ROCKY RIVER --  For the second straight night, the Lutheran West Longhorns defeated the Clearview Clippers 4-2 and moved to 6-2 in conference play, one full game ahead of Columbia.

Effective pitching was the most important part of Wednesday night’s contest. Senior Greg Kunze took the mound against Clearview’s Roger Engle in what was a thrilling pitcher’s duel.

Kunze and Engle were both big threats on the mound. Both threw the right pitches and were able to match each other throughout all seven innings of play.

Ultimately Kunze came out on top, with his offense doing more off of Engle’s game. Kunze’s dominant game was defined by allowing only four hits and four walks while striking out eleven.

In addition to the great pitching effort, the Longhorns were able to clean up on the defensive side and keep their play clean. In contrast to the five errors the night before, the Longhorns played without committing a single error.

Offensively, LW did what they could against a worthy pitching opponent. Senior Collin McCartney came up big for the ‘Horns and was 3-3 on the night with two singles and a double in the fourth that served as the go ahead run. Senior Eric Szczepinski contributed two hits in the victory, both singles. Sophomore Tim Gettinger had the deepest hit of the game, with a triple out to left field in the bottom of the fifth inning.

The Longhorns once again led an offensive attack and struck when given the opportunity. They played a very steady game and were rewarded for their efforts.
