Colonials Drop 9-5 Decision To Cross Town Rival Georgetown
George Washington will look to rebound at Richmond over the weekend
April 14, 2010
ARLINGTON, VA - The George Washington University baseball team returned to action on Wednesday afternoon at Barcroft Park and lost a 9-5 decision to rival Georgetown. The Colonials lost three of four this season to the Hoyas and all games were decided by four runs or less. It was a bullpen day for George Washington as they saw seven pitchers throw, with none of them going longer than two innings.
The offense was led by sophomore Ollie Mittag who recorded three hits and also reached base on a walk. Senior Jon Chirumbolo also hit a home run over the left field wall in the eighth inning and scored two of the runs. Senior Curtis Eward also got a start at first base and drove in two runs and scored two of his own.
The Hoyas offense was led by Tommy Lee who recorded three hits and also reached base on a walk. Bobby Kirby got the start for Georgetown and allowed three runs in 4 2/3 innings to pick up his third win of the season. The Hoyas bullpen then came in and pitched the final 4 1/3 innings and allowed just one earned run.
The Colonials will now head to Richmond, VA for a critical three-game series against the Spiders. George Washington is currently in a tie for first place with Charlotte as they both have 7-2 records. The Friday game is set for a 3:00 p.m. first pitch and the Colonials will send senior Ryan Lapointe to the mound.
