GW Baseball Falls at Davidson, 6-5, in Snow-Shortened Game
Colonials and Wildcats Play Game Three on Sunday
Feb. 16, 2013
DAVIDSON, N.C. - Saturday's baseball game between George Washington and Davidson was called in the seventh inning due to blizzard conditions. The game is official per an NCAA rule.
Play was halted in the top of the seventh inning with Davidson (2-0) holding a 6-5 lead over GW (0-2). Rule 5-8-b in the NCAA Baseball rule book mandates that the score at the time of the postponement is now the official result.
The Colonials grabbed a 1-0 lead in the top of the first inning when senior Derek Brown drove in Justin Albright on a fielder's choice. Albright drew a one-out walk, stole second and advanced to third on a single by Owen Beightol before scoring.
GW extended the lead to 2-0 in the fourth inning on a RBI groundout by freshman Eric Kalman, but Davidson rallied in the bottom half of the inning with three runs to take a 3-2 lead.
The Wildcats added three runs in the sixth to extend the lead to 6-2 but the Colonials' offense came alive in the snow-shortened top half of the seventh inning.
Senior Tyler McCarthy lined a one-out double to left center field and scored when junior Brookes Townsend followed with a RBI single. Senior Ryan Hickey followed with a run-scoring base hit of his own to make the score 6-4. Hickey eventually scored following consecutive wild pitches.
Albright followed with a two-out walk before the game was called.
Junior Aaron Weisberg is scheduled to get the start in game three for the Colonials. First pitch is scheduled for 1:00 p.m. on Sunday at Wilson Field.
