ROCKY RIVER --  Everything about the game was ugly.  The weather was ugly, the pitching was ugly, the hitting was ugly.  The turf looked pretty good, but that was about it.

After an hour and twenty minute rain delay, Lutheran West struggled to do much right and lost to Firelands 7-0 in a five inning-darkness shortened conference game yesterday.  Junior Greg Kunze (1-1) got the start and took the loss despite a bizarre stat line.  Kunze allowed seven runs on one hit.  He walked seven, hit another batter and struck out eight.  His defense didn’t help him a whole lot, committing three errors that led to five unearned runs. 

Offensively, LW wasn’t doing a whole lot either.  Sophomore Nick Gambetta, junior Derek Naim, and sophomore Sam Jakabcic had the only hits for the Longhorns.  

Firelands took control in the second.  Two walks and a single loaded the bases with no one out.  After Kunze struck out the next hitter, fans thought that he had gotten out of the jam when he coaxed a groundball back to him that had double play written all over it.  Unfortunately, he juggled the ball and then threw it past junior catcher Derek Naim and managed to get no one out.  After he walked in a run and got a sacrifice fly for the second out, two more runs scored when junior first baseman Eric Szczepinski dropped a pop up that would have been the third out.
