Baseball Downs Towson, 8-5, in Seven Innings
Conden Becomes Program's Winningest Pitcher
March 7, 2003
NEWPORT NEWS, VA - GW senior righthander Greg Conden (Owego, NY/Owego Free Academy) pitched five strong innings and allowed just six hits and three earned runs while striking out four Tiger batters as GW defeated Towson, 8-5, in the first game of a doubleheader at Newport News, VA. Conden is now 3-1 on the season and 31-12 in his career.
Colonials senior Travis Crowder (Manassas, VA/Osbourn) slammed a three-run homer in the bottom of the second inning to give GW a 4-1 lead.
GW sophomore catcher Joe Michalski (Ellicott City, MD/Mt. Hebron) added a solo shot in the bottom of the third inning, his second of the season.
Towson (0-1) pushed across single runs in the first, third and fifth innings and a pair of runs in the top of the seventh to make things interesting.
GW freshman shortstop Tom Shanley (Stanfordville, NY/Pine Plains) extended his hitting streak to nine games and has hit safely in every game of his brief college career for the Colonials (5-4, 0-0 Atlantic 10).
GW reliever Nick Koken (Basking Ridge, NJ/Immacualta) came on in the top of the seventh to strike out Towson's Tom Trela with the bases loaded to earn his second save.
Freshman Dan Pfau (Flemington, NJ/Hunterdon Central) is scheduled to start the second game of the doubleheader Friday night against Towson at Christopher Newport University.
