Baseball Blasts Past Monmouth, 12-0
Colonials crank out 15 hits; Sweeney tosses complete game shutout
ARLINGTON, Va. -- The GW baseball team used an offensive onslaught and a dominant pitching performance from Shane Sweeney to blast past Monmouth, 12-0, Saturday afternoon to even the three-game series at Tucker Field at Barcroft Park.
The Colonials (7-11) cranked out a season high 15 hits and added another eight walks while scoring at least one run in five separate innings. Center fielder Joey Bartosic was one of four Colonials with multiple hits, going 4-for-5 at the dish with three RBIs and two runs. Right fielder Andrew Selby was 3-for-5 with three RBIs and a run, while third baseman Cody Bryant and left fielder Mark Osis had two-hit days.
Sweeney (2-1), meanwhile, was equally as impressive on the mound. The senior lefty allowed just three hits in the first complete game performance of his career, striking out three and walking three. Sweeney worked without base runners on for much of the game, retiring the side in order in the first, third, fourth and seventh innings. He allowed just a single in the second and two in the fifth, but saw two of those runners wiped out on a double play and a caught stealing.
GW had it going in all phases as the defense turned four double plays on the afternoon and catcher Brandon Chapman threw out two would-be base stealers to squelch each of Monmouth’s threats.
For Monmouth (3-12), the bench was nearly cleared as the Hawks used 24 players in the game including six pitchers. Ricky Dennis (1-4) was tagged with the loss for Monmouth after surrendering six runs in 1 2/3 innings.
The Colonials will look for a series victory on Sunday, with first pitch from Tucker Field set for noon.
