Baseball falls at Wimberley 11-1

Sitting at 1-3 after four District 27-3A contests, the Fredericksburg High School varsity baseball team will host Bandera Friday and Canyon Lake Tuesday. First pitch in both games is slated for 7 p.m.

The Billies fell on the road to Wimberley 11-1 Tuesday night.

“We are struggling at the plate. Once again, we left too many runners on base,” head coach Derrick Dietrich said. “We had our chances the first three innings to scratch a run or two across but couldn’t get it done. We are getting people on base but that does us no good if we can’t get them across the plate.”
