March 3, 2012
DURHAM, N.C. - Sophomore Aaron Weisberg limited Duke to just two hits in five innings of work but the George Washington baseball team was unable to supply run support, falling to the Blue Devils, 4-1, on Saturday afternoon at Jack Coombs Field.
Weisberg was strong in his second start of the season, allowing just two hits and stranding eight men on base in five innings of work. He struck out one batter while inducing eight fly-ball outs and six groundouts. Following today's game he leads the Colonials pitching staff with a 1.29 ERA (minimum two appearances).
Following Weisberg's exit at the start of the sixth inning, Duke (7-5) pushed four runners across to take a 4-0 lead. The Colonials got one back in the top of the ninth inning when senior Ollie Mittag drove in sophomore Justin Albright with a RBI groundout. Albright had led off the inning with a double to right-center.
Senior Stephen Oswald collected three hits on the afternoon to lead the Colonial offense while juniors Derek Brown, J.T. Wauford and sophomore Craig Lejeune combined for 2.1 innings of scoreless relief.
The Colonials and Blue Devils will conclude their three-game series on Sunday afternoon at 1 p.m. Junior Tyler McCarthy will start for GW.
