TITLE RUN ENDS AT NB
Unicorns miss out on gold, earn silver medals at state championships
By Butch Hart
AUSTIN—The six-year title run at the UIL individual state tennis championships for the highly decorated New Braunfels team came to an end Tuesday.
But it was really close.
Beau and Liza Fieldsend went as far as possible without winning as the Unicorn brother-sister duo lost to Michael Reichmann and Katie Davis of Houston Memorial 5-7, 6-4, 7-6 then 8-6 in the tiebreaker.
“The match started ok and as it grew closer, both teams showed lots of nerves and in the end they made fewer mistakes,” said New Braunfels head coach David Mueller.
The Fieldsends took a comfortable first set win then fell in the second set and trailed 5-6 in the third set before breaking the Memorial serve to tie the set at 6-6.
In the tie-breaker phase, the Unicorns opened a 5-3 lead when Liza rocked a
shot off the backhand of Reichmann for the two point lead. Memorial rallied to tie at 5-5 but a Beau Fieldsend cut shot gave the Unicorns a 6-5 lead Memorial scored three straight points for game, set and match and 2011 mixed doubles Class 5A state championships at the University of Texas’ Penick-Allison Tennis Center.
“ Those are frustrating matches, both teams had the chance to win and both teams played with nerves on end, it was just a tough way to finish the season,” Mueller said.
The last time the Unicorns didn’t win an individual state title was back in 2005, when Ashley Turpin and RJ. Hen-drie both lost in the state finals.
Tanner Brown ran into a buzz saw in the men’s singles finals as University of Texas-signee Andrew Korinek of Mansfield beat Brown 6-2,6-2.
“He played really well and I just wasn’t able to pass him well enough to win,”

Lewis, Beltre lead Rangers past Athletics
ARLINGTON (AP) — Colby Lewis pitched neady into the eighth inning and the Texas Rangers got a two-run homer from slumping Adrian Beltre in a rain-delayed 7-2 victory over the Oakland Athletics on Tbesday night.
Lewis (3-4) allowed one run and five hits over 71-3 innings. He walked one and failed to register a strikeout for the Rangers, who had lost seven of nine and 11 of 15.
The right-hander got 16 outs on balls hit in the air and threw a season-high 115 pitches.
Beltre, who was given a night off Monday and had gone 4 for 31 over his previous nine games, connected in the fifth to chase starter Brett Anderson (2-3).
Beltre batted sixth for the first time this season as manager Ron Washington revamped his lineup after the Rangers hit .231 in their previous nine games. Beltre's first 35 starts this season had been at cleanup.
Texas’ Michael Young went 3 for 4 with a two-run triple in the sixth.
Bailey leads Cincinnati to 7-3 win over Houston
HOUSTON (AP) —Homer Bailey allowed five hits over seven scoreless innings, Jay Bruce had a two-run homer and Joey Votto drove in three runs and the Cincinnati Reds beat the Houston Astros 7-3 on Tliesday night.
Bailey (2-0), who made his 2011 debut last week against the Astros, struck out five with no walks to get his second win of the year.
Votto had doubles in both the first and second innings to drive in his runs and Bruce connected on his homer off Houston starter Brett Myers
in the first inning.
Myers (1-3) tied season highs by allowing 10 hits and six runs in six innings in his third straight loss. All of Cincinnati’s runs off Myers came in the first two innings and seven of the hits he allowed came in that span.
It was the first time Bailey, the 25-year-old Texan who started the season on the disabled list with tightness in his pitching shoulder, has played on the road against the Astros. He grew up and still makes his offseason home in La Grange.
