ROCKY RIVER --  LW wasted a Houdini-esque effort from junior Jake Dersi, falling to Columbia 7-0 last night.  With the loss LW drops to 6-10 overall, 4-7 in conference, and 0-4 at home on the year.  Their last chance to win a game at home is currently scheduled for next Tuesday when they face Oberlin who they beat Monday 12-2.  

Dersi escaped major damage in the first.  After a leadoff flyout, Columbia gathered four hits in the next five batters, but only scored one. Dersi struck out the final batter of the inning with the bases loaded.  In the third, he got the first two outs then gave up a pair of singles before coaxing a groundout to end the inning.   

In the fourth inning, though, his defense let him down and he couldn’t pitch around it.  A leadoff error on a ground ball to short followed by two singles and a throwing error scored Columbia’s second run of the game.  Two more groundouts—ones that should have ended the inning with only one run in—scored runs two and three of the inning.  

Offensively LW did nothing to help Dersi.  LW never managed to get two runners on base in the same inning, and only once did they have a runner reach second.  The team totaled only four hits—three of which came from sophomore Eric Lewis, who never made it past first on any of his three times on base.   Columbia gave LW nothing free walking one and committing no errors in the game.
