NEWARK, DE - George Washington could not handle the Blue Hens Tuesday afternoon at Bob Hannah Stadium. After allowing a high scoring inning for the University of Delaware in the bottom of the second, the Colonials slowed the Blue Hens down, but could not manage a comeback at bat. With the 6-1 loss, GW is now 10-9 for the season, while the UD has improved to 8-9.

He was followed by Glen Skutnick, who pitched for 3.2 innings, in which he allowed one run on three hits while facing 15 batters. The final GW pitcher was Dan Sullivan. Sullivan pitched for one scoreless, hit-less inning. For the Blue Hens, redshirt freshman Scott Rambo pitched eight innings in his first career start.

At the bottom of the sixth, with Anthony Raglani on second after being walked and then advancing to second on Joe Michalski's high chopper that sailed over first baseman Steve Harden, Tony Brown was walked. With bases loaded, Rambo walked Jake Wald, allowing Raglani to score.
