Colonials Offense Silenced in 4-1 Defeat at Massachusetts
Colonials (23-20, 11-6 A-10) manage a season-low three hits in defeat to even series
May 1, 2010
AMHERST, MA - The George Washington University baseball team resumed their series at Massachusetts on Saturday afternoon and had trouble getting their offense going in a 4-1 loss. The loss even the series with Massachusetts (11-22, 8-9 A-10) and dropped their conference record to 11-6 in A-10 conference play.
Junior Eric Cantrell took the mound for the Colonials and allowed two earned runs in an eight inning complete game effort, but still dropped to 7-2 on the season. Chris Holland drove in the lone Colonial run in the fourth inning on an RBI single.
George Washington made a late charge in the ninth inning, bringing the tying run to the plate but were unable to capitalize on the opportunity. Senior Jared Freni had a strong day on the mound for the Minutemen, pitching eight innings and didn't allow an earned run. He also allowed just two hits and struck out five batters.
The Colonials still hold the second spot in the A-10 conference standings, leading St. Joesph's by a half a game with the Hawks game currently still in process. The all important top six seeds continued to be very busy with sixth seed Rhode Island holding a 10-8 conference record, 1.5 games behind the Colonials.
The Colonials will look once again to win the series when the same two teams meet tomorrow in the series finale. Junior Joe Richardson will take the ball for the Colonials and first pitch is scheduled for a 12:00 p.m.
