KINGSTON, R.I. - The George Washington baseball team scored two runs in the top of the first inning, but was held scoreless for the remainder of the game as the Colonials fell, 10-2, at Rhode Island on Friday afternoon at Bill Beck Field.

GW (11-18, 1-3 A-10) lost for just the second time in its last six games despite jumping out to a 2-0 lead following the first inning. Senior Matt Murakami led off the game with a single through the left side and junior Justin Albright followed with a triple to the gap in left center field to put the Colonials on the scoreboard. Senior Brett Bowers earned a RBI when he, despite being struck out, reached base on a wild pitch, which scored Albright from third to give GW a 2-0 lead.

Rhode Island (15-13, 5-2 A-10) tied the game with two runs in the bottom of the second inning on a two-run home run from right fielder Greg Annarummo.

The Rams added single runs in the third and fifth innings to take a 4-2 lead, then broke the game open with a four-run sixth inning. URI pushed two more runs across in the eighth inning to clinch the 10-2 win.

Albright finished 2-for-5 with one RBI and one run scored, and senior Stephen Oswald finished 1-for-3 with a walk.

Sophomore Colin Milon was strong in relief, pitching 1.2 innings and fanning three batters.

The Colonials and Rams will play the second of the three-game series tomorrow afternoon. First pitch from Bill Beck Field is scheduled for 1 p.m.
