The 8-0 loss to Lakewood dropped the Demons overall record to 5-3 and 3-3 in the SWC. Westlake could only muster four hits against Lakewood ace Armani Adames who K’d seven and did not walk anyone in a complete game victory. The Demons had only one base runner reach third.
The Demons were down only 1-0 going into the fifth as Noah Marlette battled valiantly to keep the Horns close. Through four frames he allowed only two singles and one walk. Attempting to pitch around those five errors eventually took its toll as the Rangers scored two in the fifth (one earned) five in the sixth (two earned).
The good news is that the boys get a chance to run it out there again tomorrow in a 4:30 tilt at Olmsted Falls. No doubt it will be a loose but determined group that takes the diamond. See ya at the yard!
