May 5, 2002
PITTSBURGH, PA - The Colonials sailed by the Duquesne University Dukes, 16-4, Sunday in the final game of their Atlantic 10 three-game series. Confident Colonials' batting and pitching marked the game. GW is now 35-16 overall and 16-5 in the A-10, while the Dukes are now 24-22 for the season and 10-11 in the conference.
The Colonials started off the game with three quick runs in the top of the first, the first two on a home run by senior tri-captain Matt Krimmel (Schnecksville, PA/Parkland). Sophomore Jeff Fertitta (Baltimore, MD/Loyola Blakefield) later doubled to score senior Mike Bassett (Paramus, NJ/Paramus), who had singled. Duquesne responded in the bottom of the first with a run, scored on an RBI single by Sean Wilson. GW's largest run producing inning came in the top of the third with seven runs. After senior Travis Crowder (Manassas, VA/Osbourn) and then junior Jake Wald (Alexandria, VA/T.C. Williams) scored on wild pitches, senior Mike Bassett (Paramus, NJ/Paramus) doubled to drive in Krimmel, who had walked. Bassett scored on an RBI single by Joe Michalski (Ellicott City, MD/Mt. Hebron). Senior Tony Brown (Hockessin, DE/A.I.DuPont) followed with a three-run homer. The Colonials added another run in the top of the fourth to lead 11-1. The Dukes managed one run in the bottom of the fourth on a sacrifice fly to left field by Jason Startari. In the top of the sixth, GW scored another run and then three more in the seventh. Michalski stroked a two-RBI single to score Fertitta and junior tri-captain Chris Barry (Orchard Park, NY/Canisius), followed by an RBI single by freshman Nick Koken (Basking Ridge, NJ/Immaculata). The Dukes scored two runs in the bottom of the eighth inning on a single by Jim Onder. Wald scored the Colonials' final run in the top of the ninth on a single. Junior righthander Greg Conden (Owego, NY/Owego) earned his ninth win after pitching six innings and allowing two runs and seven hits, while striking out six.
The Colonials will host Towson on Tuesday, May 7, at Barcroft Park. The game will begin at 3:00 p.m.
