GW Offense Pulls Through
May 8, 2002
BALTIMORE, MD - The Colonials issued the University of Maryland, Baltimore County a 17-8 loss Wednesday afternoon at Alumni Field. GW's strong pitching was bolstered by their 14 hits and also benefited from nine walks. The Colonials improve to 36-17, while the Retrievers are now 28-20.
The Colonials scored four runs in the first inning, the first on a sacrifice fly by senior Matt Krimmel (Schnecksville, PA/Parkland). A double to right by freshman Anthony Raglani (Indiana, PA/Indiana) provided the big scoring opportunity in the frame, driving in three runs. GW added another run in the second on senior Tony Brown's (Hockessin, DE/A.I. DuPont) third homer of the season. UMBC scored a run in the bottom of the second inning to cut the lead to 5-1, however the Colonials scored four more runs in the fourth inning to grab a commanding 9-1 lead. Krimmel smacked a two-run homer to highlight the inning. The Retirevers managed to cut the lead by two in the bottom of the fourth on an RBI-double to right center field by Scott Kosmicky and a groundout RBI by Zach Clark. GW would regain their eight-run lead in the top of the fifth on a sacrifice fly by graduate student Nick Iovacchini (Asheville, NC/Asheville) and a bases loaded walk. In the top of the seventh, the Colonials stretched their lead to 11, scoring three runs on a fielder's choice and a two-run double to center field by senior Mike Bassett (Paramus, NJ/Paramus). Trailing 14-3 in the bottom of the seventh inning, UMBC scored five runs to climb within 14-8. Dan Carpenter recorded a two-run double in the inning. However, the Colonials scored three runs in the top of the ninth, including a solo homer by junior Jake Wald (Alexandria, VA/T.C. Williams) to add some insurance and take a 17-8 lead.
Freshman righthander Nick Koken (Basking Ridge, NJ/Immaculata) went 5.0 innings to improve to 2-0 on the season for the Colonials. Koken allowed six hits and three earned runs, while walking one and striking out seven batters.
The Colonials will host their final three-game Atlantic 10 Conference series before the Atlantic 10 Conference Tournament this weekend. Xavier will visit to play a doubleheader on Saturday, May 11, and a single game to complete the series on Sunday, May 12. Games will start at noon on both days at Barcroft Park.
