ROCKY RIVER --  Lutheran West began its OHSAA Tournament play with a bang, dismantling St. Martin des Porres 28-0.  Senior Rory Zakareckis (W, 5-1) threw a perfect game—the second in LW history—striking out 11 of the 15 batters that he faced.  The other four outs were ground outs. 

Offensively, West did everything it could to not run up the score.  The Longhorns sent 19 men to the plate in the first inning alone, scoring a total of 14 runs.  St. Martin des Porres made three errors in the inning alone—and had numerous other plays that could have been made that were not charged as errors.  They managed to escape the inning thanks to a dropped pop-up that was ruled an out due to the infield fly rule, a strikeout, and mercifully, a ground out to shortstop that wasn’t thrown away.

The Longhorns then subbed in every player on their bench plus every JV player that was hanging around who had his uniform on him.  It didn’t matter much, as the second set of players scored 14 more runs over the next three innings. 

Junior Micheal Snider had his first two varsity hits and first varsity RBI.  Snider should have had his first varsity double as well when he tagged a pitch into the left center gap, but as LW was trying desperately not to run up the score, he held up at first.  Sophomore Cameron Wandrie also had his first varsity hit, scoring two times and earning an RBI as well.

Sophomore Hunter Albers and Zakareckis had the best overall days at the plate for LW, with Zakareckis collecting five hits and four RBIs in five at bats and Albers collecting four hits and six RBIs in five at bats.

Lutheran West moves on to face Wickliffe tomorrow at Colby Park in Willoughby in the sectional finals.
