Baltimore, Md. – The UMBC Retrievers (10-26, 3-6 AE) dropped a 5-0 decision to the George Washington Colonials (29-14, 12-3 Atlantic-10) in non-conference baseball action on Thursday night at The Baseball Factory Field at UMBC. The Retrievers tallied seven hits in the game but managed just one in the final five innings.

The Colonials held a 2-0 lead until tallying two more runs in the top of the fifth as Bo Sauter gave up a two-run homerun to Tom Shanley, his fourth of the season.
Geoff Milsom’s RBI single up the middle in the sixth capped off the scoring for the Colonials as they scored five runs on 11 hits.
Bernie Zaworski was the only Retriever with a multi-hit game, going 2-fo-4 from the plate with a double and single. Dan Carpenter, Zach Clark, Kevin Brooks, Jon Gossard and Mike Scheffel all had one hit on the day.
The Colonials threw six hurlers in the game as starter Dan Gramolini went the first 4.0 innings allowing six hits and no runs. He garnered his first decision of the year to move to 1-0.
Johnson falls to 0-1 on the season for the Retrievers who head to Northeastern this weekend for a crucial America East three-game series. The Retrievers trail the Huskies by two games for the final playoff berth in the conference tournament.
