Baseball Falls To Hofstra
Washington, D.C. (March 18, 2001) - Hofstra pounded out 13 hits off of three GW pitchers to defeat the Colonials, 9-6, this afternoon, March 18, at Barcroft Park.
After falling behind 4-0 in the first two innings, GW tried to make a comeback. In the second, sophomore Chris Barry (Orchard Park, NY/ Canisius) hit his second home run of the season to cut the Hofstra lead to 4-1.
The Colonials continued to cut into the lead in the bottom of the third. After sophomore Jake Wald (Alexandria, VA/ T.C. Williams) reached on a Hofstra error, sophomore Tony Dokoupil (Severna Park, MD/ Severna Park) singled him home to cut the Pride lead to 4-2.
Hofstra scored a run in the fourth to make it 5-2, but the Colonials would not go away. Senior Nick Iovacchini (Asheville, NC/ Asheville) got a two out single to center to make it 5-3.
Hofstra added two more runs in the fifth on a home run to left by catcher Kevin Reinking. The Colonials then answered with two runs in the bottom of the inning to make it 7-5. Senior Dan Rouhier (McLean, VA/ St. Albans) singled to left to score Dokoupil and a Hofstra error allowed junior Matt Krimmel (Schnecksville, PA/ Parkland) to score on the play as well.
The Colonials would get no closer as the teams traded runs in the sixth and Hofstra added one in the seventh to capture the final game of the three game series.
GW returns to the field on Tuesday, March 20, as they travel to Annapolis, MD
to face Navy beginning at 3:00 p.m.
