May 14, 2012
WASHINGTON - The George Washington baseball team will conclude its 2012 home schedule with a night game against William and Mary on Tuesday at Barcroft Park at 6 p.m.
GW (20-31, 6-15 A-10) won 2-of-3 games from A-10 rival Xavier at Barcroft Park this past weekend. Sophomore Owen Beigthol provided multiple hits in each game as he batted .583 on the week with three runs, one double, one home run and one RBI. His solo home run in the sixth inning of Friday's game propelled the Colonials to a 4-2 victory. Beightol leads the Colonials with a .318 batting average to go with five home runs, nine doubles and 19 RBIs. Senior Stephen Oswald owns an average of .303 to go with three home runs and 31 RBIs.
Junior Kenny O'Brien earned two saves over the weekend, as he allowed just one hit with four strikeouts in 4.2 innings of work. He pitched 3.2 innings while fanning three batters on Sunday to clinch the series win for the Colonials.
In the last meeting versus W&M, Oswald and classmate Brett Bowers combined for five hits, but the Colonials stranded a total of 12 base runners as they fell to the Tribe, 11-1, on March 7.
William and Mary (28-23, 11-16 CAA) enters Tuesday's game on a five-game losing streak and has lost seven of its last 10 contests. The Tribe is led by Ryan Lindemuth, who is batting .340 with four home runs, 14 steals and 39 RBIs. Kevin Nutter is batting .317 with 14 RBIs from the leadoff spot, and Tadd Bower is batting .313 with a team-high 17 doubles and 31 RBIs.
