GW Baseball Falls in Finale, 6-2 at Richmond
Xepoleas Hits Second Home Run and Beightol Extends Streak
April 27, 2014
RICHMOND, Va. - Senior Owen Beightol extended his hit streak to 13 straight games but the George Washington baseball fell in the series finale, 6-2, at Richmond on Sunday afternoon at Pitt Field.
GW (14-27, 6-12 A-10) starter Aaron Weisberg, who briefly appeared in game one before Friday's weather suspension cut his start short, started game three on the mound and allowed single runs in both the first and second innings to open the game.
GW left the bases loaded in the top of the fourth before Richmond (18-22, 9-9 A-10) responded with three runs in the bottom half of the inning to extend its lead to 5-1.
The Spiders used a combination of an error and a sacrifice fly to score in the eighth inning, pushing the lead to 6-1.
Junior Ryan Xepoleas hit a leadoff home run to open the ninth inning, his second of the season, but Richmond recorded the final three outs to clinch the 6-2 victory.
GW's bullpen combined for 4.2 innings of one-run relief, with the only run being unearned. Freshmen Eddie Muhl and Andrew Piccin, along with sophomore Luke Olson and senior
Colin Milon, allowed seven hits in the combined effort.
Weisberg took the loss after allowing five earned runs on seven hits in 3.1 innings of work.
Xepoleas finished 2-for-4 with one home run while Selby was 2-for-2 with one RBI and one run.
The Colonials travel to Towson on Tuesday for a 3 p.m. start before returning to Richmond, Va., next weekend for a three-game set with VCU beinning on Friday.
