From staff reports
Hie New Braunfels M^jcr League All-Stars, who are in a must win situation after falling to the loser's bracket in their first game at the Sectional tournament, did exactly wha they had to do last night against Balcones. They won.
Bradley George was the man in control for NB as he pitched the complete game 4-3 victory.
George was on his game all nightie he scattered five hits and struck out seven in his six innings of work.
Despite his great performance, the first inning was a shaky one for George. Balcones scored all three of their runs in the inning on a single and a pair of home runs.
But after that, George and the NB defense settled down and shut out the Balcones squad.
In the second inning, NB got the offense crankit j thanks to the swing of Jarred Fellers. Fellas led the inning off with a round-tripper.
That seemed to ignite the rest of the NB all-stars as Cody Reimer singled, George singled, Cody Ertoen singled to score Austin Herring who was pinch-running for Reimer, Ty Johnson then singled to score George.
Then Andy Schmid reached on a fielders choice and Erie Sultemeier aid Chip Adams walked, the second of which scored Johnson and sent NB ahead 4-3.
The rest of the game would be a pitchers duel. George got a single in the third inning but that would be all the offense NB saw the rest of the game.
Balconet would fair no better as George never had to face more than five batters in any one inning after the first. He finished the game by sulking out the side in the sixth inning.
In Saturday's game, Sultemeier went the distance on the mound giving up the four runs on seven hits in NB's 4-2 loss.
Erie Sultemeier of the New Braunfels Amerleen Major Leegue All-Store togo out a runner In Dietrlet action. NB won (Metric! end Ie J now two gamee away from winning Secttonale. They defeated Balconee 4-3 leat night and face Round Rook tonight at 6 pm
In that game, Balcones scored three runs in the second inning and never looked back. The three runs came on a home run. Balcones scored another run in the third inning before the NB defense took over, holding them scoreless the rest of the way.
Down 4-0 going into the final frame, NB was not about to go down easy as they rallied for a pair of runs before falling to Balcones.
Sultemeier started things off with a double and would later come around to score on a single from Jarred Fellers. Fellers then came in to score on some good baserunning and overthrows by Balcones.
Sunday afternoon, NB got five innings on
the mound from Ty Johnson and one from Bradley George in their 8-3 win.
The tone was set early as Kerrville loaded the bases in the fust inning, but were held scoreless as the NB defense tightened.
In the bottom of the first, NB scored four mils. Andy Schmid and Erie Sultemeier readied on errors and Chip Adams walked, before Fellers brought them in when he got on base on another Kerrville error.
NB pushed two more runs in the third inning as Adams walked and Fellers and Gay Coleman both singled.
In the fifth, NB scored two more runs on a double by Adams and a sacrifice fly by Cody
Reimer. Fellers scored on a base hit by Ryan* Mechler.
NB finished the game with eight runs on five I hits and four Kerrville errors. \

Lathon officially makes move from ’Backer to End
SAN ANTONIO (AP) — The experiment is over. Lamar Lathon is now a defensive end.
Lathon, a linebacker throughout his four seasons with the Houston Oilers, shuffled between linebacker and defensive end drills last week, but found himself permanently at defensive end on Monday.
A good performance in Saturday’s scrimmage against the Dallas Cowboys and thin depth a defensive end led to Lathon's change, and he's accepted the challenge to prove he’s up to the task.
“One way, I'll be behind and my stats may not ber good for the athlete I am, but secondly it looks goodi on my resume," Lathon said. "Here's a guy that can! play linebacker, drop in coverage and take on tack-! les and rush the passer." J
The Oilers have enough depth at linebacker to* enable Lathon to move to the sparse defensive end; group, which lost Sean Jones and William Fuller to* free agency and Lee Williams is slowed with a con-1 Uniting knee injury. !
