GW Fails in Sweep Attempt; Fall 5-3 to Cleveland State
Three Unearned Runs Do In Colonials
March 20, 2005
ARLINGTON, VA - Two Colonial errors led to three unearned Viking runs in the fourth inning as George Washington University (10-8) missed out on a three-game sweep Sunday of Cleveland State University (3-8), falling 5-3 at Barcroft Park.
Vikings' starter RHP Gian Testa (2-0) struck out 11 batters in seven innings and was touched for just an earned run as he took the win.
GW starter LHP Avi Rasowsky (Glenmont, NY / Bethlehem Central) (1-1) was strong in his 7.1 innings of work, allowing two earned runs and striking out five. Freshman reliever RHP Joel Brookens (Fayetteville, PA / Gettysburg Area) struck out three and did not allow a hit in the game's final 1.2 innings.
Each team posted a run in the first inning as CSU first baseman Dominic Erney drove in a run with a single in the top half of the inning and Colonials' first baseman Ryan Roberson (Silver Spring, MD / James H. Blake) drove in third baseman Geoff Milsom (New York, NY / Notre Dame), who led-off the bottom of the frame with a double.
After jumping out to a 4-1 lead in the fourth, Vikings' right fielder Marc Sikora made it 5-1 in the fifth inning with an RBI single.
GW added a run in the seventh and centerfielder Matt Owens (Fayetteville, GA / Fayette County) brought the Colonials to within two runs in the ninth when he drove in Roberson with a single.
The Colonials took two of three in the their weekend series with CSU, whose head coach is former GW skipper Jay Murphy.
GW travels to Dover, DE Tuesday to face Delaware State University. The first pitch is scheduled for 2:30 pm.
The Colonials return home Thursday to face Hartford and then open Atlantic 10 conference play with a doubleheader Saturday against Rhode Island.
