Best With Three Hits & Three RBI
March 16, 2011
ARLINGTON, VA- The George Washington baseball team returned to Barcroft Park on Wednesday afternoon but were unable to hold off visiting William & Mary, falling 9-4.
GW (6-11) fell behind 1-0 in the second inning but responded in the bottom half with junior Brett Bowers' RBI groundout. Junior Jimmy Best followed with his first hit of the day, a RBI single to give the Colonials a 2-1 lead.
Best played his strongest game of the young season, collecting three hits (one double) and three RBI while throwing out three baserunners from behind the plate. Bowers finished 2-for-3.
The game remained tied until the fifth inning when William & Mary strung together a series of two-out hits to tie the score at 2-2. In the sixth inning the Tribe used two RBI singles and a costly error to plate three runs to push the lead to 5-2.
Senior Tommy Gately (2-2) pitched five and one-third innings and allowed three earned runs with five strikeouts.
Best added GW's final run in the bottom of the eighth but only the Colonials generated just one hit over the final two innings against Tribe closer Reid Killen.
Sophomore LHP Brian Derner (1-1, 2.86) will take the ball on Friday afternoon in Arlington as the Colonials welcome Marist to Barcroft Park for a three-game series. Marist swept GW last season and holds a 5-3 series edge.
