Heading into Tuesday’s matchup at Pembroke, Lakers senior Mike Lundin had a flawless 6-0 record and 0.00 ERA for No. 12 Silver Lake.
He had pitched 38 innings and struck out 51. Confidence was certainly not lacking for the Lakers baseball team, which clinched its first outright Patriot League title in school history with a 5-1 win over the Titans.
Silver Lake (15-2) controlled its destiny, but also had to hope for a Hingham loss to clinch sole possession of the title.
A hitting barrage in the top of the first inning put the Lakers up, 4-0, and Lundin followed by fanning five of the first six batters.
‘‘The numbers speak for themselves,’’ said Silver Lake coach Kenny Tocci. ‘‘Those stats are even more impressive because of who he has beaten. He’s pitching against the iron of the league and he is dominating.’’
Leading by four runs, Tocci pulled Lundin in the third inning, but put him in left field just in case he needed to use him again. Fortunately for the Lakers, they didn’t have to.
Freshman Anthony Videtto pitched the final four innings and gave up Pembroke’s lone run in the sixth. On the bus ride home, Tocci informed his team that the Green Dragons had defeated the Harbormen, 4-2, and the Lakers erupted in celebration.
