ROCK HILL, SC - RHP Josh Wilkie (3-2) started and went 7.0 innings, struck out 10, scattered three hits and did not allow a run in George Washington University's (5-12) 7-0 victory over Wagner College (0-10) Saturday evening in the second day of the Coca-Cola Classic at the Winthrop Ballpark.
Catcher Andrew Abokhair (Ashburn, VA / Broad Run) put the Colonials ahead 3-0 in the fifth inning with a two-run single and second baseman Bryan Hwang's (Northvale, NJ / Northvale) first collegiate RBI highlighted a four-run sixth.
Overall, Abokhair went 3-for-4 in the game.
Mike D'Angelis (0-3) started for the Seahawks and allowed five earned runs and struck out six in 5.1 innings as he suffered the loss.
Haese has now pitched 3.1 consecutive innings without allowing a run.
All three GW pitchers combined to hold Wagner to six hits in the game, none going for extra bases.
The game was delayed in the fourth inning for 16 minutes due to an unusually strong sun set.
The Colonials play their third and final game of the Classic Sunday afternoon against the host team, Winthrop University.
GW Freshman RHP Pat Lehman (0-0, 6.75 ERA) will make his first collegiate start.
Game time is 2:30 pm.
