With this as Fairview’s first year in the Pac-12, LW’s match-up against the Warriors became that much more important. In years past, the game against Fairview was always a rivalry, but this year’s had much more at stake with it being counted as a conference game.
The Longhorns played tough against their rivals from down the street and managed to take a seventh inning victory. After taking the lead in the fourth inning, LW let the Warriors tie the game in the top of the seventh inning. However, they knew the importance of the match-up and pushed to get the last run that would give them the victory.
Junior Eric Lewis was on the mound for the Longhorns. Pitching five innings, he allowed eight runs, four earned, eight hits, two walks, and six strikeouts. Despite his tremendous pitching, he came out of the game without the win. Gaining the win for LW was sophomore Aaron Geye who gave up two runs, two hits, 2 walks, and throwing one strikeout while closing the final two innings.
Lewis also had a big day at the plate for the Longhorns. He recorded two of West’s ten hits, a single and a triple. Also showing a big offensive performance was junior CJ Griffin. Griffin had two singles, a double, and three RBIs. However, the most important hit of the game went to junior Tyler Cerny. Cerny, who had previously gotten on base by two errors and a fielder’s choice, hit the game winning single that scored sophomore Eric Szczepinski.
LW’s games for the week are completed and they look towards playing six games next week, with the first being on Monday versus Clearview at home.
