St. Bonnies Sweeps Doubleheader From Baseball
Washington, D.C. (April 7, 2001) Two excellent pitching performances by St. Bonaventure led them to a sweep of GW this afternoon at McGraw-Jennings Field in St. Bonaventure, NY. The Bonnies won the first game 2-1 in eight innings and the second game 6-2.
In game one, junior Jason Baker (Accokeek, MD/ DeMatha) threw seven plus innings, but took the loss on an eighth inning single by St. Bonaventure first baseman Mike Tegeler. Baker allowed two runs on four hits while striking out six and walking one. He fell to 4-2 on the season.
The Colonials fell behind 1-0 in the third, but rallied to tie the game at 1 in the fifth. Sophomore Jake Wald (Alexandria, VA/ T.C. Williams) led off with a triple and came around to score on senior Tony Browns (Hockessin, DE/ A.I. DuPont) single to left center.
The game remained tied until the bottom of the eighth when St. Bonaventures Jim Wolf opened the inning with a double off of Baker and scored two batters later on Tegelers single.
In game two, the Bonnies jumped on GW starter Glen Skutnik (Lorton, VA/ Hayfield) early. They scored five runs in the first inning and never looked back as they cruised to a 6-2 victory.
GW closed the gap to 5-2 in the top of the third on a two run double by tri-captain Matt Krimmel (Schnecksville, PA/ Parkland), but the Colonials could not muster any more offense off of St. Bonaventure starter Kevin Niemczura, who allowed only five hits in six innings.
GW will look to capture the final game of this three-game series tomorrow afternoon at 12:00 p.m. The Colonials will send sophomore Greg Conden (Owego, NY/ Owego Free Academy) to the mound.
