FREDERICKSBURG – A 10-run fourth inning by Fredericksburg dashed all hopes for the Kerrville Minors All-Stars to advance in District 26 tournament play Wedneday night, falling 13-9 in a season-ending loss.

Kerrville held Fredericksburg scoreless for the first two innings, while chalking up four runs and led 4-3 in the bottom of the third inning, but Fredericksburg's bats heated up in the bottom of the fourth, plating 10 runners on five hits.

Cristian Benevides scored on a passed ball during Kerrville’s first at-bat of the game. Denley Landrum stole home after reaching base on error, giving Kerrville a 2-0 lead.

Beck Winfield and Ridge Patrick scored while William Conklin was at the plate on Fredericksburg errors in the second inning.

Fredericksburg put three runs on the board in the bottom of the frame, giving Kerrville a slim 4-3 lead.

Then came the fourth inning, which ended with Kerrville trailing by nine runs.

Down 13-4 to begin the fifth inning of play, Harper Kothe connected on a single that allowed Landrum to score, but Kerrville was not able to chip away at Fredericksburg’s lead any further.

After retiring the first four Fredericksburg batters, Kerrville never gave up and managed to bring four more batters across the plate, but it wouldn’t be enough in their final offensive effort.

Jaden Lopez earned an RBI on a single that plated Conklin. Landrum ripped a single to left field that allowed Benevides to score and Josh Wheatfall hit into a fielder’s choice that brought Lopez and Landrum to home plate.

Benevides, Lopez, Landrum, Wheatfall, Andres Olguin and Conklin each recorded hits on the night for Kerrville. Landrum earned two RBIs, while Kothe, Wheatfall, and Lopez earned a single RBI each.

Benevides got the start on the mound and Landrum closed out the game, going one and fourth innings.

From the mound, Kerrville allowed 11 hits and struck out five batters.

The Kerrville Minors All-Stars bowed out of the district tournament with a 2-2 record.
