GW Athletics, Arlington County to Host Grand Opening of Barcroft Park on Saturday
March 1, 2013
ARLINGTON, Va. - The George Washington bullpen held Quinnipiac to just two hits over the final four innings, but the Bobcats plated six runs in the first five frames as the Colonials suffered an 8-3 setback on Friday afternoon at Barcroft Park.
Quinnipiac (1-0) scored one run in each of the first three innings, via two sacrifice flies and a RBI single, to build a 3-0 lead against Colonials' starter Aaron Weisberg.
GW (0-7) responded in the bottom of the fourth inning. Freshman Eric Kalman was hit by a pitch with one out and advanced to second on a passed ball. Following a strikeout, junior Brookes Townsend drove a single to left-centerfield to bring Kalman home and cut the deficit to two runs.
Quinnipiac responded with four runs over the next two innings to extend their lead to 7-1, chasing Weisberg in the process. Weisberg allowed five runs (three earned) in four innings with three strikeouts and two walks.
The Bobcats added a run in the eighth inning to make it 8-1 before the Colonials used a RBI double in the bottom of the eighth by junior Owen Beightol to cut the lead to 8-2. After a perfect ninth inning from senior Brian Derner, the Colonials pushed one more run across in the ninth on a RBI groundout, but were unable to complete the comeback.
Derek Lamacchia earned the win for Quinnipiac after allowing one unearned run on one hit in seven innings with two strikeouts and three walks.
Derner pitched a perfect 1.2 innings of relief out of the bullpen while freshman Bobby LeWarne surrendered three runs (two earned) in 3.1 innings.
Townsend finished 1-for-2 with two walks and one RBI.
On Saturday, the George Washington Department of Athletics & Recreation and Arlington County will host a Grand Opening Celebration of Barcroft Park prior to the 1:00 p.m. game against Quinnipiac.
