ROCKY RIVER --  Lutheran West picked up a big win on Friday, knocking off the Wellington Dukes 10-6 behind the pitching and hitting of senior Eric Szczepinski.  Szczepinski practically won the game himself, throwing a complete game striking out six and allowing only three earned runs, six total, all while collecting three hits, scoring two runs, and totaling four RBIs in his five trips to the plate.
 
The game started with Lutheran West jumping on Wellington starter Kevin Scott for three unearned runs.  Szczepinski collected his first RBI when he knocked in junior Sam Jakabcic with a one-out single up the middle.  After a double from sophomore Tim Gettinger, West plated two runs on a sacrifice fly from sophomore Tommy Walker and a single up the middle from senior Collin McCartney.
 
After Wellington scored a pair of runs in the bottom half to make the lead to 3-2, Szczepinski settled into his groove and didn’t allow any more runs until two unearned runs crossed the plate in the bottom of the sixth.

After two quick innings, West exploded for four runs in the top of the fourth.  Junior Colin Gill started the scoring with a one-out double, and then scored on a Jakabcic single through the right side.  Freshman Scott Berghaus, Szczepinski, and Gettinger then all had RBI singles to push LW’s lead to 7-2.
 
The fifth brought more of the same.  After a ten pitch at-bat to senior Noah Potantus led to a leadoff triple, Potantus scored on a base hit from Gill.  After a pair of walks, Szczepinski singled in two more runs with a sharp single to left.
