Baseball Comes Up One Short Against No. 14 Richmond Losing 3-2 In Game Two
Greg Conden Pitched A Complete Game And Chris Barry Hit Two
May 2, 2003
RICHMOND, VA - The Colonials lost the nightcap to No. 14 Richmond coming up just one run short in a 3-2 loss. Senior Greg Conden (6-4) pitched his 12th career complete game and did not allow a run after the second inning. Chris Barry hit a double and a single and had an RBI. GW drops to .500 in the Atlantic 10 after having won six straight A-10 games previous to the Richmond series.
Conden gave up three runs on seven hits and striking out three and walking only one. The Colonials scored in the second and fourth innings but came up just short of tying the game. With one out, Ryan Roberson started things off with a single in GW's final at bat of the game. Barry then advanced him to third with single to rightfield. Brad Rosenblat came up with two on and one out with the tying run only 90 feet away. With a hit and run on, Rosenblat grounded to the pitcher who threw quickly to home where the catcher tagged out Roberson to preserve the lead. The game would end on a strikeout with the Colonials just one run shy of forcing extra innings again.
Pritz led off the first with double to left field. Reaver sent Pritz to third and Zeskind scored the centerfielder on an error on a sacrifice bunt. George Washington responded, adding a run on a Barry double. Richmond did not rest, adding two more in its half of the second frame for a 3-1 advantage. Chiaravalloti drew a walk and advanced to second and third on wild pitches. Tidball then reached first after being hit by Colonial pitcher Conden. With two-outs, second baseman Bobby LeNoir hit a triple to send Chiaravalloti and Tidball home for the lead. In the fourth inning, George Washington added a run on Roberson groundout double play.
Richmond's Jason Bolinski improved to a perfect 8-0 in his fourth complete game. He struck out eight while allowing only four hits. Conden (6-4) took the loss and is tied for seventh with 12 career shutouts. The senior is 34-14 all-time and has 263 career strikeouts.
GW will conclude this critical A-10 series with Richmond on Saturday at Pitt Field with a 1:00 PM start time. The statistics for this game can be viewed live online at GWsports.com. Xavier and Duquesne split games in other A-10 action on Friday. The Colonials drop behind Temple for the sixth slot overall in the conference.
