April 9, 2004
NORRISTOWN, PA - The Colonials extended their winning streak to eight games with an 11-8 come-from-behind victory over the Hawks to improve to 7-1 for first place in the Atlantic 10. George Washington (22-11, 7-1 A-10) used timely hitting and quality late-inning relief including two saves from freshman Derrik Lutz to sweep Saint Joseph's (6-29, 1-7 A-10) in an Atlantic 10 baseball doubleheader at Latshaw-McCarthy Field.
GW came from behind to claim game two despite being out-hit by the Hawks 16-10. The Colonials scored twice in the first and added three runs in the third, but the Hawks tallied four in the bottom of the first and added two runs in both the second and third inning to lead 8-5 after three. GW then added one run in the fourth, two in the fifth and three in the sixth to break an 8-8 tie and win game two 11-8.
Avi Rasowsky (3-1) tossed 3.1 innings of shutout relief to get the win. Lutz earned his second save of the day. Josh Wilkie started for GW and was banged around for eight runs and 10 hits in 2.1 innings. Adriano Petrutz started for SJU giving up eight runs and seven hits. Jeff Williams (0-2) pitched the final two frames and suffered the loss.
Junior Joe DiNubile was 4-4 with two RBI, Bill McCollum was 3-5 with two runs and Mike Gentile went 3-5 for SJU. Tarewicz also added two more hits. Greg Mason and Schappert both homered. GW's Ryan Roberson was 2-4 with three runs and three RBI in game two, including a two-run game-winning triple in the sixth. Brad Rosenblat also was 2-4 with a home run and four RBI. Raglani hit a solo shot in the nightcap.
The teams will conclude a three-game weekend set with a single nine-inning game on Saturday at noon.
