ARLINGTON, VA - The George Washington University baseball team won their third straight game today at Barcroft Park with a 5-2 win over University of Maryland- Baltimore County. Freshman Michael Boyden got his first start and went four innings, allowing one earned run and struck out one.
The Colonials once again struck first with an RBI double by senior Bryan Hwang and added a second run on an RBI single by redshirt junior Sean Rockey. They doubled the lead to 4-0 in the very next frame on a sacrifice fly by Stephen Oswald and an RBI single by Holland.
Freshman Jay Lively came out of the bullpen for three more shutout innings to continue his strong rookie campaign on Foggy Bottom. Freshman Marshall Seedorff relieved Lively for the ninth inning and also threw a scoreless frame. Junior Bobby Lucas came into close the game in the ninth, but the Colonials added another insurance run in the eigthth, which pushed the lead to four and eliminated the save opportunity for Lucas.
The Colonials will return to the field tomorrow at Towson, as they start a four-game roadtrip the rest of the week. They will play at Sty. Bonaventure over the weekend.
