The Marble Falls High School baseball team used the final day of spring break to get back into the baseball mindset with an out-of-district loss to Fredericksburg by a score of 4-2.

In District 17-5A, every team gets a bye week, and the Mustangs' came during spring break. Head coach Russell Reichenbach wanted a refresher before continuing district play on Tuesday.

“We wanted to get a game situation and see live pitching,” he said. “We wanted to make sure we didn't take a full 10 days off from playing an actual game. Fredericksburg is a good program, so hopefully we stay game-ready.”

The Mustangs played competitive defense for five half-innings, but a three-run bottom of the fourth inning cost them the game against the Billies. An inside-the-park home run followed by an RBI double resulted in a 4-0 deficit for the Mustangs entering the top of the fifth inning.

The Marble Falls baseball team took the lead in the top of the final inning in a 5-4 win against Lampasas on Thursday as part of the Lampasas tournament, but the Mustangs were eliminated in the first game on Saturday.

The Mustangs have developed a bit of a rivalry with the Badgers since head coach Russell Reichenbach took over last season. Thursday's game was close throughout, and Reichenbach said it was a good simulation of district baseball.

“Last year, we made it a point to play against each other,” he said. “We're always competitive. To play a well-coached team and find a way to come out on top is huge for us.”
