GW Baseball Defeats MD-Eastern Shore
Colonials pick up their first win of the 2007 season
Feb. 28, 2007
PRINCESS ANNE, MD - Junior Gavin Swanson knocked in two runs and freshman pitcher Scott Swinson recorded his first collegiate win as George Washington (1-6) snapped a six-game losing streak and downed the University of Maryland Eastern Shore (1-7) Wednesday afternoon at Hawks Stadium by a final score of 6-5. With the win, GW avoided a 0-7 record and what would have been the worst start to a season in program history.
Swinson (1-1), making his first career start, struck out five Hawks and allowed just five hits in 5 1/3 innings of work. Fellow freshman Ryan Lapointe (S, 1) entered in the ninth inning and struck out the first three batters he faced to preserve the 6-5 GW win. It was LaPointe's first collegiate save.
Dustin Longchamps (1-2) started for UMES. The senior allowed just one hit and notched five strikeouts but left the game after the fifth inning. With the Hawks' starter out, the Colonials took advantage, scoring four runs on six hits in the top of the sixth inning.
Swanson was one of three Colonials to record two hits in the game, along with seniors Mickey Shupin and Michael Parker. Parker, the shortstop, now has a hit in all seven games this season. He also leads the team with seven doubles and a .645 slugging percentage.
George Washington continues it play on the road this weekend when they travel to the University of Florida (6-6) for a three-game series with the Gators. Friday's game is at 6:00 p.m. Both Saturday's and Sunday's games are set for a start time of 2:00 p.m. GW will make its 2007 home debut Mar. 7 when they play host to George Mason University at 2:30 p.m. at Barcroft Field.
