GW Rolls to 6-4 Win at Mason
Freshman Frazier Improves to 7-0 with Strong Performance
May 10, 2005
FAIRFAX, VA - The George Washington University baseball team (33-16) ran its record against the Colonial Athletic Association this season to a perfect 10-0 with a 6-4 victory Tuesday afternoon over George Mason University (30-17) at Spuhler Field.
Freshman RHP Brian Frazier (Allentown, PA / Emmaus) improved to 7-0 with seven strikeouts and three earned runs in seven innings.
Seven Colonials recorded a base hit including first baseman Ryan Roberson (Silver Spring, MD / James H. Blake) who went 2-for-4 with two doubles and increased his Atlantic 10 leading batting average to .417.
GW got on the scoreboard early when centerfielder Matt Owens (Fayetteville, GA / Fayette County) singled with one out in the third inning, went to second on an errant pickoff attempt and scored on a second error on catcher Joe Michalski's (Ellicott City, MD / Mt. Hebron) groundball.
The Patriots responded in the bottom of the frame when centerfielder Matt Cooksey drew a two-out walk, stole second and scored on first baseman Chris Looze's RBI single to right. Looze stole second on the first pitch to left fielder Adam Innerst and scored when Innerst doubled on the very next pitch.
The Colonials quickly retook the lead when Roberson doubled with one out in the fourth and scored on a single by left fielder Josh Goldberg (Albany, NY / Albany Academy). Goldberg went to second on the throw and subsequently scored on a single by shortstop Michael Parker (Newton, MA / Newton South), making it 3-2. Right fielder Mickey Shupin's (Sea Girt, NJ / Wall) single to right brought home Parker to give the Colonials a two-run lead.
GW added to their lead in the fifth when a lead-off double from designated hitter Brad Rosenblat (New Orleans, LA / Tulane / Newman) in the fifth and third baseman Geoff Milsom (New York, NY / Notre Dame / Poly Prep) followed with a double to make it 5-2. After a ground out, Roberson doubled again to deep left-center to make it 6-2, ending the day for Mason starter Josh Morrison (5-3) - who suffered the defeat.
Mason got a run back in the bottom of the sixth when Innerst reached on an error to lead off the inning and designated hitter Casey Slattery walked to put runners on first and second. Catcher Robby Jacobsen's fly out to right moved Innerst to third and he scored on a two-out single to right by shortstop Tyler Youngs.
In the bottom of the eighth, Mason pulled to within two as Innerst led off the inning with a double, went to third on a wild pitch and scored on pinch hitter Matt Barrett's ground out.
Reliever LHP Avi Rasokwsky (Glenmont, NJ / Bethlehem Central) and RHP Joel Brookens (Fayetteville, GA / Gettysburg Area) (S, 5) threw a scoreless eighth and ninth innings, respectively, to solidify the win.
GW's 2005 CAA dominance includes home-and-home wins over Mason, Old Dominion, James Madison, Delaware and Towson.
The Colonials host La Salle University for their final home series this weekend. The first game of the three-game set is scheduled for Friday at 5:00 pm. -GW-
