ST. BONAVENTURE, N.Y. - The George Washington baseball team twice erased one-run deficits to tie the score, but could not outlast St. Bonaventure and fell, 4-3, in Game 2 on Friday afternoon at Fred Handler Park.
The loss eliminates GW (19-30, 11-15 A-10) from postseason contention after Fordham and Richmond solidified the final two spots in the Atlantic 10 Championship with victories across Thursday and Friday.
St. Bonaventure (12-29, 6-16 A-10) took a 1-0 lead in the bottom of the first inning on a sacrifice fly and extended its advantage to 2-0 on a run-scoring error in the fifth.
The Colonials responded by tying the score with two runs in the top of the sixth. Freshman Joey Bartosic led off with an infield single, stole second and scored on an RBI triple by freshman Andrew Selby.
Freshman Bobby Campbell followed with an RBI groundout to knot the score at 2-2.
The Bonnies responded with a sacrifice-bunt RBI in the bottom of the sixth to regain the lead at 3-2 before senior Owen Beightol doubled and scored on a fielding error to tie the game at 3-3 in the top of the eighth inning.
St. Bonaventure hit a solo home run to lead off the bottom of the eighth inning and went on to clinch the 4-3 victory with a scoreless top of the ninth.
Bartosic finished 2-for-5 with one run and one stolen base while Selby was 2-for-3 with one run, one triple and one RBI.
GW will conclude its regular season in the series finale on Saturday afternoon. First pitch is scheduled for 12 p.m.
