Baseball Wins Game One of Tri-Series At Dayton, 7-4
Game Two Pushed Back, Forming Sunday Twin-Bill
April 13, 2002
DAYTON, OH - The Colonials collected their 8th Atlantic 10 conference win of the 2002 season against the University of Dayton, 7-4, Saturday afternoon at Stuart Field. GW improves to 21-13 overall, 8-2 in the A-10, while the Flyers are now 19-10, 7-3 in the conference.
GW managed to score one run in the top of the first. Dayton then responded with three runs in the bottom of the first, two of which came off of a double by Aaron Reesh (East Palestine, OH) to left field. The Flyers added one more in the second to lead 4-1. The score did not change until the top of the fifth when the Colonials got four runs off of UD starter Jake Hanson on two hits. Hanson walked the first two batters, and then balked. Junior Jake Wald (Alexandria, VA/T.C. Williams) singled through the left side to bring both runners home. After a walk and a steal, Wald came home on a passed ball to tie the game at 4-4. Senior tri-captain Matt Krimmel (Schnecksville, PA/Parkland) then doubled to the left field corner to score the final run that inning. GW tacked on two more runs for the final margin in the top of the seventh on three hits off Aaron Pahs, who entered the game in the fifth.
Junior Greg Conden (Owego, NY/Owego Free Academy) finished up for his seventh win and fourth complete game of the year. Wald and Krimmel each notched two RBIs to contribute to the win. Wald was 4-4 for the day, while Krimmel went 2-2.
With the win, GW takes sole possession of third place in the A-10 West at 8-2, while the Flyers fall to fourth at 7-3. Xavier (9-1) remained in second place by sweeping La Salle, and Richmond remained undefeated in A-10 play (11-0) with a sweep of Duquesne.
Today's game was originally scheduled as a doubleheader, but rain in the Dayton area pushed back the start time to 4:00 p.m. On Sunday, the two teams will play two, beginning at noon.
