ROCKY RIVER --  In a huge win on Thursday, West downed Brookside 5-3 and upped their conference record to 8-4.  Columbia, who is currently in first place in the PAC-12 Stripes Division, is 5-2.

Senior Greg Kunze was dominant all day, keeping Brookside off balance with a menagerie of off-speed pitches.  Kunze struck out six in the complete game victory, allowing only one earned run.
 
West took advantage of three Brookside errors, with all five of their runs unearned. 

The Longhorns scored three runs in the first.  With two outs and the bases loaded, senior Aaron Geye hit a bases clearing triple that one-hopped the wall in left center. 

After Brookside closed the game to 3-2, West scored two key runs in the top of the seventh on a beautiful bunt single by senior Eric Szczepinski to lead off the inning.  Sophomore Tim Gettinger then hit a ground ball that the third baseman threw wildly toward second, pulling the second baseman off the base. After a wild pitch moved Szczepinski to third, a wild throw by the catcher allowed Szczepinski to score and Gettinger to move to third.  Geye plated his fourth RBI of the day when he laid down a perfect safety squeeze to score Gettinger easily from third.

Kunze gave up a meaningless unearned run in the seventh and then promptly stuck out the final two batters to end the game.
