Baseball Hosts Monmouth in First Home Series this Weekend
Colonials off to 2-0 start at home after midweek wins over Georgetown and MDES
SCHEDULE ALERT: Friday's game has been postponed due to dangerous wind conditions. There will now be a doubleheader on Sunday beginning at 11:30 a.m.
LEADING OFF: The George Washington baseball team will continue its current seven-game homestand when it hosts the first home series of the season with a three-game set against Monmouth this weekend at Tucker Field at Barcroft Park.
GOOD START: GW is off to a 2-0 start in the homestand thanks to midweek wins over Georgetown and Maryland Eastern Shore. With the two wins, GW has won three of the last four games after an 0-4 start to the season.
GAME-CHANGING DINGERS: The Colonials had momentum-swinging home runs in each midweek game this week. On Tuesday, senior Matt Cosentino's grand slam in the bottom of the seventh inning turned a 3-1 deficit into a 5-3 lead. GW added an insurance run an inning later for the final 6-3 margin.
On Wednesday, sophomore Nate Fassnacht broke a 1-1 tie in the bottom of the first inning with a two-run home run to give GW a lead it would never relinquish en route to the 8-3 victory over Maryland Eastern Shore.
RAMP IT UP, RAIMO: Sophomore Elliott Raimo already looks to be in midseason form after last weekend's brilliant start at Stetson. The righty struck out three without a walk and only two hits over eight shutout innings. He was perfect through three innings and did not allow a hit until the sixth.
Raimo sports a 1-1 record with a 2.70 ERA after his first two starts of the season and is limiting opponents to a .200 batting average.
TOP HITTERS: Senior Mark Osis and Robbie Metz are GW's leading hitters through the first eight games of the season. Osis tops the club and ranks 10th in the Atlantic 10 with a .382 batting average. He also has totaled a team-high five multiple-hit games.
Metz is batting .290 on the young season with two doubles and four RBI. He has also scored three runs.
SERIES HISTORY: GW won two of three games from the Hawks last season at The Tuck to improve its lead in the all-time series to 6-3.
