HS Baseball: Rattlers can’t adjust in loss
SAN ANTONIO — The San Marcos Rattlers knew they were in store for a tough challenge against San Antonio-Johnson in Thursday’s first game of a Class 5A, bi-district playoff series.
Adjusting to Mother Nature, in all likelihood, wasn’t in the initial equation.
With an unusually strong, cold and steady wind blowing outwards from the northwest, San Marcos couldn’t get things going in the right direction in a 7-4 loss to the Jaguars at Blossom Field.
The Rattlers didn’t generate much early offense and were also hindered by a number of defensive miscues, while Johnson was able to come though with timely hits and a steadfast defense, led by right-hander Jerod Vick.
