Highlands (12-5 overall) started its Saturday home game against St. Henry about 17 hours after starting the Friday evening game at Great American Ballpark at 8 p.m. The Bluebirds took out their frustrations of the 11-0 six-inning run-ruling loss to Covington Catholic on Friday with a 17-0 obliteration of the St. Henry Crusaders in five innings.
"That was our conversation (Friday) night," said Jeremy Baioni, Highlands Head Coach. "We felt it was a good thing we had a game at 1 p.m. so we could get right back at it and get that taste out of our mouth. Guys swung really well. We played good defense. (Junior pitcher) Grady Cramer pitched really well. Every guy contributed one way or another offensively or defensively. It was good to get back out there and go at it."
St. Henry fell to 2-7 overall. But one of those wins came Thursday over Covington Catholic, 6-4 in Erlanger.
Highlands has won four of the five games played in four days. The Bluebirds moved to 5-1 against 9th Region competition.
