Baseball Takes Two From Fairfield Winning Second Game 16-5
Freshman Tom Shanley Hits In 12th Straight Game While Senior Chris Barry Hits Third Homer In As Many Games
March 9, 2003
ARLINGTON, VA -- The Colonials jumped to an early lead over a deflated Fairfield team and completed the doubleheader sweep, 16-5 in nine innings at Barcroft Park today. First year pitcher Nate CasaGrande (Bridgewater, NJ/Bridgewater) pitched six solid innings and earned his first win of the year. Freshman Tom Shanley (Stanfordville, NY/Bethlehem Central) extended his hitting streak to an amazing 12 games. The starting shortstop now leads the Colonials with a .409 batting average.
Senior Chris Barry (Orchard Park, NY/Canisus) who was the hero in the first game hit another home run in the second. Barry has had a monster week batting .444 over the last four games. He has three homers, two doubles five runs and 10 RBI in this week's two doubleheaders versus Towson and Fairfield. Barry was replaced in center field late in the last game by freshman Matt Owens (Fayetteville, GA/Fayette County) who kept the good times rolling with a double for his career first collegiate hit.
Colonials leadoff specialist Travis Crowder (Manassas, VA/Osbourn) who played second base for both of today's games scored four times in game two. He now moves into the eighth spot on GW's all-time runs list with 146 in his career. He is also tied for sixth on the all-time stolen base list with 50 over his five year career.
Tony Dokoupil (Severna Park, MD/Severna Park) also cracked the Colonials' Top 10 in stolen bases racing to his 40th and a share of 10th place on the all-time list. He double for the second time on the day going 2-2 with three runs and an RBI in game two.
The Colonials have hit twice as many home runs (14) than their opponents this year. Today's bash brothers joining Barry were Ryan Roberson (Silver Spring, MD/James H. Blake) and Joe Michalski (Ellicott City, MD/Mt. Hebron). Roberson who is hitting .326 this year, registered his first homer while Michalski has gone yard thrice.
Up next, the Colonials will play host to UMBC on Tuesday at 2:30 PM at Barcroft Park.
