Parma 11, Lutheran West 7
By Mark Fenske  | staff
Friday, April 20, 2012

After playing a quality game of baseball for the first time in the week on Thursday, LW reverted to its old ways on Friday, falling to Parma 11-6 thanks to poor pitching and fielding. Junior Eric Lewis started the game and took the loss, but the blame can hardly fall on him. Lewis was hit for eight runs in his three innings of work, but only six hits.   Of the eight runs, only two of them were earned. In total, Parma scored 4 earned runs, and LW 5. Yet, LW lost the game 11-6.
The problems boil down to walks and errors, a theme all too familiar to the Longhorn faithful. Again, LW walked seven batters and hit another, combining for eight free passes in the game. Add to that nine hits and four LW errors and it’s not hard to see why Parma put up 11 runs. 
In contrast, LW had to work for all of their runs. Parma’s pitching staff handed out only four free walks and scattered seven hits. LW also hit into three double plays in the game. 
Seniors Andrew Samoson and Ricky Downer both collected two hits in the game. Samoson and sophomore Derek Naim had two RBIs each.
