Baseball Overwhelmed By Richmond, 10-5
Washington, D.C. (April 4, 2001) - The Richmond Spiders scored six runs in the first three innings, including three in the first, to take control from the beginning and they went on to defeat GW, 10-5, this afternoon at Barcroft Park. The Colonials fell to 18-11 on the year.
After getting the leadoff man out in the first, starter Chris Worth (North Arlington, NJ/ N. Arlington) allowed an RBI single later in the inning before giving up a two-run home run to Richmond first baseman Vito Chiaravalloti to make it 3-0.
The Spiders added another run in the second before scoring two more in the third to take a 6-0 lead. GW was able to get on the board in the bottom of the third when sophomore Jake Wald (Alexandria, VA/ T.C. Williams) scored on redshirt senior Tony Brown's (Hockessin, DE/ A.I. DuPont) single to right. Brown went 3 for 5 on the day with an RBI and a run scored.
The Colonial's continued their comeback in the fifth. After sophomore Chris Barry (Orchard Park, NY/ Canisius) scored to make it 6-2, junior Matt Krimmel (Schnecksville, PA/ Parkland) singled home Brown to make it 6-3. Krimmel had another good day at the plate, going 4 for 5 with the RBI. Krimmel leads the team with a .372 batting average and four home runs on the year.
The Colonials would get no closer as Richmond responded with three more runs in the sixth. The big blow of the inning came from Richmond's Chris Dolan, who hit a two-run home run off of GW reliever Mike O'Connor (Ellicott City, MD/ Mt. St. Joe's) to give the Spiders a 9-3 lead.
The Colonials were able to score two more runs in the seventh, but Richmond's Tim Stauffer came on to provide two and third innings of shutout relief to make sure the Spiders left with the victory.
