GW Senior Day Ends 4-0
May 12, 2002
ARLINGTON, VA - GW fell to the Xavier University Musketeers, 4-0, Sunday afternoon at Barcroft Park in the final game of their three-game series. The Colonials' Senior Day celebration did not end as hoped, as GW faced solid Xavier pitching. GW is now 37-19 overall and 17-7 in the A-10, while the Musketeers are now 26-25 for the season and 15-8 in the conference.
The Colonials were not able score against Xavier's four-man pitching lineup, while Xavier also struggled at the plate. The Musketeers scored their first run in the top of the third on an error by sophomore catcher Jeff Fertitta (Baltimore, MD/Loyola Blakefield). Xavier added three more runs in the top of the fifth on a home run to left field by Alec Moss off of senior righthander Chris Worth (North Arlington, NJ/North Arlington). Worth allowed just two earned runs and five hits in 4.1 innings of work. Musketeer Jarret Sues notched his seventh win of the year after pitching five innings and allowing three hits.
Seven GW seniors were honored Sunday, with Coach Tom Walter and GW Athletic Director Jack Kvancz making special presentations. Along with starting pitcher Worth, fellow-seniors Jason Baker (Accokeek, MD/DeMatha), Mike Bassett (Paramus, NJ/ Paramus), Tony Brown (Hockessin, DE/A.I.DuPont), Matt Krimmel (Schnecksville, PA/Parkland), Mike O'Connor (Ellicott City, MD/Mt. St. Joe's), and graduate student Nick Iovacchini (Asheville, NC/Ashevlle) were recognized for their hard work and dedication to the GW baseball program.
On Thursday, May 16 at 4:00 p.m. the Colonials begin their run as the third seed in the Atlantic 10 Baseball Tournament by first playing the sixth seed.
