LAMP’s magical run through the Class 4A playoff bracket came to a crashing halt at the hands of the defending state champions as the Golden Tigers ran out of gas and out of pitching on Friday afternoon at Paterson Field.

After battling UMS-Wright evenly through the first two games of the best-of-three semifinal series, the Tigers surrendered 11 unearned runs in an 18-0 loss to the Bulldogs that ended the season but did little to dampen their status as the region’s best team by reaching the semifinal round.

Connor Davis was hitting everything. Fastballs, curveballs, even opposing batters.

The Macon East Academy ace wasn’t at his best on the mound, hitting five opposing batters with pitches, but more than made up for it at the plate by scoring a run and driving in four more in the first game and scoring two more runs in the second game as the Knights swept Clarke Prep 8-4 and 6-0 in the Alabama Independent School Association Class AA state baseball championship at Paterson Field on Tuesday afternoon.
