Demons Down Berea 22-3
The Demons gained a season split with Berea in resounding fashion with a 22-3 victory at Plant Field on another beautiful evening for baseball. The Demons fell to the Titans 4-0 at home earlier in the season. The win advances the Westlakers record to 11-4 on the year as well as in conference play with one conference and one non-conference game remaining before the commencement of the SWC freshman baseball tournament.
The Demons opened the scoring with two runs in the visitors half of the first inning. The Titans answered right back with three runs in their half of the frame. After that it was all Demons who plated nine in the second, three in the third, seven in the fourth and one in the fifth to secure the mercy rule triumph (10 run lead after five innings).
It was Charlie Zkiab’s turn on the hill and he went 4.1 allowing three runs on five hits and three walks while striking out five. Zach Regas cleaned up the last two outs with two Ks of his own.
The Demon hit parade made the Cleveland St. Patrick’s Day parade look modest in comparison. Here are the offensive leaders: Zach Regas five hits, five RBI and four runs; Jack Kerr three RBI; Collin Burrows two hits and five RBI; Cal Reghi two hits and two RBI; Jack Finucane two hits and three runs; Zkiab three RBI; Jacob Reidl four runs; Michael Stenger three hits, three RBI and three runs. Titan hurlers struggled to find the plate and issued fourteen walks while Titan defenders committed five errors to assist in the Demons onslaught.
The Demons take on North Ridgeville at home under the lights at 7:00 following the varsity contest. This will be an “away” game for the freshman Demons as it’s a makeup of a rained out affair that was to be played at the Rangers home field earlier in the season. So come out and enjoy two games for the “price” (it’s STILL FREE) of one. See ya at the yard!
