High School Baseball: Rattlers try to rebound, host New Braunfels
Even though the Rattlers entered District 25-5A play with the best overall record in the district San Marcos head baseball coach Bryan Webb wasn’t too distraught about Tuesday night’s 3-0 district-opening loss at Smithson Valley.
The Rattlers were limited to only three hits against the Rangers, after entering the game as the league’s top-hitting team. But San Marcos couldn’t find a way to connect against Smithson Valley starter Cole McKay, one of the nation’s top-ranked sophomore pitchers, suffering its first shutout loss of the season.
San Marcos will try to bounce back from Tuesday’s loss with a 7 p.m. home game tonight against New Braunfels.
"It was just one of those nights," Webb said. "They made the plays when they needed to and we didn’t and we’ll get another chance at them at our place. Now, we just have to regroup and get ready for New Braunfels tonight."
