LAMP had led Holtville for the previous 10 innings of Friday’s doubleheader in the second round of the Class 4A playoffs, but the Bulldogs’ improbable sixth-inning rally for a 6-4 victory to force a third game in the series was the type of gut-wrenching loss that could tear a team apart.

Pruett Singleton drew a bases-loaded walk in the bottom of the seventh to force in fellow senior Sawyer Batson with the game-winning run and send LAMP into the quarterfinals for the first time since 2011. LAMP (18-13) will play host to Munford next Friday in a best-of-three series beginning on Friday at 4:30 p.m.
