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.
The Buff and Blue contingent had barely settled into the Tucker Field bleachers before Fordham loaded the bases Thursday against Nathan Woods.
