GW Baseball's Win Streak Snapped in 4-1 Loss to UMBC
Colonials Host Temple at Barcroft Park This Weekend
March 27, 2013
ARLINGTON, Va. - The George Washington baseball team had its four-game win streak snapped on Wednesday afternoon as the Colonials dropped a 4-1 decision to UMBC at Barcroft Park.
Derner was dominant in the early portion of the game before running into trouble in the sixth. He did not allow a hit through the first five innings and struck out five with two walks.
UMBC (6-9) worked a leadoff walk to open the sixth inning and followed with its only hit off Derner, a run-scoring single by leadoff hitter Kevin LaChance to tie the score 1-1. Derner exited the game, but the Retrievers got a two-run home run later in the inning from Jake Barnes to take a 3-1 lead.
The Colonials had an opportunity to cut into the lead in the eighth inning, but squandered a base runner on a steal attempt and ultimately stranded a runner on third base.
UMBC added an insurance run in the ninth to take a 4-1 lead.
Jon Cohn earned the win for UMBC after allowing just two hits in six shutout innings of relief.
Albright and Townsend each finished with two hits for the Colonials.
GW will resume its Atlantic 10 schedule this weekend when it hosts Temple at Barcroft Park. The three-game series begins on Friday at 3:00 p.m.
