ROCKY RIVER --  Senior Longhorn ace Alex Robinson (W, 4-0) outdueled senior Columbia ace Jared Heidecker (L, 3-1), handing Heidecker his first loss of the year with a dominating performance as Lutheran West gave Columbia it’s fifth loss in the conference race.  With the win, West moves to 10-1 and most importantly 8-1 in the PAC-12—a four game lead over Columbia.

Robinson was practically unhittable, allowing only one unearned run in his complete game victory.  He skated in and out of trouble all day, stranding 11 runners on base.  He picked off two runners in the game—one in the second (an inning in which he eventually stranded the bases loaded) and one for the final out of the game when he picked a runner off of second.

A 1-1 tie was broken by two runs from Lutheran West in the fourth inning when junior Michael Berghaus came home on a double over the center fielders head by senior Tristan Zimmer.  Zimmer would score the second run of the inning on a throwing error by Heidecker.

Columbia’s lone run came in the third inning when a two-out fly ball was dropped by Berghaus in right field allowing a runner to score from second.

Offensively, West jumped out to 1-0 lead in the bottom of the first thanks to a two-out walk to Robinson, a single from junior Rory Zakareckis, and a single from senior Scottie Berghaus.

Lutheran West picked up a pair of insurance runs in the sixth thanks to an RBI ground out from junior Alex Gavlak and a sacrifice fly from junior Jeremy Geye.
