LAMPASAS – It was clear what had to be done. With two outs and the bases loaded in the bottom of the seventh inning of a tied game, Lampasas senior Kelsi Gilseth instantly went with her gut when, from her view at third base, she saw a wild pitch slip past Llano’s catcher.

The Lady Badgers catcher bolted for home plate and narrowly avoided being tagged out as she stole home to give Lampasas a 7-6 win over Llano on Wednesday after rain postponed the game Tuesday evening.

“I just knew that I had to get that run, so I just went for it,” Gilseth said. “It was a very close play, but I was safe and got underneath the tag.”

Gilseth accounted for one of Lampasas’ seven hits, finishing 1 for 2 with two RBIs, but first-year head coach Cassie Crabtree believes defense and determination were the catalysts for victory.

“Defensively, we were just on,” she said. “Tonight wasn’t one of our best games. We struggled at the plate and had a couple key walks that helped us out, but they just battled.”

The teams alternated runs all evening with the Lady Badgers falling into their first hole in the top of the fifth inning, when Llano produced three runs to claim a 4-3 advantage. But Lampasas (7-15, 1-1 8-3A) responded with two runs in the bottom half of the inning and each team added one run in the sixth before the Lady Jackets tied the game at 6-6 with a run in the top of the seventh inning.

Llano 7, Lampasas 4 — At Lampasas, the Badgers produced some solid hitting, but it was not enough to avoid a loss to open District 8-3A play Wednesday.

Lampasas senior Cullen Singleton was 3 for 4 with two RBI and a stolen base, while teammate Cutter Estep finished 2 for 4, including a double, and had a RBI. Ryan Baxter also went 2 for 4.
