GW Baseball Drops Series Opener at VCU, 4-2
Campbell Drives in Two but Rams Hold Off Colonials
May 2, 2014
RICHMOND, Va. - Freshman Bobby Campbell led the Colonials with a pair of hits and two RBIs but the George Washington baseball team fell to VCU, 4-2, on Friday evening at The Diamond.
After a scoreless first two innings, GW (14-28, 6-13 A-10) scored twice in the third to take a 2-0 lead.
Freshman Joey Bartosic drew a two-out four-pitch walk before stealing both second and third base. Freshman Colin Gibbons-Fly followed with a walk to put runners on the corners and Campbell came through with a two-run double to the gap in left-center field to put GW on top, 2-0.
VCU (31-11, 12-5 A-10) responded in the bottom half of the inning, scoring all four of its runs on five hits off GW starter Aaron Weisberg, who took the loss after allowing four runs on nine hits in seven innings of work.
GW threatened twice in the later innings, first with a runner on second and two outs in the fifth when Campbell lifted a long fly ball to deep left field. However, an acrobatic catch by VCU's left fielder ended the inning.
The Colonials got consecutive two-out singles from Bartosic and freshman Eli Kashi in the seventh inning but were unable to take advantage of the opportunity as VCU's Heath Dwyer thwarted the threat en route to a complete game victory.
GW and VCU will play the middle game of the three-game series on Saturday afternoon at 6 p.m.
