GW Baseball Knocked Off by Richmond, 3-1
Kaplow Throws Six Shutout Innings but Spiders Strike Late
April 6, 2013
ARLINGTON, Va. - Freshman Max Kaplow fanned five batters in six shutout innings but Richmond scored late runs on the way to a 3-1 victory over the George Washington baseball team on Saturday afternoon at Barcroft Park.
GW (11-19, 5-3 A-10) received a strong start from Kaplow, who allowed just two hits through his first five innings of work on the way to turning in six shutout innings.
Richmond (20-9, 5-3 A-10) countered Kaplow's effort with a strong start of its own, as Andrew Blum earned the win after allowing one run in 6.2 innings of work.
The Spiders grabbed a 2-0 lead in the seventh inning, following Kaplow's exit from the game. Tanner Stanley provided a bases-loaded RBI when he was hit by a pitch and Jacob Mayers added a sacrifice fly.
The Colonials responded in the bottom half of the inning with an RBI single from freshman Eric Kalman, cutting the deficit to 2-1.
The one-run advantage was enough for Richmond, as Mayers then shifted to the pitchers mound and proceeded to earn the save with 2.1 innings of shutout relief.
Richmond added an insurance run in the ninth inning on an RBI groundout from Mayers.
Junior Brookes Townsend finished 2-for-4 with a run scored, his fourth straight multi-hit effort and seventh of the season. Townsend also carries a team-best eight-game hit streak in Sunday's finale.
The Colonials send junior Aaron Weisberg to the hill on Sunday in the final game of the series. First pitch is scheduled for 1:00 p.m. A free fan shuttle will once again be in service before and after the game. Click here for more details.
