GW Baseball Falls 1-0 to W&M in Lightning-Shortened Game
Colonials Close Season at UMass, Thurs-Sat
May 15, 2012
ARLINGTON, Va. - Junior J.T. Wauford turned in seven strong innings but the George Washington baseball team lost a lightning-shortened game, 1-0, to visiting William & Mary on Tuesday night at Barcroft Park.
Wauford found himself in a pitcher's duel with W&M's Jason Ighram, who fanned nine GW batters while allowing four hits in seven shutout innings.
Wauford countered by striking out two, forcing nine fly-ball outs and nine groundouts in seven innings. He allowed four hits and his only blemish was allowing a run in the seventh inning.
In the seventh, a leadoff single followed by a sacrifice bunt put a runner on second with one out. Kevin Nutter floated a shallow single to left that advanced the runner to third. Ryan Lindemuth then came to the plate and nearly hit into a double play, but instead scored the runner from third on a fielder's choice for the game-winning run.
The Colonials had four hits on the evening but stranded a runner on third in the fourth inning after a double from sophomore Owen Beightol and a single from freshman Grant Brown. Junior Justin Albright finished 2-for-3 from the leadoff spot.
GW (20-32) concludes the 2012 season this weekend with a visit to Massachusetts. The series runs Thurs.-Sat. with the Colonials' seven seniors arriving back to D.C. for Sunday's Commencement on the National Mall.
