BROOKSIDE --  On a beautiful day in Sheffield Lake, Lutheran West put together their first well-played game of the year and overwhelmed host Brookside 12-2. The Longhorns broke through offensively early scoring 9 runs off Brookside’s starting pitcher before chasing him from the game midway through the third. Senior Rory Zakareckis (W, 1-1) was in control on the mound all day, using a Corey Kluber-like 64 pitches to shut down the Cardinals for six innings, keeping them off balance by changing speeds all day.

West didn’t take long to get the offense rolling. With one out in the second, senior Alex Gavlak walked, junior Jake Albrecht singled, and junior John Smolik was hit by a pitch to load the bases.  Sophomore Tyler Robinson reached on an infield single to score Gavlak, and freshman Trey DeCicco ripped a two-run single to right field to make the score 3-1. Then senior Jeremy Geye hammered a two-run double to the gap in right center. Geye moved to third on a ground out by senior Michael Berghaus and then scored when the first baseman threw the ball away trying to get Geye at third. 

Geye earned two more RBIs in the next inning when he knocked in Smolik and Robinson with a two-out single to right center in the third. He scored on an RBI single two batters later off the bat of senior Owen Albers. Geye finished the day going three for five with a double, two runs scored and four RBIs.

Eight different Longhorns contributed hits on the day.  The Longhorns in total collected 11 in total.

Sophomore Jeremiah Stover made his debut for the Longhorns on the mound, shutting down the Cardinals in the seventh.

The Longhorns will travel to Clearview tomorrow for a Stripes Division showdown with PAC title implications.
