NORFOLK, VA. (March 24) - George Mason stole a team-record ten bases in route to defeating Old Dominion, 9-5, March 24 at the Bud Metheny Baseball Complex. With the loss, the Monarchs fall to 12-12-1 on the year, 2-2 in the CAA, while the Patriots improve to 10-12-1, 1-0.

The Monarchs got on the board first, as Tim Hummel (Montgomery, NY) walked, stole second and then scored on Jared Musolf's (Lakehurst, NJ) single. George Mason got on the board in the second inning, scoring two unearned runs as Brian Forthofer and Scott Yeager each advanced on a throwing error by Monarch shortstop Tim Hummel and later scored.

Already ahead 4-1, the Patriots scored four runs in the top half of the sixth inning as Mark Gibbs scored on an Evan Howard single, while Howard and Mike Johnson scored on Greg Filson's triple into the gap in right center. Filson later scored to make it 8-1.

Old Dominion rallied to score two runs in the bottom of the sixth Ross Robertson (Chesapeake, VA) knocked in Joe Troilo (Avondale, PA) with a sac fly, Brent Sollenberger (Chambersburg, PA) doubled to drive in Jason Greiner (Wexford, PA). George Mason added an insurance run in the top of the seventh to go ahead 9-3.

Old Dominion again scored two in the bottom of the eighth, as Jesse Thomas (Ventnor, PA) and Greiner each scored, but the Monarchs could get no closer as the final was 9-5 in favor of the Pats.
