St. Joe's Solves Baker and Colonials
Washington, D.C. (March 25) - St. Joseph's starter Eric Wyatt scattered seven hits and held the Colonials to just two runs, as the Hawks salvaged the final game of a three-game series with GW, 5-2, on March 25.
Wyatt and GW starter Jason Baker (Accokeek, MD/ DeMatha) engaged in a pitcher's duel as both starters went seven plus innings and struck out three. Baker fell to 3-1 on the season while Wyatt improved to 3-1.
The Colonials fell behind 2-0 in the first inning as the Hawks got to Baker early. The Hawks scored their runs on an RBI single by second baseman Kevin Kirkby and on an RBI fielder's choice by catcher Jim Reilly.
GW got on the board against Wyatt in the fifth. Sophomore Chris Barry (Orchard Park, NY/ Canisius) ledoff with a double and came around to score on an RBI single by freshman Jeff Fertitta (Baltimore, MD/ Loyola Blakefield).
St. Joe's got a run in the sixth as a sacrifice bunt by Reilly ended up down the rightfield line on an errant throw. The Hawks added another run in the seventh to take a 4-1 lead.
Junior Mike Bassett (Paramus, NJ/ Paramus) homered to right center in the eighth to cut the St. Joe's lead to 4-2, but it was not enough as the Hawks added a run in the bottom of the eighth and then shut GW down in the ninth to salvage the final game of the weekend. GW fell to 12-9 overall and 2-1 in the Atlantic 10.
The Colonials return to action on Tuesday, March 27, against Georgetown. The
doubleheader will begin at 1:30 at Shirley Povich Field.
