ARLINGTON, VA - The George Washington University baseball team (15-25) scored six runs over the final five innings Wednesday afternoon in its game against Georgetown (19-24), but it wasn't enough as the Hoyas' five-run second inning proved to be the difference in a 10-6 victory over the Colonials at Barcroft Park.
