The Rams added single runs in both the fourth and fifth innings to expand their lead to 5-1, but the Colonials rallied with a five-run fifth inning to take a 6-5 lead.
Junior Justin Albright led off the fifth by being hit by a pitch and advanced to third on a single by senior Stephen Oswald. Senior Brett Bowers followed with a RBI single which scored Albright and advanced Oswald to second.
The Colonials added two runs in the sixth when Grant Brown hit a two-run single to put the Colonials ahead 8-5.
Grant Brown finished 2-for-4 with four RBIs while Bowers, Oswald, Derek Brown and Gelling all finished with three hits apiece.
Senior Eric Lara pitched a perfect ninth inning for his first save of the season.
The Colonials return to action on Tuesday when they host Towson at Barcroft Park at 3:30 pm. GW beat the Tigers, 8-4, on March 14.
