GW Baseball Drops 4-2 Decision to Quinnipiac
Colonials Hold Bobcats to Just One Hit Over Final Five Innings
March 2, 2013
ARLINGTON, Va. - The George Washington baseball team held Quinnipiac to just one hit over the final five innings, but for the second day in a row the Bobcats built an early lead which they maintained the rest of the way as the Colonials fell, 4-2, on Saturday afternoon at Barcroft Park.
Junior Luke Staub fanned six batters in seven innings of work but was tagged with four earned runs in the losing effort.
Quinnipiac (2-0) used a RBI single and sacrifice fly in the first two innings to build a 2-0 lead before the Colonials responded in the bottom of the second inning.
GW (0-8) was able to load the bases via two hit batsmen and an error, allowing senior Derek Brown to drive in a run on a sacrifice fly, but Quinnipiac starter Spencer Kane was able to escape the jam with a 2-1 lead.
The Bobcats struck again for two runs in the top of the fourth to push the lead to 4-1, before their bats fell silent the rest of the game.
Staub settled down and partnered with junior Colin Milon to allow just one hit and two baserunners over the final five innings. Milon pitched a perfect eighth and ninth innings with two strikeouts.
The Colonials had opportunities to trim the deficit over the final five innings but only produced one run. They stranded two runners in the sixth and only scored one run after leading off the eighth with a double by junior Brookes Townsend. He was driven in on a sacrifice fly by Brown, his second of the day.
Spencer Kane earned the win for Quinnipiac after allowing one unearned run and five hits in six innings of work with four strikeouts. Gary Binkiewicz posted the save after yielding one run on one hit in three innings.
The Colonials and Bobcats will conclude their series on Sunday afternoon at Barcroft Park. First pitch is scheduled for 12:00 p.m. and the game will be streamed live on RaiseHigh.tv.
