A third game turned out to not be necessary for Fredericksburg High School baseball, as the Billies swept Pearsall in two games in the bi-district playoffs. The Billies came from behind to win the first game, 7-6, on Friday, May 6, and then won the second game the next day, 10-3.

Fredericksburg’s next opponent comes from South Texas: Robstown.

FHS 7, Pearsall 6 Game 1 PHS 2 2 0 0 1 0 1 – 6 FHS 1 1 0 0 0 2 3 – 7 Things for the Billies looked uncertain at first, as Pearsall jumped out to a 4-2 lead after two innings in their first game, Friday evening, May 6.

Trailing 6-4 in the final inning, the Billies answered with three runs to take the lead and victory in the seventh inning, 7-6.

“We took advantage of some costly walks by Pearsall,” said Coach Derrick Dietrich. “I thought our kids did a great job being patient and taking what they were given.”
