Baseball Wins Battle With Saint Joseph's
March 24, 2002
Washington, D.C. - GW shortstop Jake Wald's (Alexandria, VA/T.C. Williams) RBI single in the bottom of the sixth broke a three-all tie, putting the Colonials ahead of the Hawks by one run. GW would hang onto that lead for the next two and a half innings, beating Saint Joseph's University, 4-3, at Barcroft Park this afternoon. The Colonials improved to 12-10 overall and 2-1 in the Atlantic 10, while the Hawks fell to 2-17-1 overall and 1-2 in the Atlantic 10.
GW jumped to a 3-0 lead in the bottom of the third on an RBI homer by Mike Bassett (Paramus, NJ/ Paramus) to right field. He brought home Nick Iovacchini (Asheville, NC/Asheville), who had reached first on a fielder's choice, and Jeff Fertitta (Baltimore, MD/Loyola Blakefield), who had singled to left field. This marked Bassett's third home run of the season.
SJU scored single runs in the fourth and fifth, including a home run to left field by Pace Bradshaw. Pitching for GW during those innings was starter Dan Sullivan (Stony Point, NY/North Rockland). Sullivan pitched five innings, allowed two runs on six hits while striking out four without walking a batter. Justin Orenduff (Chesapeake, VA/Western Branch) took over for Sullivan in the sixth. In that inning he allowed one run on two hits, the only run that would be scored by the Hawks in the final four innings. Orenduff struck out six of 16 batters and notched his fourth win of the season.
GW reclaimed the lead in the sixth when Wald's single brought Tony Dokoupil (Severna Park, MD/Severna Park) home. Dokoupil was on third after doubling to centerfield and then advancing on a wild pitch.
The final two and a half innings became a pitchers' battle with seven batters striking out. The final score of the series finale between the Colonials and the Hawks was 4-3. GW took two of three in the series.
