GW Baseball Falls to Charlotte, 15-3
Colonials Make Return Trip to UMES on Wednesday
April 29, 2012
ARLINGTON, Va. - The George Washington baseball team was swept in a three-game series with Charlotte as the Colonials gave up 20 hits en route to a 15-3 loss against the 49ers in the series finale on Sunday afternoon at Barcroft Park.
The Colonials will return to the road for the first time since April 15 on Wednesday to conclude their season series with UMES, after GW defeated the Hawks, 9-6, on April 24.
A trio of GW (17-28, 3-12 A-10) errors and a nine-run fourth inning for Charlotte (20-23, 8-9 A-10) were the deciding factors in the finale.
Charlotte's Tyler Barnette earned the win after allowing just two earned runs and one hit in six innings of relief.
After taking a 6-0 lead after three innings, the 49ers, aided by a GW error, exploded for nine runs in the fourth to take a commanding 15-3 lead from which the Colonials were unable to recover.
The Colonials scored two runs in the top of the fifth inning by drawing three consecutive walks to load the bases followed by two fielder's choice sequences. Despite scoring the two runs in fifth, the Colonials were held hitless until senior Jimmy Best hit a two-out double in the top of the sixth inning.
