GW Baseball Sweeps Massachusetts With 1-0 Win on Sunday
Colonials Yield Just Two Runs in Three-Game Series Sweep
March 24, 2013
ARLINGTON, Va. - The George Washington baseball team earned an Atlantic 10 opening sweep of Massachusetts with a 1-0 win on Sunday afternoon at Barcroft Park.
Kaplow pitched 6.2 shutout innings and allowed just two hits with six walks and one strikeout to earn his second win of the season. He routinely escaped jams in the later innings and ultimately stranded 10 runners on base.
LeJeune took over in the seventh inning and did not allow a hit with two strikeouts in 2.1 innings of work to earn his third save of the season.
The Colonials got their lone run in the top of the fourth inning. After junior Owen Beightol singled with one out, freshman Eric Kalman lined a 3-1 pitch to the gap in right center field for a RBI double which scored Beightol and gave the Colonials all the run support they would need.
GW's pitching staff boasted a 0.67 ERA over the weekend while holding the Minutemen to a .149 batting average. LeJeune earned two saves in 4.1 shutout innings while senior Ryan Hickey led the offense with a .444 batting average with three doubles and three RBIs.
The weekend victories mark the second time this season the Colonials have rattled off three straight wins.
GW will look to extend its streak with a midweek visit to UMES (Tues., 3 p.m.) and a Wednesday home game against UMBC (3:00 p.m.).
