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.
