The Kerrville Majors All-Stars put up a fight, but were unable to overcome a Boerne lead Friday night at Ingram Little League fields, falling 12-9 in a District 26 elimination game, which ended the season for the local sluggers.

Boerne recorded seven runs in the second inning, while Kerrville only crossed the plate twice, leaving them to chase the lead the rest of the game.

Kerrville held strong at the plate, knocking in six runs over the next two innings to tie the game, but Boerne erupted in the fifth inning to recapture the lead and Kerrville could not hold on.

The two teams met three times during the tournament and split victories were decided by only one point each game prior to Friday night’s match up.

Ben Yoder put Kerrville on the board with an RBI single that plated Peyton Middleton and a triple by Tyler Langbein brought in Yoder in the bottom of the second inning, bringing the score to 7-2.

Joe Zabala walked across the plate during Domynik Vasquez’ at-bat and  Middleton connected on a double to score Noah Collins and Vasquez in the bottom of the third inning, whittling down Boerne’s lead to 7-5.

Kerrville held Boerne to only one run in the top of the fouth inning and added three more run to knot the score 8-8 in the bottom of the frame.

Darren Dominguez blasted a homerun on a line drive to center field and Middleton ripped a two-bagger to plate Johnson and Iric Foster.

Boerne upped their score by four runs before Kerrville could retire their offense in the top of the fifth inning and were not able to reciprocate at the plate.

The Kerrville defense stood their ground, denying Boerne any more runs in the sixth and final inning, but when it was their turn to bat in the bottom of the frame, Kerrville only managed a single run that came off the bat of Collins, who finished his season with a homer to center field.

Kerrville ended the night with 13 hits, while Boerne only managed 11.

Middletown went 4-for-4 at the plate and earned four RBIs. Johnson had two hits on three at-bats, while Collins finished with two hits and one RBI.

Also recording hits for Kerrville were Myles McDaniels, Vasquez, Yoder, Langbein and Dominguez.

Middleton, Collins, Johnson, McDaniels and Diego Benevides shared duties on the mound, collectively allowing 11 hits, recording 11 strikeouts and only walking six batters.
