March 13, 2011

Saturday's contest against CCSU was played at the United States Naval Academy in Annapolis, MD. Sophomore Brian Derner got the win after allowing just one earned run in six and two-third innings, striking out eight batters.
GW (5-9) got out to an early 2-0 lead after sacrifice flies from sophomore Tyler McCarthy in the second and senior Brendon Kelliher in the third. CCSU would respond by tieing the game in the bottom of the third but freshman Jordan Berry's RBI single in the fifth inning proved to be the winning run.
Derner then handed the ball over to senior Joe Richardson, who pitched a scoreless two and one-third innings of relief, allowing just one hit to secure the victory.
On Sunday, redshirt senior Bobby Lucas fanned nine batters and Brendon Kelliher was 4-for-6 with a homerun, double and three RBI as the GW offense came alive to club Binghamton 13-8.
Binghamton held their only lead of the day after the top of the first inning when Dave Ciocchi connected on a three-run homerun to put the Bearcats ahead 3-0.
In the bottom of the fourth Kelliher connected on a 1-1 pitch for a three-run homerun, the first of the season for GW. Sophomore Justin Albright also had a RBI single to extend the lead to 7-0.
Oswald added a solo homerun in the fifth inning and the Colonials followed with four more runs in the bottom of the sixth inning. Sophomore Tyler McCarthy had a two-run single while Albright and Oswald added RBIs. Oswald finished the day 3-of-4 with three RBIs.
Kelliher extended his streak of safely reaching base to 14 games with after being hit by a pitch against CCSU and his 4-for-6 day against Binghamton. His 11 game hitting streak ended on Saturday.
