The GW baseball team came into this weekend’s series against the St. Bonaventure Bonnies starting off on the right foot and ending up on a sour note. After a tough loss to the College of William and Mary Tuesday, the Colonials looked to extend their four-game Atlantic 10 Conference win streak. Despite winning the first game 10-2, the Colonials dropped the next two 5-4 and 5-3.
Senior Derrik Lutz struck out 12 hitters – a career-high – allowed three hits and no earned runs in eight innings in the first game. Sophomore Charlie Kruer had a leadoff homerun, his sixth of the season.
Due to a rainout, GW played two games on Saturday, with senior Josh Wilkie pitching in the first. The Bonnies jumped on Wilkie, scoring two in the second inning en route to four earned runs and giving up 11 hits.
Senior Dan Pfau took the mound in the second game, taking the loss in 4.2 innings.
The Colonials continue their road trip this week, playing at University of Maryland Baltimore County Tuesday, Georgetown Wednesday and beginning a three-game set in Philadelphia against the Temple Owls April 21.
