Baseball Completes Sweep Of St. Peter's
Washington, D.C. (March 11, 2001) - Junior Chris Worth (North Arlington, NJ/ N. Arlington) pitched six solid innings and tri-captain Matt Krimmel (Schnecksville, PA/Parkland) led the way on offense as the Colonials defeated St. Peters, 11-3, Sunday afternoon at Barcroft Park. The Colonials have now won four in a row after starting the season 1-6.
GW got started in the second by scoring four runs. The first two runs were scored on a fielders choice and sacrifice fly. With redshirt sophomore Travis Crowder (Manassas, VA/ Osbourn) on second, Krimmel stepped to the plate and launched a home run to right field to get the offensive barrage started.
St. Peters answered with two runs in the top of the third on a two run single by leftfielder Nick Edwards to cut the GW lead to 4-2. The Peacocks added another run in the top of the fourth on an RBI single by second baseman Jimmy Brown to cut the Colonial lead to one, but that is as close as they would get.
The Colonials responded by scoring three in the bottom of the fourth to take a 7-3 lead. Sophomore Jake Wald (Alexandria, VA/ T.C. Williams) got the inning started with a single to center. Redshirt junior Tony Brown (Hockessin, DE/ A.I. Dupont) followed with another single to put runners on first and third. Crowder added another single to score Wald, making it 5-3. Krimmel then got his third and fourth RBIs of the day by getting the fourth straight single by a GW hitter.
GW blew the game open with a four run sixth. In that inning, junior Mike Bassett (Paramus, NJ/ Paramus) and senior Ross Smirne (Fleetville, PA/ Lackawanna Trail) delivered the key hits. Bassett had a run scoring single and Smirne hit a two-run double.
The offensive explosion was more than enough for Worth. After giving up the runs to St. Peters in the third and fourth innings he settled down and finished his outing with two hitless innings before turning it over to the bullpen. Relievers Tony King (Ellicott City, MD/ Howard), Mike OConnor (Ellicott City, MD/ Mt. St. Joes) and Bryan Beggs (Somerset, PA/ Washington Waldorf) provided three innings of scoreless relief to finish the game.
The Colonials return to Barcroft Park on Tuesday, March 13, to face the Howard
Bison. The doubleheader will begin at 1:30 p.m.
