April 23, 2013
ARLINGTON, Va. - Junior Owen Beightol and senior Justin Albright each extended their respective hitting streaks but the George Washington baseball team fell to UMES, 4-1, on Tuesday afternoon at Barcroft Park.
Beightol has hit safely in his last eight games while Albright, the reigning Atlantic 10 Player of the Week, has recorded a hit in six straight contests.
UMES (7-36) took a 1-0 lead in the top of the second inning on an RBI double from first basemen Jeffrey Fleetwood. The Hawks then added a second run in the top of the fourth on an RBI single from second baseman Joshua James.
GW responded in the bottom of the fourth, leading off with consecutive singles from Beightol and senior Tyler McCarthy. After a double play advanced Beightol to third, freshman Eric Kalman laced an RBI double down the right field line to pull the Colonials within one run at 2-1.
UMES plated a single run in top of the fifth on an RBI single from Byron Campbell, chasing GW starter Danny O'Donnell from the game.
Freshmen Luke Olson entered in relief to start the sixth inning and allowed a run to score on a sacrifice fly, which gave the Hawks a 4-1 lead. The run was the only blemish on Olson's afternoon as he went on to record five strikeouts in four innings of work.
J.P. Black earned the win for the Hawks, pitching a complete-game and yielding one run on eight hits. O'Donnell took the loss after giving up three runs in five innings of work.
GW returns to action on Wednesday evening with a visit to UMBC. First pitch is scheduled for 6:00 p.m.
