GW sophomore Ryan Roberson went a perfect four-for-four with three doubles, four RBI and three runs. Roberson came to the plate twice with the bases loaded and finished the first game of the doubleheader with a team high 44 RBI. Greg Conden picked up his fifth win of the year.
Conden (5-3) won his first game in more than a month leading the Colonials (21-11) to their second conference win over Duquesne (18-18). Conden pitched six innings giving up six hits and five runs while striking out eight and issuing three walks. Conden, the winningest pitcher in GW history, now has 33 career victories. This was his first win since defeating Delaware on March 13th.
The Colonials jumped out to an early lead with a five-run first inning after the first five Colonials got hits off of Duquesne starter Jesse Cramer (0-4). Chris Barry (2-3) picked up his first of two RBI in the first inning, he also scored twice. Travis Crowder (2-4) also scored twice and now has 170 career runs placing him fifth on GW's all-time runs list. Crowder led of the inning by hitting his ninth double of the year.

Duquesne who has the third-best record in the Atlantic 10, battled back with a run in the second inning and then four runs in the third inning. Three of the Dukes runs came when Conden gave up a two-out three-run home run to Duquesne's designated hitter Andy Gallina. Conden would settle down the rest of the way and pitched six innings before yielding to Dennis Gramolini who closed out the game for GW pitching a scoreless seventh inning.
After the Dukes tied the game in the third inning, Colonial's freshman Matt Owens put GW up for good with his second home run of the year. Roberson then scored the sole run in the fifth after hitting the last of his three doubles. The Colonials ran away with the lead in the sixth inning with eight runs on eight hits. Brad Rosenblat hit his third triple of the season scoring two. Joe Michalski came to the plate as a pinch hitter for Geoff Milsom in the sixth and promptly hit his fifth homer of the season.
