ROCKY RIVER --  Lutheran West took it on the chin again today as the Longhorns let a close game get away from them and lost 11-1.  The loss drops the Longhorns to 1-3 on the young season.

Senior Owen Albers (L, 0-1) took the loss for the Longhorns.  Albers flirted with danger all day, and eventually paid the price in the fourth inning, when the visiting Falcons blew the game open—and knocked Albers out—with six runs. Albers opened the frame by walking the 7, 8, and 9 hitters to open the inning.  The rest does not need to be described.  In total, Firelands scored six runs on four hits and six walks.  Ironically, West got all three outs in the inning by throwing out overly aggressive Falcon baserunners.

Offensively, West looked as anemic as they have in the first four games.  Senior Jeremy Geye (double) and Albers both had hits in the first, but were stranded.  Senior Alex Gavlak drilled a triple all the way to the greenhouse in centerfield and scored LW’s only run on a single by junior John Smolik in the second. Freshman Trey DeCicco had a single in the fifth, and senior Rory Zakareckis had a double in the sixth. And that was all for the Longhorns for the entire game.

Lutheran West will attempt to right the ship tomorrow when they travel out to Brookside.
