GW Baseball Edged By Shepherd, 2-1
Weisberg's Complete Game Not Enough to Stop Rams
March 31, 2012
ARLINGTON, Va. - The George Washington baseball team received a strong start from sophomore Aaron Weisberg but could not solve visiting Shepherd's pitching, as the Colonials fell to the Rams, 2-1, on Saturday afternoon at Barcroft Park.
GW (9-17) got off to a quick start in the bottom of the first, as senior Matthew Murakami led off with a single, stole second and third, and scored when senior Stephen Oswald reached on an error. The run stood as the Colonials' lone score of the afternoon.
Weisberg pitched a complete game, the Colonials' second in two days, but gave up what proved to be the winning runs in the third inning when Shepherd's Nate Minnich lifted a two-run home run to right field to give the Rams a 2-1 lead.
Weisberg settled down and gave up just two hits the rest of the game with none coming after the fifth inning. He fanned six batters and allowed just one walk. His earned run average stands at a team-best 1.86.
The Colonials threatened in the seventh inning, putting runners on first and second with one out, but were unable score the tying run.
GW and Shepherd will conclude their two-game series on Sunday afternoon at Barcroft Park. First pitch is scheduled for 1 p.m.
