Richburg homers to lift Tigers past Lake View

Coming up: Frenship plays at 6:30 p.m. as it heads to Plainview today for its second district game. The Tigers continue District 4-4A play when they play at 4:30 p.m. Tuesday at Big Spring.

Record: 13-9 (1-0 in district)

Looking Back: Frenship opened District 4-4A with a 10-5 win over San Angelo Lake View Tuesday at Tiger Field.

• The Tigers entered the sixth inning tied at 3-3. Taylor Read sparked Frenship’s offense by getting on with a bunt single to third base.

• Tyler Lloyd followed with a triple to center field, then Chris Van Gilder hit a single to center field. Clay Lyons followed Van Gilder’s hit with an RBI single.

• Lake View changed pitchers and brought in Josh Varquera for John David Baker. Jordan Richburg adjusted to the new pitching quickly as he hit a two-run home run to left field. Trey Whaley was hit by the following pitch and Brian Matthews followed with a walk.

• Frenship’s sixth-inning surge was enough for pitcher Aaron Wampler to earn the win. Wampler recorded six strikeouts in six innings.

Quotables: “We did not have a very good mental approach at the beginning,” said Chad Reynolds, Frenship head coach. “Our guys picked up that their pitcher was having a little trouble with his curveball and they sat back on the fastball. They did a good job of putting the bat on the ball.”
