The Colonials faced No. 19 Virginia Wednesday afternoon, falling 11-0 after holding the Cavaliers scoreless over the first three innings.

Freshman Max Kaplow took the mound first for GW (0-6), allowing just one hit through the first three innings of play. But the Colonial offense couldn’t back him up, stranding runners on first and third in the second.

Kaplow left the game after Virginia tallied four runs on four hits in the fourth inning, and juniors Aaron Weisberg and Craig Lejeune combined in the relief effort. The Cavaliers scored seven runs over the final three innings to clinch their victory.

GW will unveil the renovated Barcroft Park Saturday morning, ahead of its game against Quinnipiac.
