WASHINGTON - The George Washington baseball team held Georgetown scoreless for five innings but yielded 13 runs over the final four frames as the Hoyas topped the Colonials, 13-2, on Friday afternoon at Shirley Povich Field.
GW (4-12) got a solid start from junior southpaw Brian Derner, who allowed just three earned runs in 6.2 innings with six strikeouts.
The Colonials took a 1-0 lead in the bottom of the second on an RBI single from sophomore Owen Beightol. Senior Jimmy Best drew a walk with one out and advanced to second on a single by classmate Brett Bowers. Beightol followed by poking an 0-2 pitch through the left side of the infield to put GW ahead, 1-0.
Bowers finished the day 2-of-3 at the plate and currently leads the Colonials with a .378 batting average.
GW maintained its 1-0 advantage until the sixth inning, when Georgetown (11-7) plated three runs to take a 3-1 lead. The Hoyas went on to add seven runs in the seventh following a crucial error with one out to extend their lead to 10-1. They added three more runs in the eighth and ninth innings to clinch the 13-2 victory.
The Colonials and Hoyas will resume their series on Saturday afternoon at Shirley Povich Field. First pitch is scheduled for 3 p.m.
