April 30, 2002
ARLINGTON, VA - GW captured a win against the George Mason University Patriots Tuesday afternoon at Barcroft Park. The Colonials' final runs to take the lead in the bottom of the eighth were scored on a grand slam that sailed over the right field wall by senior tri-captain Matt Krimmel (Schnecksville, PA/Parkland). GW is now 31-15 overall (14-4 A-10), while the Patriots are now 23-24 for the season (9-4 CAA).
The Colonials managed the first run of the game in the bottom of the second on an RBI single to center field by Nick Iovacchini (Asheville, NC/Asheville) to drive in junior Tony Dokoupil (Severna Park, MD), who had singled. GW added another run in the bottom of the third on an RBI single to right field by senior Mike Bassett (Paramus, NJ/ Paramus) to score Krimmel, who had doubled along the right field line. In the top of the fourth inning, the Patriots battled back to tie the score at two on a single by Mike Taylor to right field to score Evan Howard and Robbie Robertson. The Colonials regained the lead in the bottom of the fourth on a three-run homer to right field by Krimmel, his first home run of the game. George Mason added two more in the top of the fifth to reduce the lead to one. Howard singled to center field to score Matt Cooksey and Adam Shorts, who doubled. The Patriots then tied the score at five in the top of the sixth on an RBI single by Bruce Baldwin and then took the lead for the first time in the seventh with two runs. GW responded in the bottom of the seventh with one run on a solo homer by freshman Joe Michalski (Ellicott City, MD/Mt. Hebron). With the Patriots leading 7-6, the Colonials scored the final margin on Krimmel's grand slam. Krimmel went four-for-five in the game, with seven RBIs. He now has hit 10 round-trippers this season and notched a total of 49 RBIs.
GW reliever Justin Orenduff (Chesapeake, VA/Western Branch) earned his seventh win of the season after pitching one scoreless inning, with three hits. Senior Mike O'Connor (Ellicott City, MD/Mt. St. Joe's) was given the save, his eighth this year.
The Colonials will host the Mount St. Mary's Mountaineers on Thursday, May 2 at Barcroft Park for a doubleheader. The first game begins at 2:00 p.m.
