Baseball Falls to Towson, 6-5
Bassett Breaks Two More GW Career Records
May 7, 2002
ARLINGTON, VA - The Colonials fell to the Towson University Tigers, 6-5, Tuesday afternoon at Barcroft Park in 10 innings. GW's defense could not handle Towson's late surge to avenge two previous losses to the Colonials. GW is now 35-17 overall (16-5 A-10), while the Tigers improve to 21-25-1 (7-11 CAA).
Towson took an early lead, scoring one run in the top of the first on a homer over the left field wall by Brian McKenna. The Tigers added three more runs in the top of the third on a two-run homer by Gregg Davies and a solo home run by Scott Bacon. The Colonials responded in the bottom of the third with two runs. Senior Travis Crowder (Manassas, VA/Osbourn) blasted his third round-tripper of the season to right field. Senior tri-captain Matt Krimmel (Schnecksville, PA/ Parkland) later hit a sacrifice fly to score junior Jake Wald (Alexandria, VA/T.C. Williams), who had doubled to center field. GW added another run in the bottom of the fifth on senior Tony Brown's (Hockessin, DE/A.I. DuPont) shot through the left side to drive in freshman Joe Michalski (Ellicott City, MD/Mt. Hebron), who had singled. In the bottom of the sixth, Wald hit a solo-homer to left field to tie the score. The Colonials took a 5-4 lead in the bottom of the seventh on Wald's RBI single through the right side to score Brown. The score remained the same until the top of the ninth when the Tigers scored to tie the game. Davies bunted to score Joey Marcozzi. GW was unable to regain the lead in the bottom of the ninth, forcing the game into extra innings. Towson scored their sixth run in the tenth on a throwing error by pitcher Mike O'Connor (Ellicott City, MD/Mt. St. Joe's).
Tiger lefthander Geoff Kelowitz earned his first win of the season after pitching three innings and allowing only one hit.
Senior Mike Bassett (Paramus, NJ/ Paramus), who broke the GW career most hits record on Sunday at Duquesne, broke the GW career at-bats record this afternoon. In both cases, Bassett surpassed a record held by Ryan Dacey (1997-2000). Bassett has notched 269 hits and 794 at-bats in his career at GW. Dacey held both records for two years with 267 hits and 792 at-bats.
The Colonials will visit the University of Maryland Baltimore County Retrievers on Wednesday, May 8 for a single nine-inning game to begin at 3:00 p.m.
