ROCKY RIVER --  Senior Alex Robinson (W, 1-0) dominated rival Fairview, striking out 10 while allowing only two hits as Lutheran West (3-0, 1-0) got a win in its first conference game of the year.  In each of the Longhorn’s first three games, LW has gotten a complete game victory with 10+ strikeouts from a different starter.  Senior Tristan Zimmer did it last Wednesday, junior Rory Zakareckis shut down John Marshall on Thursday, and now Robinson overwhelmed Fairview last night.

Robinson was never really tested.  He gave up a run in the first on a walk, a steal, and a pair of groundouts.  In the third, he gave up a one-out single but then promptly picked the runner off first base.  He then gave up a single to the next hitter, but stranded him at first.  In the sixth, a walk and a hit batsman put runners on first and second with two outs, but a fly out to shallow left ended the inning.  And then in the seventh, Robinson walked his third batter of the game. That’s all the baserunners that Fairview saw in the game. 

Offensively, West had runners all over the place.  The scoring began in the third when West scored five runs on only three hits.  Junior Owen Albers, Robinson, Zakareckis, senior Scottie Berghaus, and junior Michael Berghaus all had RBIs. 

West scored twice more in the fourth when Albers, who had doubled, and Zakareckis, who had walked, both scored when Berghaus crushed a double over the head of the left fielder. 

Senior Josh Cales grabbed two RBIs in the fifth knocking in junior Jeremy Geye and junior Alex Gavlak.  Cales then scored on a single from Albers. 

West will look to sweep the season series from the Warriors when they take the long trek over to Bohlken Park for tomorrow’s game.
