Rocky River 8, Lutheran West 4

After a rainy morning, the skies cleared and the Longhorns faced the Rocky River Pirates in Ricky River. After beating them pre-season, Lutheran West went into the game with confidence. Jumping out to a quick lead, things looked as if they would hold to form. Unfortunately, late the in the game, the defense struggled and the Pirates took home a comeback win.
West quickly grabbed the lead in the top of the first, gathering four hits and scored a run in the first frame.  In the third inning, the Longhorns added to that lead with a bases loaded double off the bat of freshman pitcher Aly Silberhorn to push the lead to 3-0.  Another hit by junior Megan Thomas brought home a third runner to put the Longhorns up 4-0 at the end of the top of the third.
That, unfortunately, was where the fireworks ended. Rocky River, quickly responded by putting a five spot up on the board in the bottom of the third thanks to shaky LW defense combined with a few hits and bunts from the Pirates. Rocky River added two more runs in the fourth and one in the sixth. Lutheran West fell quiet at the plate and lost the game 8-4.
