GW Baseball Falls at Charlotte, 10-4
Seven-Run Fourth Inning Sinks Colonials
April 13, 2013
CHARLOTTE - Freshman Nolan Lodden hit a three-run home run in the seventh inning, but Charlotte's seven runs in the fourth inning proved to be the difference as the 49ers defeated the George Washington baseball team, 10-4, on Saturday afternoon at Hayes Stadium.
Charlotte (21-13, 5-3 A-10) broke open a scoreless game by scoring seven runs in the bottom of the fourth inning off of GW (11-22, 5-6 A-10) starter Aaron Weisberg.
A lead-off single and sacrifice bunt by the 49ers put a runner on third with one out in the fourth. Tony Montalbano put Charlotte up 1-0 with an RBI single. Later in the inning, consecutive RBI singles by Shane Basen and Justin Seager extended the lead to 3-0.
The 49ers then got consecutive RBI doubles from Brad Elwood and Brett Lang to run the lead to 6-0. Derek Gallello capped the offensive burst with an RBI single to put Charlotte ahead, 7-0.
The 49ers added to their lead with two runs in the fifth inning on consecutive sacrifice flies to push the lead to 9-0.
In the top of the seventh, the Colonials put runners on first and second following a walk to sophomore Xavier Parkmond and a single by freshman Eric Kalman. Lodden then entered the game as a pinch hitter and hit his first career home run, a three-run shot over the left field wall to pull GW within six runs of the lead at 9-3.
Charlotte responded with an insurance run in the eighth to make the score 10-3.
The Colonials were able to score once more in the eighth on an RBI double from freshman Luke Olson, but Ryan Mas pitched a scoreless ninth to preserve the 10-4 win for Charlotte.
Charlotte's John Hamilton earned the win after striking out six and yielding four earned runs in eight innings of work. Weisberg took the loss after allowing seven earned runs on 11 hits in 3.2 innings.
GW and Charlotte will conclude the series on Sunday afternoon at Hayes Stadium. First pitch is scheduled for 1:00 p.m.
