March 29, 2014
SAINT LOUIS - The George Washington baseball team dropped the middle game of a three-game set, 10-4, to Atlantic 10 rival Saint Louis on Saturday afternoon at the Billiken Sports Complex.
Sophomore Matthieu Robert went 2-for-4 with an RBI and two runs scored to lead the Colonials at the plate, while freshman Colin Gibbons-Fly was 2-for-2 and freshman Kevin Mahala was 1-for-2 with two RBIs.
Saint Louis (15-9, 5-0 A-10) took an early 1-0 lead in the bottom of the second, but the Colonials tied it an inning later on a sacrifice fly by Mahala.
The Billikens, however, broke the game open with four runs in the bottom of the third and two more in the fourth to take a 7-1 lead.
GW (7-15, 1-4 A-10) rallied for three runs in the seventh to pull within three, 7-4. After back-to-back walks and a fielder's choice put runners on first and third with one out, Robert singled to right to bring home one run and another run scored on a wild pitch. Mahala followed with an RBI single to plate Robert with the third run of the inning.
SLU scored three runs, all on bases loaded walks, in the bottom of the eighth to account for the 10-4 final margin.
Senior Aaron Weisberg (0-5) was charged with seven runs, but only two earned, on nine hits in 3.2 innings of work to take the loss. Nick Bates (4-0) gave up four runs on six hits and two walks in 6.2 innings and earned the win for the Billikens.
GW and Saint Louis will play the series finale on Sunday afternoon at 1 p.m. ET at Billiken Sports Complex. Sophomore Bobby LaWarne will get the start for the Colonials against SLU's Josh Moore.
