Colonial Baseball Hammers St. Bonaventure, 10-1
April 10, 2005
ARLINGTON, VA - Leftfielder Charlie Kruer (Old Bridge, NJ / Old Bridge) homered (3) and drove in three runs, right fielder Brad Rosenblat (New Orleans, LA / Newman / Tulane) tripled and drove in three while starter RHP Josh Wilkie (Alpharetta, GA / Chattahoochee) (2-2) threw seven scoreless innings and struck out seven in George Washington University's (18-11, 3-3 A-10) 10-1 romp Sunday afternoon over St. Bonaventure University (13-12, 3-6 A-10) in the final game of a three-game Atlantic 10 series match-up at Barcroft Park.
With the win, GW took two of the three games in the series.
Rosenblat's RBI single in the second inning and shortstop Michael Parker's (Newton, MA / Newton South) RBI sacrifice fly in the third put the Colonials up 2-0.
In the fourth, Kruer slammed a three-run home run to cap a five-run inning and put the Colonials up 7-0.
GW made it 10-1 in the fifth inning with three singles, two fielder's choice groundouts, that plated two, and an RBI sacrifice fly from first baseman Ryan Roberson (Silver Spring, MD / James H. Blake).
Roberson also stole two bases, putting him at a perfect 13-for-13 on the season.
The lone Bonnies' run came in the eighth inning when centerfielder Brian Pellegrini homered for the second straight game.
Wilkie scattered seven hits, allowing just one for extra bases, and did not walk a batter.
SBU starter John Zinnicker (0-4) was roughed up for 10 earned runs in four innings as he took the loss.
The Colonials hit the road next week as they'll face Towson Tuesday and then go to Richmond Saturday to open a three-game conference series against the Spiders.
