The Matador bullpen was stellar, allowing one run in six innings.

Freshman pitcher Andrew Weston took home the victory as he allowed zero runs and only three hits in 3 2/3 innings.

Freshman pitcher Joey Deceglie got the save on two pitches to secure the CSUN sweep of the doubleheader.

After five innings, the Matadors trailed the Colonials 4-0 after GWU scored one run in the first inning then three runs in the fifth.

In the sixth inning, the Matadors were able to get on the board on an RBI double by sophomore catcher Albee Weiss to score senior outfielder Branden Berry. The senior got on with a single to make the score 4-1.

The Matadors scratched across two more runs to make the score 4-3 in the seventh.

Junior infielder Fred smith singled to score outfielder Bobby Schuman which was followed by a single by sophomore outfielder Justin Toerner that scored freshmen infielder Jose Ruiz.

Going into the ninth inning, the Matadors trailed the Colonials 5-4.

The Matadors tied the game on an RBI ground out by sophomore infielder Nolan Bumstead to score Toerner to knotting the game at five.

The Matadors sent the game into extra innings where Bumstead sent a sacrifice fly to score Toerner, giving the Matadors the 6-5 lead. In the bottom of the 11th inning, Weston and Deceglie held on for the Matadors’ win.
