March 7, 2003
Newport News, VA - The Colonials (6-4) roled to a 20-4 victory in the second half of a double header against Towson (0-2) played at Christopher Newport in Newport News, VA. GW, who had won the first game 8-5 now leads the all-time series 19-18-2 over Towson. Freshman Dan Pfau notched his second win in his first start for the Colonials and was helped to victory by a battery of bombs from the men in buff and blue.
Going deep for the Colonials were Chris Barry (with his second homer of the year), Jeff Fertitta and Brad Rosenblat. The Colonials also knocked four doubles in a game that featured 20 runs. Freshman Tom Shanley extended his hitting streak to 10 by smacking two doubles during the double header versus Towson.
Josh Wilkie pitched one inning of effective relief for Pfau and then turned it over to rookie senior David Cutler who mowed down the final three Tigers in turn with consecutive strike outs. Pfau had six ringers in five innings of work allowing three runs (two earned) on five hits with two walks. Pfau recorded his second victory of the year having earned the win in the season opener against No. 16 Stetson in DeLand, FL.
