CLEARVIEW --  Sometimes the matchup on paper can fool you.  Sometimes things go exactly as would be expected.

Last night, when Lutheran West travelled to Clearview High School to take on the Clippers, things went exactly as planned.  With Clearview’s ace pitching on Tuesday and Lutheran West throwing senior Alex Robinson, the matchup leaned heavily in favor of the Longhorns.  And things worked exactly as the matchup indicated that they should.

Robinson threw six innings and was practically untouched.  He scattered two hits and four walks and allowed only one runner to reach third base all day. Robinson fanned 10 in the 104 pitch performance and picked off two runners.
 
Offensively, West scored twice in the first on a bases-loaded hit batsman and a sacrifice fly from senior Scottie Berghaus.  After stranding the bases loaded in both the first and second they broke through on a single through the right side by sophomore John Smolik.   But the flood gates opened when they scored six times on five hits in the sixth inning to blow the game open.  Senior Tristan Zimmer led off the inning with a base hit.  Junior Jeremy Geye bunted his way on for a base hit to runners at first and second.  A walk to senior Josh Cales loaded the bases.  Junior Owen Albers knocked in Zimmer with a hit, Robinson drove in Geye and Cales with another and junior Rory Zakareckis followed with a base hit to load them up again.  RBI groundouts from the Berghaus brothers (Scottie and junior Michael) brought in the final two runs of the inning.

The Longhorns will put their undefeated record on the line when they host Clearview looking for a season sweep of the Clippers tomorrow.  West is currently 6-0 and 4-0 in PAC-12 play.
