ROCKY RIVER --  Lutheran West won their fourth game in a row, easily handling Fuchs Mizrachi for the second time on the year. Freshmen Rory Zakareckis and Matt Brosky combined to shut down the Mayhem, allowing only one unearned run and one hit in the game.  Fuchs Mizrachi managed only six baserunners the entire game—and not one after the fourth inning.
 
Honestly, Fuchs Mizrachi’s only hit and only run were complete gifts.  The Mayhem’s leadoff hitter of the game, Max Goldstein, hit a 3-2 pitch high in the air—but shallow—down the left field line.  With junior left fielder Tommy Walker sprinting in and senior short stop Nick Gambetta and freshman third baseman Owen Albers sprinting out, the ball fell just out of everyone’s reach about ten feet foul.  To the complete shock of everyone at the park, the home plate umpire called the ball fair.  Since all three LW players had pulled up when they saw the ball land foul, Goldstein continued into second base.  The throw was late and off line and skipped into right field allowing Goldstein to go to third.  He would score on a double steal later in the inning while Longhorn senior catcher Sam Jakabcic gunned down the runner at second as Goldstein took home.
 
The rest of the game, Fuchs Mizrachi only managed to get one runner to second and no one to third.
 
Offensively, LW had runners on early and often, scoring five times in the first and three in the second to blow the game open. Gambetta and sophomore Alex Robinson (3 RBIs) had hits in both innings.  Brosky had a double and a walk, and Jakabcic had a two out, two run single in the second to go with his walk in the first.
 
In the sixth, junior JV call up Kyle Graham smashed a double and scored on Walker’s second single of the day.
