ROCKY RIVER --  LW continued their brutal dismantling of the opposition in their third rout in less than 24 hours.  After smacking Brooklyn to the tune of 16-1 Friday afternoon and Cleveland Central Catholic 19-0 in game one of a double header at 11 o’clock on Saturday morning, LW turned the hat-trick Saturday afternoon defeating CCC 25-7 in game two.  

It was the same story as in the first game.  LW scored early and often, and quickly put the Ironmen away.  LW scored eight runs on seven hits in the first inning to open up an 8-1 lead.  When CCC closed the gap to 8-6 after scoring five runs off of senior starter Sam Myers in the top of the second, LW responded with three of their own in the bottom.  Myers had the key hit in the inning with a two run double.  

Just in case anyone thought that the game was in doubt, LW scored 13 in the fourth to put the game away.  

In all, LW got hits from 11 different players, including three hits from senior Cal Thomay and freshman Eric Lewis.  Senior Mike Holick hit a grand slam, scored three runs, and collected eight RBI’s on the day.  Lewis also gathered three RBI’s as well.

In his first at-bat of the day, Thomay ripped a two-run RBI double to left.  Thomay set two marks with the hit.  First he broke the season RBI record previously held by both him and fellow senior Ryan Jones who had both knocked in 32 runs last year.  Thomay knocked in his 32 and 33 runs on the year with that hit.  Thomay also tied Ben Miller’s (class of 1998) 13 year old mark for most doubles in a year. Miller drilled ten doubles in 1997.  

Thomay, who still has two full weeks of baseball, finished the game by hammering a single and a triple (his fifth of the year) in his two subsequent at bats.  Thomay was named Chronicle Telegram player of the week last Thursday.
