Feb. 27, 2013
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. - The George Washington baseball team held No. 19 Virginia scoreless over the first three innings, but the Cavaliers erupted for 11 runs over the final six frames to defeat the Colonials, 11-0, on Wednesday afternoon at Davenport Field.
GW (0-6) will search for its first win of the Gregg Ritchie era when it opens a three-game series with Quinnipiac on Friday afternoon at Barcroft Park.
Freshman Max Kaplow got the start for the Colonials and allowed just one hit through the first three innings. The Colonials had a chance to establish early run support for Kaplow, but could not convert with runners on first and third and one out in the second.
Virginia (8-0) erupted for four runs on four hits, including a leadoff home run, in the fourth inning to chase Kaplow from the game.
Juniors Aaron Weisberg and Craig Lejeune combined to allow just one unearned run and no hits in 2.2 innings of relief, but Virginia posted seven runs across the final three innings to clinch the 11-0 victory.
GW will open its series against Quinnipiac on Friday afternoon at Barcroft Park ahead of Saturday's Grand Opening Celebration. For more information on Saturday's events click here.
