Winnfield baseball home Friday, Saturday in state playoffs

Winnfield Senior High School opens the LHSAA Non-Select Division III baseball playoffs at home Friday, starting a best-of-three second-round series against visiting Westlake.

The Tigers, seeded eighth, and the No. 9 Rams collide at 6 o’clock Friday evening at WSHS, then play game two Saturday morning at 11. If a third game is necessary to send the series winner to the state quarterfinals, it will take place at 1 Saturday afternoon.

The other parish team in postseason, Calvin High School, had its season stopped in a 14-inning battle. The No. 12 Bulldogs carried a 2-all tie into the 14th but No. 21 Holden broke loose for eight runs and recorded a 10-2 triumph.
