Even when plays didn’t unfold the way Lambert head coach Jamie Corr intended, somehow they still worked together to aid the Longhorns’ comeback. Billy Whitlock never heard Corr yelling for him to ask the umpire for time at the plate, but the communication failure mattered little seconds later when Lambert was celebrating on the field. Whitlock stayed in the batters box but pulled back his bunt attempt in the bottom of the seventh, resulting in a passed ball that allowed Jeremy Johnson to race home from third and give the Longhorns a 4-3 comeback victory over rival South Forsyth on Friday at Lambert.
