GW Baseball Drops Rubber Match, 10-3, to George Mason
Three Players Tally Multiple Hits but Mason Wins Series & Earns #RevRivalry Point
April 6, 2014
ARLINGTON, Va. - Three players tallied multiple-hit games but the George Washington baseball team was unable to overcome an early deficit as the Colonials fell, 10-3, to George Mason in Sunday's rubber match at Barcroft Park.
George Mason (17-10, 5-2 A-10) earns the series victory and a point in the Revolutionary Rivalry with Sunday's win, giving the Patriots a 7-6 edge over the Colonials in the inaugural competition between the two athletic departments.
George Mason added three runs to its lead on a solo home run by Mick Foley and consecutive RBI doubles in the top of the fourth to take a 5-0 lead. The lead was extended to 7-0 after the Patriots plated two on three hits in the fifth.
The Colonials cut the deficit to five after a two-run double from freshman Colin Gibbons-Fly in the sixth inning but Mason responded immediately with a pair of runs in the top half of the seventh to push the advantage back to 9-2.
An infield RBI single by freshman Jon Steel in the bottom of the seventh gave GW its final run, making the score 9-3, but Foley's RBI single in the top of the ninth put the lead back at seven runs.
Mahala led off the bottom of the ninth with a double but was stranded on third to end the game.
Sophomore Bobby LeWarne took the loss for the Colonials after allowing five runs (four earned) on six hits in four innings of work with two walks and four strikeouts.
GW returns to action with a pair of midweek games at Barcroft Park. The Colonials will host Coppin State on Tuesday at 3:00 p.m. followed by the first of two games this season against Towson on Wednesday at 3:00 p.m.
