RICHMOND, Va. - Senior Owen Beightol totaled three hits and sophomore Jacob Williams pitched eight innings but it was not enough as the George Washington baseball team fell, 4-2, at VCU in game two on Saturday evening at The Diamond.
A costly one-out error in the bottom of the first inning allowed VCU (31-11, 13-5 A-10) to plate two runs and build a 2-0 lead.
GW (14-29, 6-14 A-10) cut the deficit in half with a run in the top of the third when freshman Eli Kashi hit a one-out single, advanced to second on an error and scored on a base hit by classmate Colin Gibbons-Fly, making the score 2-1.
Williams escaped a jam in the bottom of the third, stranding two runners on base, but the Rams retaliated with a RBI single and run-scoring double in the fourth to extend the lead to 4-1.
Freshman Joey Bartosic got GW within two runs of the lead in the sixth inning when he led off with a single, stole second and advanced to third on an error before scoring on a sacrifice fly by freshman Bobby Campbell.
The Colonials threatened again in the ninth with a pair of hits but VCU's JoJo Howie erased escaped the jam and earned the complete-game victory.
Williams took the loss after allowing four runs (three earned) on nine hits with three walks and three strikeouts in eight innings of work.
Beightol finished 3-for-4 at the plate to lead GW's offense.
The Colonials and Rams will conclude their series on Sunday afternoon. First pitch is scheduled for 1:00 p.m.
