Baseball Earns 20th Win With 9-4 Victory Over UMBC
Brad Rosenblat Reaches Base Five Times And Homers, Barry Knocks Four Hits Including A Double
April 15, 2003
BALTIMORE, MD - The Colonials trailed 4-0 after six innings, but scored five runs in the seventh and added four more in the ninth to defeat UMBC, 9-4, Tuesday afternoon at UMBC Alumni Field. Brad Rosenblat homered and reached base five times while Chris Barry had four hits including a double. Colonials reliever Dennis Gramolini earned his second win of the year holding the Retrievers scoreless down the stretch.
Gramolini earned the victory with 3 1/3 scoreless innings giving up four hits and striking out two. Nate CasaGrande had started the game for GW and pitched 5 2/3 innings allowing eight hits and three earned runs while striking out five. With the victory, the Colonials (20-11) notched their 20th win almost two weeks after earning win number 19.
UMBC senior righthander Mike Johnson (0-1), making his first start of the season, allowed no runs and just five hits in the first six innings, but surrendered five runs and five hits in the top of the seventh inning. Johnson was able to retire the first two batters before allowing four straight singles, followed by a hit batter and another single. The Retrievers also made three throwing errors in the frame. Matt Owens, Jeff Fertitta, and Brad Rosenblat all had RBI hits for George Washington.
The Colonials added four insurance runs in the top of the ninth inning off relievers Mark Maydak and Chris Yetter. Rosenblat smacked a two-run homer off Yetter to highlight the inning. This was Rosenblat's second homer of the year and he added two walks to his three-for-three performance. He topped all hitters with three RBI and also had one run.
GW now travels to play Penn State on Wednesday at 2:00 pm. This game was a late addition in response to the many rain outs over the last few weeks. The Colonials will return home for their first games at Barcroft Park in 25 days this weekend. GW hosts Atlantic 10 rival Duquesne for a three-game series on Saturday (doubleheader) and Sunday with games starting at noon.
