Baseball split its doubleheader with Davidson Saturday but dropped Sunday’s game to lose the series.
GW took the first win against George Mason in a doubleheader Wednesday but could not carry the momentum into the second game.
With the Colonials’ (16-12, 2-4 A-10) pitching staff struggling with injuries sidelining their staff ace and two throwers, the team has turned to its bullpen.
GW gave up 34 hits to Saint Joseph’s across the three-game series and went through at least four pitchers per contest on the weekend.
Head coach Barry King said the recent results showed GW’s need to reduce turnovers and brush up on execution before entering the thick of CWPA play.
Men’s and women’s basketball won exactly 19 games between both programs this season, the fewest combined wins for the Colonials since 1989.
The Colonials struggled against the Rams on the mound over the weekend, giving up a combined 28 runs across three games.
The Colonials picked up 30 points in the final 20 minutes of play after being held to 18 points in the first half but could not complete the comeback.
The Colonials’ 195.325 team score marks GW’s third consecutive meet finishing with at least 195 points.
The Colonials, who are 0-3 on the year, had strong showings on the mound but have room to grow at the plate and on defense.
