Baseball Has Final Home Game Rained Out
May 5, 2009
Fairfax, Va. - The 27th-ranked George Mason baseball team had its contest with Rollins College canceled on Tuesday afternoon due to inclement weather. The Patriots and Tars had begun the contest as scheduled but when rain moved into the area in the fourth inning, the tarp came out and the decision was made to cancel the contest.
Scott Krieger had his 19th homer of the year washed away as no statistics will count from the game. Mason was trailing Rollins 4-1 when the weather entered the area. The game was the final home event for the Patriots in 2009. Mason finishes the year with a school record 25-2 home record.
Earlier in the day, news came that Justin Bour had been named NCBWA Player of the Week. The junior first baseman who was also the CAA Player of the Week batted .500 with three homers, nine runs and 14 RBI last week as Mason went 4-1.
Mason, which leads the nation in wins and winning percentage with a 38-9 record and an .809 winning percentage, will take a break for finals and return to the field on May 14 when the Patriots begin a three-game series at James Madison. The Patriots have already clinched first place in the CAA's regular season standings and will be the top seed in the CAA Tournament.
