Baseball Struggles Against Cal State Northridge, 6-0
March 3, 2002
Lancaster, C.A. - George Washington could not manage to keep up with Cal State Northridge in their late game Saturday night that started at 9:10 ET. In a game with few opportunities and the first run scored in the fifth inning, Cal State Northridge slowed-down Colonial batting, lessening GW's chance at victory.
The teams seemed to flip flop their production while at bat. GW's best opportunities to score came in the second and third innings. Cal State then started to connect in the fifth inning, scoring one, and then continued their momentum picking up five more by the end of the eighth.
Colonial right-handed pitcher Jason Baker, started off the game striking out a Matador in each of the first four innings. He notched two more later in the game, bringing his total to 6 in 7.0 innings. Left-handed pitcher, Mike O'Connor, relieved Baker for the final inning, striking out three in all, but not before Cal State Northridge managed two runs.
GW biggest opportunities for run producing innings included a couple of singles and a double. Mike Bassett kicked off the second inning with a single. Chris Barry then also singled. With Barry on first and Bassett on second, Jeff Fertitta grounded out to second base, but helped Barry move to second and Bassett to third. Both were left on base at the end of the inning when Anthony Raglani grounded out to Matador pitcher Kameron Loe, who then struck out Jake Wald.
The Colonials regained their momentum in the third when Tony Brown doubled and then advanced to third on Loe's wild pitch. Brown was later out when Tony Dokoupil reached first on a fielder's choice, ending the hope for Brown to cross home plate.
The Colonials did not manage many more hits throughout the rest of the game. Brown was the only Colonials with multiple hits, by game's end having hit two for three at bats. Baker and O'Connor only allowed the Matadors a total of eight hits and six earned runs.
GW hopes to end their stay in Lancaster, CA on a high note when they play the Purdue Boilermakers in their final game of the Cal State Northridge Tournament on Sunday morning at 11:10 a.m. PT.
