LeWarne's One-Hitter Leads GW Baseball Past Monmouth, 1-0
Colonials Win Series on Campbell's RBI Single in 8th
March 16, 2014
ARLINGTON, Va. - Sophomore Bobby LeWarne allowed just one hit and fanned seven batters with no walks in a complete-game shutout to lead the George Washington baseball team to a 1-0 victory over Monmouth on Sunday afternoon at Barcroft Park.
LeWarne was perfect through five innings before allowing his only blemish, a base hit to lead off the sixth inning, and faced just one batter over the minimum. He threw 105 pitches with 71 going for strikes.
The Colonials scored the winning run in the bottom of the eighth inning when senior Owen Beightol led off the frame by slicing a double down the left field line. He advanced to third on a sacrifice bunt by freshman Cody Bryant and scored when freshman Bobby Campbell sent a base hit up the middle, giving the Colonials the 1-0 advantage.
LeWarne came back on for the ninth and induced two groundouts for the first two outs of the inning. He ran the count to 3-1 against the final batter of the game but got a groundout to clinch the complete game.
Monmouth's Chris McKenna took the loss after allowing one run on three hits with four strikeouts in 7.1 innings of work.
The Colonials hit the road for two this upcoming week for two non-conference contests. GW visits Delaware State on Tuesday at 3:00 p.m. before traveling to play Georgetown on Wednesday at 3:00 p.m.
