Baseball Wins a Wild One, 10-5, in 13 Innings Over Norfolk State
GW Back To Winning Ways After A Week Of Inclement Weather
April 1, 2003
NORFOLK, VA - The Colonials outlasted Norfolk State in a 13-inning marathon, ultimately winning, 10-5. In the Colonials' longest game of the season, the team used seven pitchers to defeat a resilient Norfolk State side. This is the Colonials' first win in more than a week due in large part to the cancelation of their last four games as a result of bad weather.
The two teams played to a 5-5 tie which held until the 13th inning when GW went ahead. Senior Tony Dokoupil scored the go ahead run after a double to leadoff the top of the 13th inning. His run was the first of five in the inning as GW won 10-5. While Dennis Gramolini got the win, Nick Koken closed out the game pitching a scoreless 13th.
After a week of cancelled games due to rain and snow, the Colonials threw several pitchers in today's game. Greg Conden (4-2) started his eighth game of the season for the Colonials and was followed in relief by Dan Sullivan, Paul Garner, Avi Rasowsky, David Cutler, Dennis Gramolini and finally Nick Koken. Gramolini was ultimately awarded the win, his first of the year.
The Colonials generated two runs on two solo homers in the game. Ryan Roberson hit his fifth homer of the season which leads all Colonials. Travis Crowder hit his third home run of the year, matching his previous career total. Crowder collected three hits on the day as did freshman shortstop Tom Shanley.
George Washington baseball hosted Norfolk State on March 19th, a game that GW won 12-1. The Colonials are now 4-0 all-time against Norfolk State and have a 17-7 overall record this year. GW started Atlantic 10 play with a 1-2 record after losing their first series to Rhode Island in Norwich, CT. The team plays a doubleheader at Towson starting at 1:30 PM on Wednesday. This weekend, GW will play a three-game series at St. Bonaventure. The Colonials lead the all-time series against the Bonnies 41-12.
