May 4, 2005
BETHESDA, MD - For the second straight day the Georgetown University (24-25) offense jumped all over George Washington University (30-15) early and often as the Colonials fell to the Hoyas 9-5 Wednesday evening at Shirley Povich Field.
GW trailed 9-0 in the ninth inning but was able to avoid its first shutout of the season with a five-run frame.
GU scored a run in the first inning and three in the second to take a 4-0 lead after two innings. The Hoyas added two more runs in the fourth inning and three more in the fifth to blow the game open 9-0.
Right fielder Bill Quinn and designated hitter Andrew Cleary, the Hoyas' third and fourth place hitters, went a combined 4-for-7 with two doubles, a triple, two runs scored and five RBIs in the contest.
GU starter RHP Mark Dutmers held the Colonials to just three hits through four innings but left the game early due to an injury. Relievers RHP Eddie Pena (4-5) and RHP Mike Halloran combined to finish off the final five innings.
LHP Avi Rasowsky (Glenmont, NY / Bethlehem Central) (2-2) was tagged for six runs on seven hits in 4.1 innings as he took the loss.
GW designated hitter Ryan Roberson (Silver Spring, MD / James H. Blake) raised his Atlantic 10 leading batting average to .414 with three hits in five at-bats.
The Colonials travel to Cincinnati, OH this weekend for a three-game A-10 series against Xavier. The teams will play a doubleheader Saturday, beginning at 12:00 pm, and a game on Sunday.
