A big fifth inning, fueled by a left field homer by Domynik Vasquez, gave the Kerrville Majors All-Stars their first lead of the game, a lead they would build to take a win Monday night at Ingram Little Fields, defeating a combined Lakehills-Pipe Creek team 14-7 in District 26 Little League All-Star action.

Lakehills-Pipecreek jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the first inning and continued to dominate until the fourth inning.

With McDaniels on the mound, Kerrville struck out three of four batters to hold Lakehills-Pipe Creek at bay in the bottom of the frame.

Taking control of the momentum in the game, Kerrville mounted a two-out rally that resulted in a 9-6 lead in the fifth inning.

Johnson singled to tie the game 6-6 on with an RBI that plated Dominguez. Vasquez’ homerun allowed Johnson and Ben Yoder to cross the plate, giving Kerrville a 9-6 lead.

Lakehills-Pipe Creek added a single run when they returned to the plate, but would not score again.

A triple in the top of the sixth inning by Zabala brought Tyler Langbein across the plate to up the score to 10-7.

Yoder hit into a fielder’s choice that allowed Zabala to add a run. Diego Benevides earned an RBI on a single. Noah Collins ripped a double to plate Benevides and Vasquez.
