ROCKY RIVER --  The Longhorns were unable to lead a comeback after falling early to Buckeye in Thursday night’s contest. Ultimately, the Bucks outlasted LW and took the 5-3 victory, snapping West’s five game winning streak.

Senior Eric Szczepinski pitched all seven innings for the Longhorns. He had a rocky start, giving up all five of the Bucks’ runs in the first two innings and seven of their nine hits. However, he started to find his zone and was able to get quick outs and hold Buckeye’s explosive offense.

Lutheran West had a chance to make a comeback in the fourth inning. The ‘Horns first two batters were retired by the Bucks, but they were able to start an attack with Szczepinski taking a hit by the opposing pitcher. Senior Collin McCartney came up to bat and advanced the runner with a single of his own. The bases were loaded by a walk to senior Aaron Geye for sophomore Tommy Walker. Walker took a walk and brought in Szczepinski. With the bases still loaded, senior Noah Potantus hit a two run RBI single to bring the game to 5-3 and with the go ahead run on base. However, the next batter struck out and brought an end to the Longhorn’s only run.

The first two innings were killers for LW’s momentum and the tone of the game. The Bucks came out ready to fight and were able to set the game for their play. West was forced to catch-up and eventually fell short.

The team looks to get back on the winning side with another conference game on Friday versus the Fairview Warriors.
