Rough night for the Rattlers against Smithson Valley
It seemed as if Tuesday night’s District 25-5A game between San Marcos and Smithson Valley was on its way to becoming another defensive showdown after four innings.
Smithson Valley held a 2-1 lead after the second inning, as both teams came through with several standout defensive plays that kept the score low.
But that all changed in the top of the fifth, as two SMHS errors and three walks helped Smithson Valley post four runs in the inning on its way to a 7-1 win at Rattler Field.
“They’re good,” SMHS head coach Bryan Webb said. “Give them credit. They took advantage of our mistakes and shut us down when they had to.”
