Williamsport, PA - Sunday was a great day for Austin Kryszczuk, as he clubbed two home runs to carry West to a 13-2 victory over Great Lakes at Lamade in four innings.
Eight runs in the first three innings helped West blow out Great Lakes. A home run by Brad Stone in the first inning and a solo home run by Kryszczuk during the second inning supplied the early offense for West.

West hit five home runs in the win. Additional home runs for West came when Kryszczuk homered in the second and fourth innings, Dominic Clayton homered in the fourth inning, and Zach Hare homered in the fourth inning.
Brennan Holligan looked sharp on the rubber. Great Lakes managed just two hits off of Holligan, who allowed one earned run, walked two and struck out six during his four innings of work.
West easily handled Great Lakes pitching as six hitters combined for 10 hits, 13 RBIs and 11 runs scored.
Brandon Green lasted one inning on the bump for Great Lakes before being replaced. Green allowed one hit and four runs.
West added three more runs in the top of the third. Hare's single got things going, plating Alex Barker. That was followed up by Kryszczuk's single, scoring Josiah Cromwick.
West tacked on another five runs in the fourth. Clayton kicked things off with a two-run blast, plating Drew Laspaluto. That was followed up by Hare's two-run home run, scoring Barker.
