OBERLIN --  The Lutheran West baseball team snapped a three-game losing streak with a 10-5 win versus the Oberlin Phoenix. Despite seven errors of their own, the Longhorns were able to both hit and take advantage of the Phoenix errors, scoring their ten runs.

Senior David Pierce was on the mound for the Longhorns. He pitched six stellar innings for the team, only allowing seven hits, five runs, and one walk. His strong performance helped the team to stay in control despite the fact that the defense behind him was not playing very cleanly.

West picked up the slack on defense with their performance on offense. The team only amassed seven hits, two of which came from senior CJ Griffin, but they took advantage of the shortages on the Phoenix defense and scored on their shortcomings. They played smart baseball and had timely hitting that helped the team to drive in runs. LW was especially effective early in the game when they gained an early lead in the second inning, which came in handy for the team as they started to disband later in the game.

The team is looking to finish the season on a strong note with their final regular season game on Monday versus Black River. In the meantime, the team will face Clearview in the first game of sectional playoffs. The team is now 11-8 overall and 9-6 in PAC-12 play.
