GW Baseball Wins Second Straight Over La Salle, 3-1
Williams Stymies Explorers with Eight Innings of One-Run Ball
April 12, 2014
PHILADELPHIA - Sophomore Jacob Williams pitched eight strong innings, allowing just one earned run, and sophomore Gabe Scott provided a key two-run single as the George Washington baseball team won its second straight game with a 3-1 win over La Salle on Saturday afternoon at Hank DeVincent Field.
Williams was on point for the Colonials, earning his team-best third victory of the season by surrendering just one earned run on two hits with a season-high six strikeouts in eight innings of work.
GW (11-21, 4-7 A-10) took a 2-0 lead in the top of the fifth inning in a sequence that started when senior Owen Beightol led off by reaching on an error. Junior Ryan Xepoleas followed with a single through the left side of the infield to advance Beightol to second base and both runners advanced a base on a sacrifice bunt by sophomore Matthieu Robert.
Scott then came to the plate and drove an 0-1 pitch to left field to score both runners and give the Colonials a 2-0 lead.
Beightol delivered a sacrifice fly in the top of the ninth to extend GW's lead to 3-0.
Williams came out to pitch the ninth, but allowed the first two batters to reach base via a hit batsman and a base hit.
Senior Colin Milon came on in relief and yielded a run-scoring double play before retiring the final batter for his fifth save of the season.
GW goes for the sweep over La Salle tomorrow afternoon in Game 3. First pitch is scheduled for 1 p.m. at Hank DeVincent Field.
