Baseball Falls in Opener to Saint Joseph's
Colonials aim to even series on Friday (1pm)
ARLINGTON, Va. - The George Washington baseball team trailed 2-0 after four innings before a six-run top half of the fifth for visiting Saint Joseph's broke the game open. The Hawks prevailed in the series opener, 11-3, on Thursday afternoon at Tucker Field at Barcroft Park.
A first-inning sacrifice fly and a dropped pop fly in the fourth resulted in an early 2-0 lead for the visitors before the Hawks plated six runs on three hits and a pair of bases-loaded walks in the top of the fifth to extend the lead to 8-0.
Another fielding error, along with a sacrifice fly in the sixth, put the Colonials behind 10-0.
Seniors Joey Bartosic and Andrew Selby both drove in runs in the top half of the seventh to avoid the shutout, making the score 10-2. In the eighth, junior Brandon Chapman's RBI single made the deficit 10-3.
The Hawks added an insurance run in the top of the ninth en route to the win.
Bartosic finished the day 3-for-4 at the plate but Saint Joseph's Tim Brennan earned the win after allowing two runs on six hits in seven innings of work.
GW aims to even the series in Friday's middle game. First pitch is set for 12:30 p.m. at Tucker Field.
