Rua becomes all-time leading home run hitter at Lake Erie College

Amherst’s Ryan Rua became Lake Erie College’s all-time home run leader as the Storm baseball team powered its way to a doubleheader sweep of Baldwin-Wallace College on Saturday.

The Storm, playing in their first home game of the season, homered five times, including three by Rua, to win by scores of 15-5 and 11-9. With the wins, Lake Erie ran its winning streak to four games and evened its record at 8-8 for its best record this late in the season in the program’s nine-year history.

The three homers by Rua put his career total at 18, one more than Ben Reed had from 2006-09. He leads the team with seven homers on the season.

Rua went 4-for-4 with four RBIs and homered twice in the opener as the Storm broke open a one-run game with a four-run third inning and then put it away with a seven-run fifth.

Rua blasted a two-run home run to straight-away centerfield, in the second game that tied the game and officially become the Storm’s leading home run hitter of all-time.
