Baseball Falls At James Madison
Washington, D.C. (Feb. 20) - Sophomore right-hander Chris Cochran scattered seven hits and struck out six Colonials in 72/3 innings to lead James Madison to a 4-2 victory over GW on Tuesday, February 20 at Long/Mauck Stadium. The loss brings the Colonials record to 1-3 on this young season.
The Colonials fell behind 1-0 in the third inning when James Madison centerfielder Greg Miller singled in second baseman Mitch Rigs. The run was the only one given up by junior lefthander Mike OConnor (Ellicott City, MD/ Mt. St. Josephs), who went four innings in his first start of the year.
In the top of the fourth, GW answered when junior Mike Bassett (Paramus, NJ/ Paramus) doubled to right center and came around to score on senior Ross Smirnes (Fleetville, PA/ Lackawanna Trail) single to right. Sophomore Tony Dokoupil (Severna Park, MD/ Severna Park) followed with a double down the left field line advancing Smirne to third. Smirne later scored on a balk by JMU starter Chris Cochran.
GW held the lead until JMU rallied for two runs in the seventh on a bases loaded walk, one of 11 given up by GW, and a sacrifice fly. The Dukes tacked on another run in the eighth on shortstop Nathan Doyles single to take a 4-2 lead.
The Colonials had a chance in the ninth as Bassett drew a leadoff walk bringing the tying run to the plate. However, James Madisons Brent Metheny retired all three GW batters he faced to get the save.
GW returns to action on Friday, February 23 at 4:00 p.m. when they play the
fifth game of a seven game roadtrip against the University of Charlotte.
