ROCKY RIVER --  For the second straight day to start the season, the Longhorns laid an egg—this time defensively—as Lutheran West wasted an excellent pitching performance from senior Jeremy Geye (L, 0-1).

Errors in the second, third, and fifth, led to seven unearned runs.  Geye was charged with nine runs overall, but basically had to pitch around extra outs continually. Geye walked only one, and was effective all day, but was left vulnerable by the defense behind him all day.  West’s infield was charged with all five errors on the day—four on throwing issues and one on the fielding of a ground ball. 

Offensively, West did practically nothing. It took until the fourth inning for LW to get their first hit.  Senior Rory Zakareckis lined a base hit to right for the first hit. After Zakareckis moved to second on a passed ball, junior John Smolik knocked him home with a single to left. After Smolik moved to second and third on a pair of wild pitches, he scored on an RBI ground out by senior Alex Gavlak.

West managed one hit the rest of the game.

One bright spot for the Longhorns was freshman Zach Hammer-Huber who made his debut on the mound in the sixth and seventh.  Hammer-Huber allowed one run on one hit in his two innings pitched, setting down the last six hitters he faced.  He struck out one.
