Baseball Edges Delaware, 4-3
Senior rightfielder Brad Rosenblat goes 3-for-4 with an RBI to lead Colonials to sixth win in last seven games
April 28, 2005
ARLINGTON, VA - The George Washington University baseball team used a strong pitching performance from senior left-hander Avi Rasowsky (Glenmont, NY) and a pair of first-inning runs to top Delaware, 4-3, Thursday afternoon in a non-conference game at Barcroft Park. Offensively, senior Brad Rosenblat (New Orleans, LA) led the way as he finished 3-for-4 with an RBI and a run scored, while freshman Josh Goldberg (Albany, NY) added two hits and drove in a run.
With the win, GW improves to 27-13 overall, while Delaware falls to 19-20. Rasowsky (2-1) pitched 7.1 strong innings, while allowing three runs on nine hits with six strikeouts before giving way to sophomore Derek Haese (Littleton, CO) in the eighth. Junior Dan Pfau (Flemington, NJ) allowed a lead-off single in the ninth, but stranded the runner at third to record his fifth save of the season.
In the first, Rosenblat led off with a single and later stole second to get things started. Senior Geoff Milsom (New York, NY) followed with another single and Fightin' Blue Hens' starter Chris Garrick issued a walk to second baseman Tom Shanley (Stanfordville, NY) to load the bases. Sophomore Bill Simpson (Old Westbury, NY) forced in a run by drawing a second straight walk from Garrick, and a fielder's choice from Goldberg which allowed Milsom to score made it 2-0 Colonials.
Delaware evened the score with two runs in the fourth as Adam Tsakonas and Brandon Menchaca collected RBIs, but shortstop Mickey Shupin (Sea Girt, NJ) led off the bottom of the inning with a double down the third base line and later scored on a sinlge off the bat of centerfielder Matt Owens (Fayetteville, GA) to put GW ahead for good, 3-2.
A sacrifice fly from Rosenblat, which allowed Owens to score in the sixth, gave GW a two-run advantage, 4-2. The Fightin' Blue Hens scrapped together a run in the seventh to close the margin to a single run, but Haese and Fau combined to allow just two hits over the final 1.2 innings, while fanning two, to nail down the win.
The Colonials (27-13) return to action when they host Dayton on Saturday, April 30, in an Atlantic 10 doubleheader at 12 p.m. at Barcroft Park in Arlington, VA.
