BROOKSIDE --  Behind a dominant pitching performance from sophomore Matt Brosky (W, 4-1) and timely hitting, Lutheran West won their sixth game in a row to maintain their 1.5 game lead over Clearview and Columbia in the PAC-12 Stripes Division.  Brosky overpowered host Brookside’s hitters all day, striking out five and walking only two in the complete game performance.  Brosky now has four wins on the year and will be lined up to take the ball next week when West plays a two game series against Columbia.

West jumped out to a quick 1-0 lead in the top of the first when sophomore Owen Albers ripped a one-out triple into the gap and scored on a RBI groundout from Brosky.

After Brosky worked around a bases-loaded situation in the first—his only real trouble in the entire game—and a couple of quiet innings passed, LW struck the crucial blow in the game when junior Alex Robinson came through with a bases loaded double into the gap in right center that scored Brosky, sophomore Rory Zakareckis, and junior Scottie Berghaus who had all reached base via a hit earlier in the inning.

The Longhorns scored four more times to put the game away in the sixth when freshman John Smolik had his first extra-base hit of the year when he drove a 2-0 fastball into the gap in left-center.  After junior Evan McCartney’s ball was misplayed by the shortstop, junior Josh Cales hit a double to right to score Smolik, and Albers hit a single that scored both McCartney and Cales to bring LW’s run total to its final total of 8.

West will travel out to Firelands to face the Stars Division leading Falcons tomorrow.
