Wednesday in preparation for Thursdays game with Dripping Springs Fuller will be the starting pitcher for Smithson Valley in the 4A quarterfinal round of regional playoffs at South West Texas State University Games begin at BY MIKE MOGUIN Sports Editor When you look in the mirror you know the first thing you see is you Thats what the Smithson Valley baseball team sees a mirror image of itself as it looks at its next opponent Dripping Springs From what Ive heard theyre like pitcher J D Reininger said Smithson Valley 2261 No 10 in the state and Dripping Springs 285 No 7 are scheduled to square off in a best twooutof three series in the Class 4A Baseball Regional Quarterfinal playoff round Games 1 and 2 will be played at today and Friday at Bobcat Field on the cam pus of Southwest Texas State University in San Marcos If the teams split the first two games a Game 3 will be played at 1 Saturday at Bobcat Field They have some role players in their lineup who can said Smithson Valley coach Matt Gustafson They like to hit run and squeeze and that sounds just K JESSIE Reininger umps while Kyle Mandelbaum catches dur ing a break at Wednesdays Ranger practice Reininger will pitch in Fridays matchup with Dripping Springs like The Tigers will provide the biggest challenge of any team the Rangers have played all season They seem to have a few trick plays and Im sure theyll try to take away our pitcher Cody Fuller said Leading hitters for Dripping Springs are Wade Townsend with a batting average of 435 Bryan Herrera 397 Brian Hendrickson 358 Matt Hightower 326 and Nick Sloan and Tony Salazar each of whom stand at 313 Dripping Springs which advanced to the regional quarterfi nal round after sweeping Hays last week also has a solid pitching staff Gustafson said They have a righthander in Townsend 32 who throws as hard as Bradley George Canyon pitch Their No 2 guy is a lefty Herrera who I feel is their best pitcher and mixes the ball well and hits his spots I think what youll see is two teams who are similar except their overall advantage is Fuller 82 and Reininger 81 are in the pitching rotation for the playoffs Fuller will start todays game while Reininger is scheduled for Fridays game Both Fuller and Reininger played big roles in each of Smithson See Rangers sweep Devil Rays ARLINGTON AP Frank Catalanotto had a careerhigh five hits and Ivan Rodriguez went
