Brooklyn 6, Lutheran West 4

Lutheran West lost a key PAC-12 game to Brooklyn last night 6-4. Entering the game LW and Fairview were tied in third place, ½ game ahead of Brooklyn. A win against Brooklyn would guarantee LW a higher place than the Hurricanes and keep LW in a tie for third with one game to go. 
The Longhorns didn’t come through. 
After a disastrous first inning when junior starting pitcher CJ Griffin walked four batters—two of which were with the bases loaded—and three runs after two men were out, LW fought back to tie the game at three with a pair of runs in the third. A walk to junior Eric Lewis, a double off the bat of sophomore Derek Naim, and a botched ground ball to third off the bat of senior Andrew Samoson led to LW tying the game at 3.   
Unfortunately, LW gave the lead right back in the fourth. After hitting the first batter of the inning in the back with a pitch and walking the second, Coach Trey Lamb had no choice but to pull Griffin and go to his bullpen, calling on sophomore Aaron Geye . Geye struggled to get out of the jam, giving up two hits, and throwing a pair of wild pitches. Geye set down the last seven he faced in order to finish the game, but by that time, the damage was done. 
The Longhorns squeezed out a run in the sixth, but it wasn’t enough. Senior Ricky Downer led off with a single, stole second, moved to third on a single from Griffin, and scored when Griffin got in a run down after being picked off first.
