March 15, 2011
BETHESDA, MD- The George Washington baseball team had their four-game winning streak halted on Tuesday afternoon as they fell to Georgetown 10-4 at Shirley Povich Field.
Georgetown took a 1-0 lead in the first inning off of freshman Aaron Weisberg and would add four more runs in the bottom of the fourth to extend the lead to 5-0.
GW (6-10) would answer in the top of the sixth inning when junior Stephen Oswald delivered a two-run double to cut the deficit to 5-2. The Hoyas responded with three runs in the bottom half to extend the lead to 8-2. Oswald finished the day 2-for-4.
Georgetown pushed the lead to 10-2 with two more runs in the bottom of the seventh.
Senior Brendon Kelliher connected on a two-run homerun to left field in the eighth inning, his second in the last three games, while sophomore Ryan Heinz allowed just one hit in 1.1 innings of relief, striking out three.
It was the Colonials' second loss to the Hoyas this season after falling 12-7 back on March 2. However, GW still leads the all-time series 89-36-1.
Senior Tommy Gately (2-1) will take the mound for the Colonials tomorrow afternoon at Barcroft Park against William & Mary. First pitch is scheduled for 4:00 pm.
