Derrick Stuckly / Brownwood Bulletin

FREDERICKSBURG — Having won five of their last six outings, the Brownwood Lions had built some much-needed positive momentum with the District 6-4A opener against the Mineral Wells Rams looming Tuesday night.

But the Fredericksburg Battlin’ Billies put a quick end to the Lions’ recent surge, posting a 13-0, five-inning victory over Brownwood Friday night.

The Lions (6-7) surrendered two runs in the first inning, five each in the second and third innings and a single run in the fourth.

Carson Cloy, Grant Fanara and Caden Judkins saw time on the mound for Brownwood.

Offensively, the Lions finished with three hits — one each by Fanara, Tristan Chesser and Graham Sharpe. Fanara also reached on an error while Carson Cloy, Mario Saldana and McLane Moore drew walks.

Brownwood’s best chance to score came in the second inning as Chesser reached on a one-out single then Moore and Saldana walked. With the bases loaded, Cloy was retired on a strikeout and Rawlings Rios grounded out to second base to end the threat.
