April 24, 2004
DAYTON, OH - George Washington defeated Dayton, 13-3 in the first game of their three-game A-10 series with the Flyers. GW scored 13 runs on 16 hits, featuring five Colonials with multi-hit games. Anthony Raglani and Anthony Smith had three hits while Dan Sullivan picked up his 12th career win.
The Colonials (26-14, 10-3) scored four runs in the top of the first inning of game one and never looked back. GW's first inning runs came on three hits and three hit batters. Smith singled to score Shanley, and Brad Rosenblat singled to score Raglani and Ryan Roberson. The Colonials number nine hitter Joe Michalski was hit and earned an RBI when Smith was forced home by Dayton pitcher Drew Chesebro (1-3) who picked up the loss.
GW scored two more runs in the second on two doubles. Raglani who went three-for-five doubled and stole third to get into scoring position. Rosenblat then doubled scoring Raglani and Roberson for his third and fourth RBI of the game. Rosenblat went two-for-three and added two runs on a double and single to generate his game-high RBI total.
Dan Sullivan pitched six of the games seven innings to improve to 6-3 on the year earning his 12th career victory just two short of the all-time list. Sullivan's 12-5 career record is ninth all-time at GW with a winning percentage of .706. The junior needs just three more starts and eight more pitching appearances to enter the Colonials career leader's lists. On Saturday, Sullivan struck out seven over six innings allowing three runs on nine hits and just one walk. Dennis Gramolini pitched a scoreless seventh for his 48th career appearance leaving him just two off of GW's all-time list.
Dayton cut its deficit to 6-2 in the third on a two-RBI double by senior Tom Beechem after junior Nick Bohnenstiehl and freshman Mike Massa had reached on singles. The Flyers scored one more run in the fourth after three consecutive hits brought Massa home on a double from Bohnenstiehl.
The Colonials would extend their lead by adding three more runs in the fourth despite leaving the bases loaded. Tom Shanley opened the inning with a single to extend his hitting streak tying his season high of 11-games. After stealing second, Shanley scored on a single from Roberson. Roberson who advanced to second on the throw home then scored on a single from Smith. Michalski picked up another unusual RBI when he was walked with the bases loaded forcing Smith home for an easy run.
Shanley singled again in the top of the fifth and was driven in by Smith who now leads the team and the Atlantic 10 in RBI. Rosenblat scored a sole run in the sixth on a Jeff Fertitta RBI. Fertitta drove in two more in the top of the seventh to complete his three-run producing day. Fertitta moved up a slot and is now in eighth place all-time in RBI for GW with 138.
