Baseball Defeats George Mason, 12-4
April 21, 1998
COLLEGE PARK, Md. Maryland catcher Scott Bronowicz went 4-5 at the plate with two home runs, a double and five RBI to lead the Terps to a 12-4 win over George Mason this evening at Shipley Field. With the win, the Terps improve to 19-22-1 overall, while the Patriots fall to 17-22.
George Mason scored two runs in the top of the first inning off Maryland starter Brandon Agamennone, as Greg Filson hit his sixth homer of the season with Eddie Jordan on base. Agamennone then settled down and held the Patriot bats in check for the next six innings, not allowing another hit. Agamennone was relieved in the eighth inning after allowing just two runs on two hits while striking out 11 batters.
Bronowiczs two home runs were complimented by J.R. Thomas solo shot in the fourth inning, his fourth of the season. Chris Blue and Casey Trout recorded two hits apiece as the Terps banged out 13 for the game.
George Mason scored its two other runs in the top of the eighth inning with three consecutive hits, including doubles by Lee Kansteiner and Filson.
The Terps will next be in action on Wednesday, April 22, against UM-Eastern Shore. The game was scheduled as a doubleheader but has been changed to a single nine-inning game. First pitch will be at 5:00 p.m.
