ROCKY RIVER --  Lutheran West took care of business earlier tonight, knocking off a much improved Oberlin club without so much as breaking a sweat 10-0. The game went three batters into the fifth inning before LW accumulated the necessary ten runs to end the game via the mercy rule.
Never was the game in doubt as LW scored three in the first, one in the second, and five in the third before pulling many of their starters.  Only once did Oberlin get a runner past second base, and then only for three pitches before the inning ended. 

The only fireworks came off the bat of senior Cal Thomay.  Thomay blasted long fly balls to center in his first two at bats in a bid to set the record for most doubles in a season.  Thomay, who was tied with Ben Miller (class of 1998) for the most doubles in a season at the start of the day at 10, didn’t even get a base hit for his two shots since the Oberlin centerfielder was playing about 15 feet in front of the greenhouse.  Thomay wouldn't give in however, and drilled a two out, two run double to left center in the third to break the record.  

Thomay wasn’t done.  In the fifth with sophomore Jake Dersi on first and LW up 9-0 and needing only one run to end the game, Thomay pounded the 2-2 pitch into left field for an RBI double to finish the game.
