BROOKLYN --  Lutheran West rolled over Brooklyn earlier tonight 16-1.  The game was over quickly, and soon become a snoozer.  LW struck for three runs in the top of the first on a mammoth homerun off the bat of senior Zach Hausmann.  In the third, LW scored eight runs, with the big shot coming on a two-run, line-drive home run by senior Cal Thomay over the left center fence. 

Sophomore Anders Mahon shut down the Hurricanes to the tune of only one run and only allowing a two-out double in the first inning.  Mahon struck out nine in the five inning-mercy rule shortened game.

Brooklyn’s only run came in the fourth inning when Mahon walked the leadoff hitter.  After a strikeout and a popup, Mahon plunked the next batter on a 1-1 pitch to put runners on first and second.  After the second pitch to the next hitter, senior catcher Billy Valletto picked off the runner on first with a snap throw to senior first baseman Sam Myers.  Unfortunately Valletto picked him off too much and instead of coming back to first, the Hurricane runner got into a rundown.  While Myers ran him to second and senior shortstop Justin Chislow ran him back to first, the Brooklyn runner on second scampered all the way around third and scored as the Brooklyn runner managed to get safely back to first.  Really, it was the only thing LW did wrong all day.  Mahon struck out the batter to end the inning on the next pitch.

Eleven different Longhorn players scored in the game.
