April 14, 2013
CHARLOTTE - The George Washington baseball team had a rally cut short in a play at the plate in a 2-1 loss at Charlotte on Sunday afternoon at Hayes Stadium.
GW (11-23, 5-7 A-10) trailed, 2-0, after the first inning, but freshman Bobby LeWarne, senior Kenny O'Brien and junior Colin Milon combined on eight scoreless innings of relief to keep the Colonials in the game.
In the top of the ninth, junior Brookes Townsend led off with a single and senior Owen Beightol walked. After a lineout, freshman Matthieu Robert reached on a fielder's choice, during which Charlotte second baseman Brad Elwood committed an error. The misplay allowed Townsend to score from second, cutting the deficit to 2-1, and Beightol advanced to third.
With runners on the corners and one out, senior Matthew Murakami laid down a squeeze bunt right in front of the plate. Charlotte pitcher Hunter May scooped the ball to the catcher, who applied the tag on a sliding Beightol for the second out.
May locked up the save by inducing a groundout for the final out.
Senior Justin Albirght led the Colonials with a three hits on the afternoon, while LeWarne turned in six shutout innings of relief.
The Colonials return home for the Jackie Robinson game against Towson at 3 p.m. on Tuesday before heading to Bronx, N.Y., for a weekend series at Fordham beginning Friday.
