Baseball Finishes Off Dukes, 14-7
Colonials sweep Duquesne to go to 5-1 in Atlantic 10
Washington, D.C. (April 1) - Sophomore Greg Conden (Owego, NY/ Owego Free Academy) pitched six innings of five-hit ball and junior tri-captain Matt Krimmel (Schnecksville, PA/ Parkland) had five RBIs to lead GW to a 14-7 victory over Duquesne April 1 at Barcroft Park. The three-game sweep improves the Colonials record to 17-10 overall and 5-1 in the Atlantic 10. The Dukes fell to 8-13 overall and 0-3 in the Atlantic 10.
With GW trailing 3-1 in the bottom of the third, Krimmel hit a towering three-run home run to right field to put the Colonials up to stay, 4-3. Krimmels blast seemed to spark the rest of the lineup as the Colonials poured it on from there.
GW tacked on four more runs in the fourth and, again, Krimmel had the big hit of the inning. After two Duquesne pitchers combined to walk the bases loaded, Krimmel hit a single up the middle to score redshirt sophomore Travis Crowder (Manassas, VA/ Osbourn) and sophomore Jake Wald (Alexandria, VA/ T.C. Williams) to give GW a 7-3 lead. After an RBI groundout by junior Mike Bassett (Paramus, NJ/ Paramus) scored sophomore Tony Dokoupil (Severna Park, MD/ Severna Park) to put the Colonials up 8-3, senior tri-captain Dan Rouhier (McLean, VA/ St. Albans) tripled of off the left field wall to score Bassett and make it 9-3.
Duquesne scored two runs in the sixth to cut the lead to 9-5, but GW answered with two runs in the bottom of the inning and three more runs in the seventh to take total control.
Conden pitched one of his best games of the year to improve to 3-3 on the season. The 2000 Atlantic 10 Pitcher and Rookie of the Year allowed three earned runs, struck out five and walked three. Conden was relieved by senior tri-captain Bryan Beggs (Somerset, PA/ Somerset) who pitched the final three innings to earn his sixth save of the season.
The Colonials return to action on Tuesday, April 3, as they travel to
Emmitsburg, MD to face Mount St. Marys beginning at 3:00 p.m.
