March 23, 2003
Norwich, CT -- George Washington (16-5, 1-1) won game two of today's doubleheader with Rhode Island in Norwich, CT with a 10-2 win in the nightcap. Colonials pitcher Dan Sullivan pitched a complete game victory for his first of the year giving up only two runs on four hits. Only one of the Rams runs were earned as Sullivan lowered his season ERA to 3.33. Chris Barry hit a single, double and triple in GW's first Atlantic 10 win of the year.
George Washington took an early 1-0 lead when they scored an unearned run with two outs. The score remained 1-0 until the top of the fourth when senior Chris Barry led off with a triple and scored on a single from fellow senior Tony Dokoupil. The Colonials added two more runs, including what would prove to be the game-winning run when Dokoupil scored on an RBI double from senior Travis Crowder. Freshman Tom Shanley closed out the scoring for the inning with an RBI single, scoring Crowder. George Washington added some insurance runs in the top of the fifth, scoring six runs on seven hits to take a 10-0 lead.
Rhode Island scored two runs in the bottom of the fifth on a sacrifice fly from Dan Batz and an unearned run. Sullivan shut the door from there to claim his first victory of the season. The Colonials are split with Rhode Island (6-11, 1-1) going into Monday's series finale. The Colonials who lead the Rams 12-4 all-time will throw Nate CasaGrande (2-1). The two teams will play at Dodd Stadium in Norwich, CT with the first pitch scheduled for noon.
