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.

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.
