ROCKY RIVER --  Lutheran West pulled out a crazy win last night against Oberlin thanks to clutch hitting from senior Sammy Jakabcic and top-notch pitching from junior Tommy Walker.  Walker was dominant all night, striking out 13 while only allowing one earned run in six innings of work.  But Walker’s efforts were not enough.  West needed some heroics from Jakabcic to go home with the win.

Down 2-1 in the bottom of the seventh inning with one out, senior Collin Gill rapped a single into left.  Freshman Owen Albers then executed a perfect drag bunt for a base hit to put runners on first and second.  Jakabcic then stepped to the plate and drilled the 1-1 pitch into the left-center gap to score both runners and take LW from losing 2-1 to winning 3-2.  It was the first walk off win for LW since Zach Hausmann (class of 2010) walked off Columbia when West beat the Raiders 5-4.

West scored its first run of the game when Walker hit a one-out double down the right field line.  After he moved to third on a groundball hit by freshman Rory Zakareckis that was booted by Oberlin’s shortstop, Walker and Zakareckis committed the perfect failed double steal.  Before the first pitch to sophomore Alex Robinson, Zakareckis took off for second with the plan of causing Oberlin to get him in a rundown while Walker would score.  Oberlin fell for the trick, tagging out Zakareckis, but only after Walker scored LW’s first run from third.
