By THOMAS GODLEY
Having taken four close wins at home, New Braunfels Coach Neal Miller talked about the dangers of playing on the road.
He spoke of hostile crowds, unfamiliar ballparks, fired-up opponents and uncontrollable distractions.
None of that was evident Tuesday at Ranger Field where the Unicorns appeared right at home, connecting at the (date, playing solid defense and getting strong pitching in a 15-0 win over Smithson Valley.
At the midway point in the season, New Braunfels (5-0,11-5) is the district front-runner. Smithson Valley (0-5,6-1), going through spring break, has a week to heal some wounds.
Pitcher Hector Molina (4-1) went the entire five innings for the Unicorns, scattering three hits and throwing out four batters. His three-run homer over the Centerfield wall ignited a 9-run second inning that all but buried the Rangers.
The Unicorns finished with eight hits and no errors to Smithson Valley's three hits and five errors. Johnny Reyes went 2 for 3 with two doubles and a walk. Jeff Juarez, Grant Hill and Erie Martinez each had singles.
The Rangers sent three pitchers to the mound - Dusty Lowery, Sean Everest and

Cody Hartman. Matt Ramsey got an ear ly double, but the Rangers did not threaten again until the fifth when Sean Neal hit another double.
"I was fearful coming into this game, Miller said. "When Lowery is on he'4 tough. He had a strong game against Canyon and Canyon hit the ball well against us. So we were concerned. He struggled today, plus we hit die ball well;
"It's tough for them playing during spring break. We're riding a crest right now, and hopefully we can continue it"!
Ever cautious, Miller added that th4 Unicorns still have three more road games.

"It was tough," Hill said. "The ball kept hitting the front of the rim, and we weren’t rebounding, so we couldn't get into our game — running. We ran out of gas. We hit a wall."
