Baseball Drops Two Of Three To UTSA Losing 5-3 Again To Finish Series
Avi Rasowsky Pitched Four Scoreless Innings And Geoff Milsom Double For The Second-Straight Day
Feb. 29, 2004
SAN ANTONIO, TX - The Colonials lost again to UTSA, 5-3, this time in Sunday's final game between the two teams. GW fell to a 4-0 deficit after the first inning and could never battle out of the hole. Junior Avi Rasowsky kept the Colonials in the game by pitching four scoreless innings followed by two scoreless frames from Nate CasaGrande. While the roadrunners ran out of steam after the second inning, the Colonials came up just short despite scoring two in the ninth by leaving two runners on base to end the game. Geoff Milsom enjoyed his second-straight game with a double to lead GW with two hits.
The Roadrunners used a four-run first and a career-high 11 strikeouts from senior Klae Boehme to win the deciding game of the weekend series over George Washington by a score of 5-3 at Wolff Stadium Sunday afternoon.
Ryan Crew and Michael McKennon opened the game with a single and double, respectively, followed by Chris Lewis' single to drive in Crew. After an Aric Green walk, designated hitter Zach Etheredge connected for a two-run double, plating McKennon and Lewis. Brandon Saunders then delivered a sacrifice fly to score Green for a 4-0 Roadrunners' advantage.
Crew added to the lead in the second with a solo homer, his second on the season, to make it 5-0. The Colonials would manage one run in fifth with Brad Rosenbalt making it to second on a throwing error by the UTSA catcher and later scoring on a single by Geoff Milsom.
UTSA winning pitcher Boehme continued to hold GW scoreless through the seventh, making way for Chad Kuck and Blake Brannon in the eighth to finish the job. The Colonials posed a threat against Brannon in their final at bat pushing two runs across with Anthony Smith scoring on a Roadrunner miscue and pinch runner Mickey Shupin, who was in for Bill Simpson, coming home on Matt Owens' sacrifice fly. Brannon settled to preserve the 5-3 win for the Runners with a strikeout of Anthony Raglani.
The Colonials (2-6) return home with a rematch against Old Dominion on Tuesday at 2:30 and then play at James Madison at 2:30 on Wednesday. GW will enjoy an extended home stretch in March when the club plays 19 of its 21 games at Barcroft Park in Arlington, VA.
