Colonials To Meet Dayton Friday Afternoon in Double Elimination Tournament
May 26, 2005
DAYTON, OH - George Washington University (39-18) starter RHP Derrik Lutz (Grantville, PA / Lower Dauphin) (8-1) was roughed up for six earned runs on six hits and five walks in 5.2 innings as the Colonials fell to the University of Richmond, 10-3, in the second day of the Atlantic 10 Tournament Thursday afternoon at Fifth Third Field.
GW will play Dayton, who defeated Duquesne Thursday night, on Friday at 3:30 pm in the double elimination tournament.
The Spiders (21-33) led 1-0 through four innings until posting three runs in both the fifth and sixth innings to jump out to a 7-1 lead after five and a half innings.
First baseman Joe Mahoney put UR on top 2-0 with RBI hits in the first and fifth innings.
Right fielder Andrew Justice made it 4-0 when he followed Mahoney's fifth inning RBI single with a two-run home run.
The Colonials got on the board in the bottom half of the fifth inning when third baseman Geoff Milsom (New York, NY / Notre Dame) singled home catcher Joe Michalski (Ellicott City, MD / Mt. Hebron) to set the score at 4-1.
Milsom went 3-for-5 with an RBI in the game.
The Spiders loaded the bases with one out in the top of the sixth and used a RBI walk from centerfielder Ben Zeskind, a GW fielding error and a fielder's choice to take a six-run advantage.
Zeskind walked three times and scored twice in the contest.
Centerfielder Matt Owens (Fayetteville, GA / Fayette County) brought the Colonials to 7-3 when he followed designated hitter Tom Shanley's (Stanfordville, NY / Pine Plains) two-out double with a home run (6).
UR leftfielder Ryan Metzroth doubled and came around to score in the seventh inning to make the game 8-3. The Spiders added two more in the ninth for the 10-3 victory.
The loss for Lutz is his first this season.
Spiders' starter RHP Stephen Owens (5-2) was solid in his six innings of work, allowing three runs on seven hits for the win.
