It hasn't always been fun for Lake Zurich's baseball boys this spring. Not for Joey Holtz, either. Consider that the Bears junior second baseman had been getting ribbed by his team lately because his batting average, while on the rise, has continued to equal his slugging percentage. "No more," a smiling Holtz said Wednesday after helping Lake Zurich play the spoiler's role by beating visiting Stevenson 5-3 in North Suburban Lake Division action. The singles-hitting Holtz muscled up on a pitch in the second inning, hitting a tailing drive deep to right field. The ball bounced around on the warning track, as Holtz hustled to third with a standing triple. It was his first extra-base hit of the season.
