ROCKY RIVER --  It was ugly baseball from start to finish.
 
West committed six errors, walked seven hitters, surrendered 17 runs on 12 hits, all while only getting 13 outs before the game was mercifully ended in the bottom of the fifth. Offensively, West mustered only six hits and failed to capitalize on seven Fairview walks in the middle three innings, leaving seven runners on base.
 
Junior Tommy Walker started the game on the mound and struggled from the beginning, giving up five runs on four hits and a walk in the first.  LW mounted a comeback and tied the game with four in the second—senior Sammy Jakabcic had the big hit with a bases loaded double—and one in the third on an RBI double from Walker, but gave it back immediately when Walker was tagged for five more runs on five hits and a pair of walks in the bottom of the third.
 
Fairview got charitable, and gave back a pair of the runs as West scored two thanks to four walks and an error.  The Longhorns were not one to take and not reciprocate, however, and left the bases loaded.  They then gave back even more when junior relief pitcher Brady Rujawitz walked three and hit another hitter before being removed from the game to start the fourth.  All four scored.
 
Then the rain hit and the game was suspended.
 
It didn’t take long when the game resumed for it to end.  Once senior Nick Gambetta finished the fourth, LW went down quickly in the fifth, and then gave away a few more runs—a walk, a steal, an error and a couple hits—to take the game to its natural mercy-rule-aided conclusion
