OBERLIN --  Lutheran West took advantage of 13 Oberlin errors, scoring 14 times and blowing out the host Phoenix in a mercy-rule shortened game on Tuesday.  West wrapped out 13 hits, including a majestic home run from senior Tim Gettinger well over the left center fence.  Junior Alex Robinson (W, 2-2) got the win for the Longhorns, throwing three innings and striking out five.

West scored five runs in the first inning—only one of them earned—when Oberlin committed five errors, three of which came on consecutive ground balls.  Robinson had the big hit, with a two run single.  The second was more of the same, as LW scored two more runs on two hits and five more errors.  That put the score up to 7-0 and effectively ended the little fight that the Phoenix had brought to the game.

West scored two runs in the fourth, including Gettinger’s bomb in the fifth, and then topped off the scoring with four runs in the sixth.  Junior Josh Cales, sophomore Owen Albers, senior Tommy Walker, Gettinger, and Robinson all had multiple hits on the day.  Walker and Robinson both led the team with three RBIs. 

With the win, West clinches at least a share of the PAC-12 Stripes Division title.  Should the Longhorns win when they play Wellington on Thursday or Clearview lose any of their final four games, LW would clinch the title outright.  The Longhorns are currently 14-4 on the season.
