Colonials Take Game One Against Dayton, 3-1
Derrik Lutz Improves to 6-0 With Complete Game
With the win, the Colonials move to within one game of the Flyers for first place in the A-10's West Division.
Right fielder Brad Rosenblat (New Orleans, LA / Newman / Tulane) got GW on the board in the first inning when he led-off the frame with a single, stole second, moved to third on a ground out and scored on second baseman Tom Shanley's (Stanfordville, NY / Pine Plains) RBI ground out to put the Colonials ahead 1-0.
The Colonials notched their second run almost identically as to how they scored their first. First baseman Josh Goldberg (Albany, NY / Albany Academy) led-off with a single, stole second, moved to third on a ground out and scored when shortstop Mickey Shupin (Sea Girt, NJ / Wall) laid down an RBI sacrifice bunt.
Rosenblat produced another run in the fifth inning when he doubled, stole third and scored on third baseman Geoff Milsom's (New York, NY / Notre Dame) RBI ground out, setting the score at 3-0. Rosenblat was 2-for-3 with two runs scored.
Dayton came as close as 3-1 in the sixth inning when second baseman Galen Schumm led-off with a double and was driven home on left fielder Bryan Chandler's single.
Flyers' starter Craig Stammen (5-6) was effective as he allowed seven hits, just one for extra bases, and three runs in the defeat.
GW stole a season high seven bases as Rosenblat, Goldberg and Shupin each swiped two in the game.
Senior Ryan Roberson (Silver Spring, MD / James H. Blake) returned to the lineup after missing seven games due to an injury and went 1-for-3.
Game two of the series was originally scheduled to be played as part of a doubleheader on Saturday. However rainy conditions forced the start of the first game to be delayed three hours and, as a result, was postponed due to eminent rain and darkness.
Games two and three are now set to be played Sunday. Game one is scheduled for seven innings and an 11:00 am start time. Game two is scheduled for nine innings.
