GW Baseball Splits Sunday Doubleheader With Cornell
Colonials Take 3-of-4 From Big Red This Weekend
March 10, 2013
ARLINGTON, Va. - The George Washington baseball team concluded its homestand by splitting a doubleheader with visiting Cornell on Sunday afternoon at Barcroft Park.
GW (3-10) clinched the series with a 1-0 extra-innings walk-off win in Game 1 before dropping the nightcap, 7-5.
Freshman Max Kaplow pitched 5.2 innings of shutout ball, allowing just two hits, in the first game before turning the ball over to junior Craig Lejeune in the sixth inning. Kaplow exited the game with the bases loaded and two outs, but LeJeune promptly ended the threat in two pitches by inducing a ground out.
LeJeune did not yield a hit over his 2.1 innings, but did run into trouble in the eighth (games played to seven innings in doubleheader) after a pair of GW errors put a runner on third. LeJeune thwarted the threat by striking out the final batter of the inning, setting the stage for the walk-off win.
After a flyout, junior Owen Beightol poked a groundball to third base and the throw by the third basemen allowed him to reach first base safely as Nammack crossed the plate to clinch the Colonials' third straight victory.
Cornell (4-4) saw its offense come alive in the first inning of the second game as the Big Red scored six runs to take an early 6-0 lead.
The Colonials got single runs in the in the bottom of first and fourth innings via an RBI double from senior Derek Brown and run-scoring fielder's choice by Hickey to cut the deficit to 7-2.
GW would score three more runs in the final three frames on RBIs from Albright, junior Brookes Townsend and Beightol, but it was not enough to overcome the early deficit as Cornell avoided the sweep with the 7-5 victory.
Nammack went 4-for-5 with a double and two runs scored across the two games while Townsend recorded three hits on the afternoon.
The Colonials return to action on Tuesday with a visit to nearby Towson University. First pitch between the Colonials and Tigers is scheduled for 3 p.m. at John B. Schuerholz Park.
