Baseball Wins Fifth-Straight Game With 4-1 Victory Over UMass In Game One
Dan Sullivan Earns Complete Game Win Courtesy Of Ryan Roberson's Seventh Homer
March 27, 2004
ARLINGTON, VA - Dan Sullivan pitched a seven-inning complete game allowing only one run in GW's 4-1 win over Massachusetts. Ryan Roberson provided the offensive firepower for George Washington to win its fifth-straight game and improved to 14-10. UMass (5-6) drops under .500 with their first A-10 loss while GW wins their A-10 opener.
The Colonials scored three quick runs in the third inning when Ryan Roberson hit his seventh long ball of the year over the fence in left-centerfield. Roberson's homer was the 21st of his career and leaves him just one shy of GW's all-time list as a junior. Roberson not only leads GW in home runs but also has the most hits with 37 most total bases with 65 and steals with seven. Roberson's homer scored three because Tom Shanley had singled to get on base followed by Anthony Raglani's 21st walk of the season. Shanley's single extended his hitting streak to seven games after returning to the lineup from a hamstring injury.
Dan Sullivan improved his record to 2-3 and only allowed one run on four hits through his seven innings in his second complete game. Sullivan earned the run support he needed today after getting slapped with a 2-1 loss last weekend after giving up only two unearned runs in six innings pitched. Sullivan struck out nine batters and now leads GW with 34 strikeouts which is 11 more than any other pitcher. He walked two on the day and did not allow his lone run until UMass got three singles for a run by Mike Athas in the sixth inning. Sullivan had a one hitter going into the sixth and only allowed three singles on the day.
Jeff Fertitta scored the first run of the game in the second inning when he singled through the left side of the infield. After stealing second, catcher Joe Michalski drove him in with a single to leftfield. Geoff Milsom hit two singles to pace GW with two hits.
