Baseball Takes Two from Howard
Washington, D.C. (March 13, 2001) - GW extended their winning streak to six games after taking both games of a doubleheader from the Howard Bison this afternoon, March 13. The Colonials took the first game 9-0 and the second game 7-2.
In the first game, GW jumped out to an early 3-0 lead in the first inning off of Howard starter Mike Hughes. Sophomore Tony Dokoupil (Severna, MD/ Severna Park) walked to leadoff the inning, after sophomore Chris Barry (Orchard Park, NY/ Canisius) was hit by a pitch, junior Matt Krimmel (Schnecksville, PA/ Parkland) walked to load the bases. Senior Dan Rouhier (McLean, VA/ St. Albans) followed two batters later with a two-run double to left. Freshman Jeff Fertitta (Baltimore, MD/ Loyola Blakefield) knocked in the third run of the inning on an RBI groundout.
The Colonials added three more runs in the third inning and it was Rouhier who provided the big blow again. Krimmel singled to leadoff the inning. Junior Mike Bassett (Paramus, NJ/ Paramus) reached on a fielders choice to put runners at first and second and Rouhier followed with a deep blast to left field.
Rouhiers home run proved more than enough for GW starter Greg Conden (Owego, NY/ Owego Free Academy). Conden, the 2000 Atlantic 10 Pitcher and Rookie of the Year, pitched five scoreless innings to earn his first victory of the season.
After a 30 minute rain delay, the Colonials added three runs in the fifth inning on a Howard error and a two-run double by Dokoupil. Conden did not return after the delay and freshman Tony King (Ellicott City, MD/ Howard) pitched the final two innings to complete the shutout.
In the second game, Howard took a 2-0 lead in the second inning off of GW starter, David Rodriguez (Valley Stream, NY/ Long Island Lutheran). Rodriguez, making the first start of his GW career, gave up a leadoff home run to Howards Reggie Adams. Omar Shakoor followed Adams homer with a triple to right and two batters later he scored on a sacrifice fly by rightfielder David Durand.
GW took the lead in the bottom of the third with four runs on only two hits. Redshirt senior Tony Brown (Hockessin, DE/ A.I. Dupont) hit his first home run of the year to start the rally. After two walks and two Howard errors that put GW up 3-2, Fertitta hit a double to right which scored Bassett.
GW extended their lead with three more runs in the fifth. After a Fertitta groundout made it 5-2, senior Nick Iovacchini doubled to right scoring Dokoupil and Fertitta.
GW will look to extend their winning streak to seven games tomorrow, March 14,
as they make the short trip to Fairfax, VA to face the George Mason Patriots.
Junior Jason Baker (Accokeek, MD/ DeMatha) will get the start for the
