ROCKY RIVER --  Lutheran West climbed out to a 3-0 lead and then held on to beat rival Clearview 4-3 last night.  In what many consider to be the Longhorns first test of the year, LW gritted out a tough matchup and swept the season series from the visiting Clippers.  With the win, Lutheran West advances to 7-0 and, more importantly, 5-0 in conference play.
 
Senior Tristan Zimmer (W, 2-0) was excellent for the Longhorns on the mound, settling down after a round fourth and fifth inning to set down Clearview in the sixth and seventh for the complete game win. 
 
With the Longhorns up 3-0 in the fourth—and Zimmer seemingly coasting through the Clearview lineup—Zimmer gave up back to back doubles in the fourth and a two-out single to see the lead cut to 3-2.  West responded with a run of their own in the bottom of the fourth but Clearview got the run back thanks to a leadoff double and one-out single to right center that fell in between senior right fielder Alex Robinson and senior centerfielder Josh Cales.  After a ground out and a walk, Clearview’s fourth hitter Dakota Stout lined a sharp ground ball to the hole between third base and shortstop. The hard hit grounder caromed off Longhorn third baseman Owen Albers about six feet to his left.  Longhorn senior shortstop Scottie Berghaus came out of seemingly nowhere, picked up the ball and gunned out Stout to end the inning and Clearview’s final threat of the game.
 
West will take the long trip to Buckeye on Thursday to put their undefeated season on the line against the Bucks.  The Longhorns have not won in Buckeye since 2008.
