GW Baseball to Visit No. 24 Virginia on Wednesday
Colonials Look to Avenge 2011 Loss to Then No. 1 Cavaliers
April 10, 2012
WASHINGTON - The George Washington baseball team will take a break from Atlantic 10 play to visit nationally ranked No. 24 Virginia of the ACC on Wednesday afternoon at Davenport Field. First pitch is scheduled for 6 p.m.
GW (12-19) has won six of its last nine games, but is coming off a 1-2 weekend at A-10 foe Rhode Island. Virginia (22-10-1) is currently ranked 24th in both the USA Today/ESPN Coaches and Baseball America Top 25 polls, and is coming off a sweep of ACC rival Wake Forest.
Over the past nine games, the Colonials pitching staff has sported a 2.68 ERA with 50 strikeouts. Sophomore Aaron Weisberg currently ranks second in the A-10 with a 1.54 ERA. He has allowed just eight earned runs in 46.2 innings and has limited opponents to a .210 batting average.
Junior J.T. Wauford is scheduled to start Wednesday's contest against the Cavaliers. Last week against Towson, Wauford allowed just two hits over eight shutout innings to earn his second win of the season in the Colonials' 9-1 win over the Tigers.
In last season's meeting, GW limited then-No. 1 Virginia, which entered that game averaging more than seven runs, to just two runs in a 2-0 loss. Cavaliers' starter Will Roberts silenced the Colonials with 10 strikeouts and the eighth nine-inning perfect game in NCAA history.
The Colonials will resume their A-10 schedule this weekend with a three-game series at Richmond.
