Baseball Sweeps A-10 Doubleheader With 13-5 Victory Over Rams
Anthony Raglani Had Three Runs, Josh Wilkie Pitched His Third Straight Win
April 3, 2004
BRONX, NY - The Colonials (18-11, 4-1) extended their winning streak to four games with a doubleheader sweep of Fordham (9-12-1, 3-2). GW won game two 13-5 when Josh Wilkie pitched a complete game for his third-straight win. GW has lost just one game in the Atlantic 10 so far this year.
In game two, the Colonials again jumped out to a 1-0 lead in the first as Anthony Raglani singled with one out, stole second and scored on an error. George Washington made it a 2-0 game in the second on a solo home run from Jeff Fertitta, his second of the season.
Matt Owens then opened the George Washington third with a double and, one out later, scored on a triple off the bat of Raglani. Raglani would then score on a wild pitch.
The Rams managed to make it a one-run game in the bottom of the inning, taking advantage of two George Washington errors. Jordan Lert opened the inning reaching second on an error and Brush sacrificed him to third. Drew Adler then plated Lert with a sacrifice fly to center. Greg Smith followed with a single and Kurt Thomas reached on an error with Smith moving to second. Joe Ciccone then delivered Smith with a single, moving Thomas to third. A single from John Mollicone then scored Thomas to make it a 4-3 game.
But the Colonials then exploded for nine runs in the top of the fourth on six hits and two Fordham errors. Milsom had a two-run double in the inning while Shanley, Raglani, Roberson, Anthony Smith and Fertitta each drove in a run.
The game would remain a 13-3 contest until the Fordham seventh when the Rams scored twice on a bases loaded double from Thomas.
Josh Wilkie (3-2) went the distance on the mound for the Colonials in game two, allowing eight hits and striking out five. Owens, Raglani, Smith and Milsom each had two hits in the game.
The two teams will close out the three-game series tomorrow with a single game on Jack Coffey Field beginning at noon.
The Buff and Blue contingent had barely settled into the Tucker Field bleachers before Fordham loaded the bases Thursday against Nathan Woods.
