WASHINGTON - The George Washington baseball team heads into the final stretch of the 2013 season with a road trip to Dayton for a critical three-game Atlantic 10 series beginning Friday at 3:00 p.m. at Woerner Field.
The Colonials are currently in ninth-place in the A-10 standings and still have three-game sets against VCU (May 10-12) and La Salle (May 16-18) after this weekend.
GW (17-29, 7-8 Atlantic 10) concluded its non-conference schedule with a 5-2 win over Navy on Wednesday in Annapolis, Md. Freshman Jacob Williams earned his first collegiate win and the bullpen combined for 3.1 innings of scoreless relief to end Navy's seven-game win streak.
Senior Justin Albright leads the offense with a .290 batting average, including team-bests in hits (47), doubles (9) and steals (19). The Thurmont, Md., native has reached base safely in 13 consecutive games and ranks second on the team with 11 multiple-hit games.
Dayton (9-31-1, 3-15 A-10) enters the weekend with a .227 team batting average and a 5.59 ERA. Noah Buettgen anchors the weekend rotation with a 2.97 ERA and 47 strikeouts in 11 starts, while Aaron Huesman leads the offense with a .312 batting average and 20 RBIs.
The Colonials lead the all-time series over Dayton, 33-15. The teams last met during the 2011 season when Dayton won two-of-three at Barcroft Park.
