Burnet baseball edges Llano 10-9; softball wins 12-1


BURNET — A double play ended a wild game with the Burnet High School baseball team getting a 10-9 win against Llano on March 25 in District 8-3A action.

After the Yellow Jackets took a 1-0 lead in the third inning, the Bulldogs (10-7-3 overall, 3-0 district) responded with six runs in their half of the inning.

But Llano wasn’t done. Instead, the Jackets (2-1 district) scored a run in the fifth and five in the sixth for a 7-6 lead.

Burnet added four runs in the bottom half of the inning for a 10-6 advantage going into the final inning.

The Yellow Jackets didn’t concede the game, however, plating two runs during their last at-bat. And when it looked like they would tie the game with the bases loaded and only one out, the Bulldogs took away those hopes with a double play to end the contest.

Burnet recorded eight hits and six errors, while Llano had nine hits and three errors.

ON OFFENSE: (Burnet) RBIs – Ben Rundzheir 2, Garrett Cox 2.

ON DEFENSE: Winning pitcher – Cameron Chafin; save – Taylor Barksdale. Losing pitcher – Chance Ware

QUOTABLE: “The guys continue to play with a lot of heart and an unwavering will to win,” Burnet head coach Stephen Shipley said.

RECORDS: Burnet is 10-7-3 overall and 3-0 in District 8-3A; Llano is 2-1.
