KEYSTONE --  Last night Lutheran West fell to Stars Division champion Keystone 13-0 in a mercy-rule shortened game. Junior Ryan Szczepinski took the loss and falls to 3-1 on the season. 

Usually when a game is mercy-rule shortened, one team bludgeons the other.  Typically in a game like this there are either walks or extra-base hits—hard contact at least—that allows the winning team to pummel the losing team.   This game had none of that. 

In truth, Keystone did not hit Szczepinski hard.  Nor did they hit his replacement, junior Jeremiah Stover hard.  All they did was hit well placed ground balls and soft fly balls that fell in front of LW’s outfielders.  Szczepinski, who lasted 11 batters, gave up 6 hits.  Two were struck well, three were ground balls that were perfectly placed, and one was a check-swing blooper that fell into right field between the first and second.  

Stover fared no better in his inning of work. The first five batters he faced all hit singles—one coming off a pitch that was bounced. Only one made to the outfield on a fly.

It was just one of those days.
 
West looks to bounce back when they face rival Fairview in back to back games on Wednesday and Thursday.
