Fredericksburg roughs up Owls

Two huge innings -- a six-run third and a nine-run fifth -- carried the Fredericksburg Lady Billies to a 15-1 run-rule victory over the Hondo softball team Friday, March 20, at Martin Field.

The loss, played in a steady drizzle, dropped the Owls to 0-2 in District 29-AAAA play, heading into a Tuesday contest at Devine.

Fredericksburg made solid contact all night, collecting 15 hits, and getting help from seven Owl errors.

Hondo collected only two hits on the night, and they were instrumental in accounting for the Owls’ only run. Emily Bernal beat out an infield roller to lead off the fifth inning. After a walk and a hit batter, Alexis Martinez singled through the left side of the infield to drive in the run.

Arabians go deep in win over Hondo

Devine -- Three home runs in the first two innings helped Devine get out to a quick 10-0 lead, before the Arabians coasted home with a 13-3 win over Hondo in District 29-AAAA softball action on Tuesday, March 24.

The Owls (8-10-1 season, 0-3 district) will host Bandera on Friday, March 27, then will go to Lytle next Thursday, April 2, as district play continues. Both games start at 7 p.m.

Devine scored three runs in the first, then batted around in the second, scoring seven times.

Hondo got on the board in the top of the third. Kacie Dupont, who was 3-for-3 on the night, hit a one-out single, advanced to third on Emily Bernal’s single and scored on a wild pitch.

The Owls added two more in the top of the fifth. Dupont again singled with one away and moved to third on Bernal’s double. Both scored when Stephanie Zinsmeyer singled.

Devine ended the game with two runs in the bottom of the fifth. The 10-run rule went into effect with a no-out, bases-loaded walkoff single.
