Baseball Sinks Navy, 3-2
Washington, D.C. (March 20, 2001) - Jason Baker (Accokeek, MD/ DeMatha) pitched eight innings of two hit ball and the Colonials were able to get just enough offense to defeat the Midshipmen of Navy, 3-2, on Tuesday, March 20 at Bishop Stadium.
Baker was outstanding in his fourth start of the year. The Atlantic 10 Pitcher of the Week gave up one run on two hits while striking out six and walking one. Baker lowered his ERA from 2.38 to 2.05. He now has 23 strikeouts and only four walks in 30.2 innings pitched this season.
The Colonials were able to break through off of Navy starter Rich McDevitt in the third. With redshirt senior Tony Brown (Hockessin, DE/ A.I. DuPont) on second and sophomore Jake Wald (Alexandria, VA/ T.C. Williams) on third, sophomore Tony Dokoupil (Severna Park, MD/ Severna Park) came through with a two run single to left to make it 2-0.
GW added to their lead in the fifth courtesy of Browns speed. Brown singled through the left side of the Navy infield and then stole second. The Midshipmen tried to pickoff Brown at second, but the pickoff attempt went into center field and Brown was able to score on the play.
Bryan Beggs (Somerset, PA/ Somerset Area) replaced Baker to start the bottom of the ninth with GW up 3-1. With one out, designated hitter Matt Foster reached on an error by Wald and moved to second when rightfielder Willie Gury walked. David Woolsey walked to load the bases for shortstop Jake Miller. On the first pitch, Miller flied to left field allowing Foster to tag up and score. With two outs and runners on first and second, Beggs struck out pinch hitter Rusty Hearn looking to end the game.
GW returns to action Wednesday when the Colonials face Mt. St. Marys at 3:00
