OBERLIN --  LW was an offensive juggernaut again last night scoring 19 runs on 15 hits to defeat a surprisingly tenacious Oberlin team 19-10.

After a scoreless first inning, LW exploded for seven runs on five hits in the second.  Oberlin, not willing to be the victim yet again responded with two singles and a three run home run off of senior LW starter Sam Myers before Myers could record a single out.  LW would not be denied, however, scoring eight more in the third including a bases loaded double for senior Cal Thomay and a two run double from senior Mitch Zaharewicz.

But Oberlin wasn’t willing to go quietly.  Down 16 to 4, they bounced back and put up 6 runs of their own before LW coach Dave Sellke called on his pen to keep the Phoenix at bay.  An error on LW sophomore third baseman Jake Dersi, a walk, an infield hit, and a two run double to center plated the first two runs.  Another walk, an error on sophomore Anders Mahon and a two run single plated three more.  A wild pitch brought in the sixth.  

Sellke called on senior Justin Chislow to slam the door.  Chislow, presented with a bases loaded, one out jam, did just that, striking out the first batter, and the coaxing a pop up from the second.  

Chislow continued the LW onslaught in the top of the fifth, slamming a three run home run to left—the first of his career at Lutheran West.

Chislow and Thomay finished the game on the hill without incident, setting down the Phoenix in order for each of the final three innings.
