Colonials Split A-10 Doubleheader Against Duquesne
GW Takes Game One 3-1, Falls in Game Two 2-1
April 23, 2005
ARLINGTON, VA - George Washington University (24-13, 6-5 A-10) starter RHP Derrik Lutz (Grantville, PA / Lower Dauphin) (5-0) allowed one run on three hits and struck out 11 in his seven inning complete game win in the Colonials 3-1 victory over Duquesne University (13-21, 8-6 A-10) in the first game of a doubleheader Saturday afternoon at Barcroft Park. GW squandered a strong pitching performance from LHP Dan Sullivan (Stony Point, NY / North Rockland) (5-4) and lost to the Dukes in game two, 2-1.
Right fielder Brad Rosenblat (New Orleans, LA / Newman / Tulane) knocked his conference leading 13th home run in the third inning to put GW a head 1-0 in the first game.
Duquesne tied the contest in the top of the fourth inning when first baseman Aaron Janusey doubled in a run to set the score at 1-1.
The Colonials scored a run in the fifth on catcher Joe Michalski's (Elliott City, MD / Mt. Hebron) RBI single and another run in the sixth to give GW its 3-1 win.
Duquesne starter LHP Scott Chisholm (3-4) threw six strong innings, allowing three runs, as he took the loss.
Game two remained scoreless until the fifth inning when the Dukes scored their two runs in the top half of the frame and the Colonials added their one run in the bottom half.
Duquesne left fielder Patrick Kimutis' two-run home run turned out to be the difference in the contest as GW third baseman Geoff Milsom's (New York, NY / Notre Dame) RBI single accounted for the entire team's offense.
RHP starter Bob Reifschneider (2-5) was outstanding for the Dukes, earning the seven inning complete game win with nine strike outs while allowing just three hits and one run.
Sullivan was extremely sharp early on as he retired the first 10 batters he face and allowed just two earned runs in 5.1 innings as he suffered the loss.
The third and final game of the series between GW and Duquesne is set for Sunday at 12:00 pm at Barcroft Park.
