ARLINGTON, Va. – Freshman Taylor Boyd’s seventh-inning double broke a 1-1 tie as the Saint Joseph’s baseball team beat George Washington, 3-1, at Barcroft Park on Saturday afternoon.  Daniel Thorpe improved to 3-0 on the year with the win.

George Washington (6-13 overall, 0-2 Atlantic 10) struck first, scoring on a first-inning balk by Thorpe.  Thorpe recovered to retire 13 of the next 14 hitters he faced, keeping the Colonials at bay.

The game remained 1-0 until the sixth, when the Hawks equalized on an RBI single by Brian O'Keefe.

Saint Joseph’s (10-6 overall, 2-0 Atlantic 10) took the lead in the seventh as Kevin Kratochwill led off with a walk and came in to score on Boyd’s double.  The Hawks extended the lead in the eighth, as Kratochwill’s bunt single scored Stefan Kancylarz, who led off with a double and advanced to third on a single by Tommy Cunningham.

Thorpe, Lansing Veeder, and Steven Schuler made the lead stand, as Thorpe allowed five hits – just three after the first inning – and fanned three in seven innings.  Veeder pitched a scoreless eighth before Schuler threw a perfect ninth for his second save of the season.  Aaron Weisberg took the loss for George Washington, allowing two runs on five hits in six-plus innings.

Cunningham and Kancylarz led the Hawks with two hits apiece, while Chris Hueth was aboard three times with a hit and two walks.

The Hawks will look for the sweep on Sunday afternoon at Barcroft Park.  First pitch is set for noon.
