Lehman's Eight Innings Leads to Series Win Against Dukes
Colonial right hander Pat Lehman wins fifth game in 6-1 victory
April 26, 2009
PITTSBURGH, PA - The George Washington University baseball team won their second road series of the weekend, when they won 6-1 against the Duquesne Dukes on Sunday afternoon. Senior right-hander Pat Lehman went eight innings strong, allowing just one earned run and struck out five.
Junior Ryan LaPointe recorded his second save of the weekend with a scoreless ninth inning, to improve the Colonials to 8-9 in A-10 conference play.
The game was tied through four innings, but the Colonials were able to get on the board first in the fifth inning a home run by Tim Reeves to open a 1-0 lead. The Colonials were also able to score two runs in the sixth inning, keyed by a two-run home run bu Chris Holland to open the lead to 3-0.
The Dukes fought back for their only run of the game in the sixth inning, but the Colonials opened up the game with another run in the seventh and two more in the eighth to build a 6-1 lead. This was more than enough for Lehman, who lowered his ERA to 2.16 on the season.
George Washington now sits in the seventh spot in the A-10 standings, just a half game behind sixth place Fordham, who has a 9-9 conference record. The top six teams in the A-10 will qualify for the conference tournament next month in Dayton, OH.
The Colonials will return home to Barcroft Park this week, when they host Towson on Tuesday followed by a series against Saint Louis this weekend with lots of A-10 conference standing implications. The Tuesday game is set for a 3:00 p.m. start and the Colonials starting pitcher is still TBA.
