GW Baseball Falls in Doubleheader Versus Penn
Colonials and Quakers Conclude Series in Philadelphia on Sunday
March 16, 2013
ARLINGTON, Va. - The George Washington baseball team suffered a doubleheader sweep to Penn on Saturday afternoon at Barcroft Park.
Penn (7-5) escaped with a 2-1 win in Game 1 before posting a 9-2 win in Game 2.
GW (3-13) starter Luke Staub surrendered two earned runs in the complete-game loss in the opener. He fanned five batters for the third start in a row, but could not garner offensive support after allowing single runs in the first and third innings.
The Colonials cut the deficit in half by scoring a run in the bottom of the sixth on a RBI double to deep center field by senior Derek Brown. The extra-base hit scored freshman Andy Young from first base, who had been hit by a pitch to lead off the inning.
Brown was stranded on second to end the inning and Quakers' closer Ronnie Glenn walked one in the bottom of the ninth before striking out the side to earn the save.
In the second game, a pair of errors allowed Penn to build a 6-0 lead by the fourth inning. The Quakers collected 13 hits in the game en route to earning the 9-2 win.
GW got its runs from a RBI groundout by Young and a sacrifice fly from junior Owen Beightol.
The Colonials and Quakers will conclude their home-and-home series with a doubleheader in Philadelphia at Meiklejohn Stadium beginning at 12 p.m.
