Rosenblat's 3 RBIs Help GW Defeat Towson 7-5
Colonials Squander 5-0 Lead But Eventually Pull Out Win
With the score tied 5-5 in the bottom of the sixth inning, right fielder Brad Rosenblat (New Orleans, LA / Newman / Tulane) doubled to drive in left fielder Steve Santy (Gilford, NH / Laconia) - the eventual winning run.
Rosenblat put the Colonials on top 5-0 in the fourth inning when he slammed a two-run opposite field home run (12). The leadoff hitter went 3-for-5 with three RBIs and two runs scored in the game.
The Tigers had six hits but no runs off GW starter LHP Avi Rasowsky (Glenmont, NY / Bethlehem Central) through four innings but got things going in the fifth with four straight singles to open the inning and a run scoring double play to cut the Colonials' lead to 5-2.
Second baseman Pat Fields' two-run home run and an RBI double off the bat of left fielder Kyle Skellchock evened the contest for the Tigers at 5-5. Skellchock went 3-for-4 with two RBIs in the game.
GW reliever RHP Derek Haese (Littleton, CO / Dakota Ridge) (1-0) earned his first collegiate win out off the bullpen and LHP Dan Pfau (Flemington, NJ / Hunterdon Central) threw a scoreless ninth inning and struck out two as he collected the save (2).
Reliever RHP Steve Johnson (2-1) struck out five and allowed two runs in 3.2 innings as he took the loss.
In a juggled lineup, Mickey Shupin (Sea Girt, NJ / Wall) collected three hits in his first start at third base for the Colonials. Josh Goldberg (Albany, NY / Albany Academy) posted two hits and two RBIs in a spot start at first base.
