GW Baseball Falls to Delaware State, 7-5
Four Players Record Multiple Hits
Feb. 27, 2014
ARLINGTON, Va. - Four players recorded multiple hits, led by freshman Bobby Campbell's three-hit, two-RBI performance, but the George Washington baseball team fell to Delaware State, 7-5, on Thursday afternoon at Barcroft Park.
Sophomore Bobby LeWarne was strong on the mound in his first start of the season, a no-decision in which he recorded eight strikeouts against just one walk while allowing three unearned runs in five innings of work.
GW (1-4) got on the scoreboard with three runs in the bottom of the first inning. Sophomore Xavier Parkmond hit a one-out single and scored when freshman Colin Gibbons-Fly roped a double down the right field line, giving the Colonials a 1-0 lead. Later in the inning, freshman Kevin Mahala drew a walk and a double-steal put runners on second and third. Bryant followed with a two-run single to right field to extend the lead to 3-0.
Delaware State (3-1) answered in the top of the second inning, scoring three unearned runs on a bases-clearing double by Cameron Cecil after a two-out error by the Colonials' defense.
GW regained the lead in the bottom of the fourth inning on a sequence that started when junior Ryan Xepoleas was hit by a pitch to lead off the inning. He advanced two bases on a failed pick-off attempt then scored when senior Owen Beightol lined a two-out base hit up the middle, putting GW ahead 4-3.
The Colonials extended the lead to 5-3 in the bottom of the sixth when Parkmond delivered an RBI single through the right side of the infield to score sophomore Matthieu Robert. Robert had led off the frame with a single, advanced to second on a sacrifice bunt and to third on a wild pitch.
The Hornets got one run back on a bases-loaded walk in the seventh inning and a solo home run by Cecil tied the score at 5-5 in the eighth inning. Delaware State then moved ahead with a pair of runs in the ninth, scoring on a fielding error and a passed ball to take a decisive 7-5 lead. Eric Sharff pitched a scoreless ninth, despite allowing three hits, to earn the save for DSU.
The Colonials open a three-game series with Lafayette on Saturday afternoon at Barcroft Park. The teams will play a doubleheader on Saturday beginning at 12:00 p.m., followed by a single game on Sunday at 12:00 p.m.
