GW Baseball Cruises in Series Opener at Saint Joseph's
Parker and Kruer Combine for Seven Hits and Five RBI in the Win
April 20, 2007
PHILADELPHIA, PA - George Washington (14-23-1, 6-7 A-10) led 9-1 after five innings and cruised the rest of the way as they defeated Saint Joseph's (6-27, 3-10 A-10) by a final of 12-5 Friday afternoon at Latshaw-McCarthy Field in the opening game of an Atlantic 10 Conference series.
For the second week in a row, Pat Lehman (Fair Lawn, NJ/Fair Lawn) delivered a strong pitching performance to earn the win (4-4). The sophomore scattered eight hits over eight innings and allowed four runs, just one of which was earned.
The Colonials scored early and often against the Hawks, plating three runs in the first and two each in the third, fourth and fifth innings. GW recorded three doubles in their first four at-bats of the game.
In the fourth inning, GW extended their lead with Gavin's Swanson's eighth home run of the season, and his second in as many games.
The long ball provided the Colonials with even more of cushion in the fifth inning, as Charlie Kruer blasted a two-run shot into right-center for his team-leading 10th home run of the season. The junior finished his day 3-for-4 with four RBI.
Michael Parker (Newton, MA/Newton South) was 4-for-4 with four runs scored and two doubles as the senior shortstop reached base safely in all five trips to the plate. It was Parker's second four-hit performance of the season and his team-leading 18th multi-hit game.
George Washington and Saint Joseph's will play the second game of their three game Atlantic 10 Conference series Saturday at 1:00 p.m.
