Baseball Loses to UNLV, 6-3
Colonial Pitching and Defense Slows UNLV, But Not Soon Enough
March 2, 2002
Lancaster, C.A. - George Washington managed to slow UNLV down after their quick start with the combination of Colonial pitching and defense only allowing seven hits and two runs from the fourth inning on. UNLV had scored four runs on five hits in the first three innings forcing GW to make some adjustments. Despite some tough Rebel defense, GW was able to come away with a couple of doubles and a triple, as well as, a few RBIs when the team lost to UNLV, 6-3.
GW's biggest run producing innings came in the third and fifth. With Tony Dokoupil and Travis Crowder on first and second, Mike Bassett doubled, bringing Crowder home and notching an RBI. Dokoupil and Bassett were left on base after a foul out by Chris Barry to first.
The Colonials were anxious to get up to bat again though. Chris Worth struck-out two in a row, sending Robert VanKirk and Jason Reuss back to the dugout. Derek Amundsen managed to reach second, but was stopped there when Ryan Ruiz grounded out to second baseman Nick Iovacchini. At bat in the forth, the Colonials were not able to accomplish all they had hoped. Matt Krimmel singled, but did not manage to get much farther.
GW had a harder time managing the Rebels in the fifth than in the forth. They allowed one run on three hits, finally stopping UNLV with two left on base. The Colonials took advantage of tired left-handed Rebel pitcher Giovanni Pupo quickly. After a single by Jake Wald, Crowder tripled, bringing Wald home. Before being taken off the mound, Pupo walked Iovacchini. Up against left-handed pitcher Ben Scheinbaum, Dokoupil hit a sacrifice fly to right field, bringing Crowder home and notching an RBI. Basset then flied out to left field, Iovacchini stole second and Barry walked. Jeff Fertitta loaded the bases with a single, but Iovacchini was out at home after a long throw from center field to the catcher. The Colonials ended the inning scoring two runs on three hits.
The Colonials did not manage another scoring inning. The game with Crowder, Krimmel and Wald each had multiple hits for the Colonials. Crowder went 2-for-5 with an RBI and two runs, while Krimmel was 2-3, and Wald was 2-4 with one run. Chris Worth pitched for 7.0 inning allowing only 11 hits and 4 earned runs, while Avi Rasowsky pitched 2.0 innings, one hit, no runs.
GW will continue there play in the Cal State Northridge Tournament on Saturday evening when they play Cal State Northridge at 6:10 p.m. PT.
