GW’s baseball team ran its winning streak to five games Sunday, sweeping a doubleheader at St. Bonaventure 9-2, 8-4. The Colonials (16-14, 5-3 Atlantic 10) were led on offense by the bat of sophomore centerfielder Brandon Kelliher, who homered twice in the first game and drove in a total of six runs on the afternoon. Also in game one, senior Pat Lehman allowed just one earned run in eight innings of work to improve to 4-1 on the season.
The Colonials split a pair of road contests over the weekend, beating Temple 9-4 Friday and falling 18-5 at Massachusetts Sunday to end their season-best three-game winning streak. Freshman Sarah Phillips sparked GW (4-9, 3-1 A-10) to victory over Temple with a pair of goals and trio of assists before scoring three more times in Sunday’s loss.
