ROCKY RIVER --  Lutheran West took care of business last night, knocking off the visiting Phoenix of Oberlin 11-1 on a miserable day. The rain was continual but so was the Longhorn offense that scored in every inning except the fourth.  West rapped out 12 hits and collected 11 RBIs, despite stranding eight runners in the game. 

Senior Owen Albers (W, 1-1) threw the complete game—5 innings—and struck out 10 en route to his first win of the season.  Albers only really saw trouble in the second and fifth innings.  In the second he struck out back to back hitters—looking—with the bases loaded to end the inning without giving up a run.  In the fifth, two two-out singles that sandwiched a walk netted Oberlin’s lone run of the game.  Other than that, Albers was lights out.

Seniors Jeremy Geye and Michael Berghaus continued to torch Phoenix pitching all game.  Geye was three for four—the only time the Phoenix retired the Longhorn catcher was when he lined into an inning ending double play in the third.  In the two games against Oberlin, Geye has six hits in eight plate appearances, four runs scored, four stolen bases, and four RBIs.  Berghaus has collected four hits—three for extra bases—three RBIs, and two runs scored in the two games as well.

The Longhorns have now won five in a row and six of their last seven games.  During those seven games, LW has outscored their opponents 67 to 18—an average of 9.6 to 2.6.

West will travel out to Wellington tomorrow in a PAC conference game.  The Longhorns sit atop the PAC Stripes Division standings by a half a game over Fairview (who they play Monday and Tuesday next week) and Clearview (who they play on Wednesday).
