Baseball Falls to James Madison, 7-4
Furious Late Rally Falls Short
March 27, 2002
Washington, D.C. - The Colonials ninth inning rally against James Madison came up short in a battle between teams with presidential namesakes. After scoring two runs on two hits in the bottom of the ninth, GW had two outs and one runner on first hoping to catch the Dukes. Catcher Joe Michalski (Ellicott City, MD/Mt. Hebron) was ready to contribute, hitting the ball hard, but it was caught by shortstop Nathan Doyle to end the game. The Colonials are now 12-11 overall, 2-1 in the A-10, while the Dukes improve to 19-6.
The Colonials struggled to bring anyone home the first six innings, but did counter the Dukes' offensive attack in their final three at-bats, scoring runs in the seventh, eighth and ninth innings. The Dukes made it tough on the Colonials, hitting five home runs in the game. Centerfielder Kurt Isenberg hit three of JMU's home runs, with Travis Ebaugh and Eddie Kim each contributing one as well. GW managed several nice hits in return, including doubles by Tony Brown (Hockessin, DE/A.I. DuPont), Matt Krimmel (Schnecksville, PA/ Parkland), and Anthony Raglani (Indiana, PA/Indiana). Brown improved his average by hitting four on four at-bats, as well as a sacrifice RBI to bring home Jake Wald (Alexandria, VA/T.C. Williams) in the bottom of the eighth. Krimmel initiated the Colonials ninth inning rally with his double to left centerfield. He came home on an RBI single to centerfield by Raglani. Raglani then gave GW another run when Tony Dokoupil (Severna Park, MD/Severna Park) made it to first on a fielder's choice.
The Colonials will now travel to Amherst, MA to play Massachusetts in their second Atlantic 10 series of the season. The teams will play a doubleheader on Friday, March 29 at 12:00 p.m. and a single game on Saturday, March 30, also at 12:00 pm.
