ROCKY RIVER --  Wellington 5, LW 0

Lutheran West laid an egg yesterday, falling to Wellington 5-0 in a game that featured little Longhorn hitting or fielding behind Longhorn senior ace John Smolik.  Smolik, who took the loss and falls to 2-3 on the year, allowed only two earned runs while striking out 5 in six innings of work. Wellington had very little hard contact on Smolik all day, but it didn’t matter as the Longhorns committed 6 errors and managed only two meager hits all day.

In truth, sophomore Jake Gross had a nice afternoon.  He may have been the only Longhorn who did.  Gross had both of the Longhron’s hits—a two-out single up the middle in the second and a line drive single to right with one out in the seventh. Gross also threw out two Dukes trying to steal second and made a nice play to tag out a runner trying to score on a single to center.  Sophomore Trey DeCiccio continued to demonstrate why baserunners shouldn’t run on him as he gunned down his second runner at the plate on the year with a great throw from center field to Gross at the plate.

The game started poorly for the Longhorns when they misplayed two balls in the infield in the first inning that allowed Wellington to score two runs on no hits in the inning.  Smolik pitched around an error in the third and another error in the fourth, but allowed two runs in the fifth on a lead off walk, a bunt single, an errant pick off throw and two traditional singles.

Junior Jeremiah Stover allowed one unearned run on two singles and an error in the seventh.
