tulane players were hit by a pitch and the Green Wave would score three runs to take a 4-3 lead into the ninth inning.
The Colonials will open their 2011 home schedule on Wednesday afternoon against district rival Georgetown at 2:30pm at Barcroft Park in Arlington, VA. GW was 1-3 against the Hoyas last season but lead the all-time series 89-33-1.
