March 7, 2004
ARLINGTON, VA - The Colonials (4-7) defeated Vermont (0-1) 9-3 in nine innings in the first game of a doubleheader at Barcroft Park. Brad Rosenblat led the Colonials charge with two home runs while reaching base all four times to the plate for three RBI and three runs. GW had eight hits from the middle four batters of their lineup. Freshman Anthony Smith threw six strikeouts in six innings for his second win of the year and fellow freshman Derrik Lutz struck out three in three scoreless innings for his first save.
Smith gave up three runs, two of which were earned on six hits and walked only one in the third start of his career. He struck out five in the first three innings including all three in the second. In the third he gave up two singles but picked off both runners, recording the last out on a complex run-down which was scored a 1-3-6-1-4-9 pick off with the right fielder tagging the runner out at first. Smith allowed a run on a solo homer from Barry Chamberland who went three-for-four for Vermontwith two of the team's three runs. Lutz entered the game in the seventh and got GW out of a jam by retiring the first five batters he faced. He only gave up two hits and struck out three in his first career save. GW ended the game on a double play.
Offensively, the Colonials bats came alive with hits from seven of their nine starters including four players with two hits each. Rosenblat hit a two-run home to right in the fourth to put the Colonials ahead for good and then added a solo homer to center in the eighth. He belted three RBI and scored three runs after reaching base four times, after being hit by two pitches. Jeff Fertitta had a two-run double batting righty blasting a ball the opposite way to score Anthony Raglani and Ryan Roberson who each had two hits in the game. Geoff Milsom extended his hitting streak to five games and added a run and an RBI. Tom Shanley failed to get a hit for the first time in nine games ending his streak. Sophomore Matt Owens hit a two-run home run for his second of the year in GW's final turn at the plate.
