GW Baseball Falls in Series Opener at Massachusetts, 10-3
Teams Combine for 13 Runs, 24 Hits and Three Errors
May 17, 2012
AMHERST, Mass. - The George Washington baseball team opened its final series of the 2012 season with a 10-3 loss at Massachusetts on Thursday afternoon at Earl Lorden Field.
UMass (20-20, 12-10 A-10) took a 1-0 lead in the bottom of the first inning on a RBI single by Anthony Serino before adding four runs in the third inning to take a 5-0 lead. The Minuteman added to the advantage in the fifth inning by scoring a run on a throwing error during a sacrifice bunt sequence to push the lead to 6-0.
Senior Stephen Oswald cut the deficit in half on a towering three-run home run to right field in the sixth inning. Junior Justin Albright had doubled with one out and advanced to third on a single to right field by senior Ollie Mittag. Oswald then came to the plate and blasted a 1-0 pitch over the right field wall for his fourth home run of the season.
UMass responded by plating four runs in the bottom half of the sixth to extend the advantage to 10-3, which proved to be enough for starter Dennis Torres, who earned the victory with a complete-game performance. He fanned eight batters while surrendering only three runs on 10 hits.
GW (20-33, 6-16 A-10) and the Minutemen will meet in the middle game of the season-ending three-game set on Friday afternoon at 1 p.m. RHP Justin Albright (4-0, 3.29 ERA) will get the start for the Colonials against the Minutemen pitcher Joe Poielarczyk (5-1, 1.36 ERA).
