Swing Away ... in May

From 2012 00 Miscellaneous

The Lake Highlands HS Wildcat baseball team extended their season with a wild win over McKinney Boyd in the second game of their three game series Friday night. Just how wild was it? I dunno. I left in the second inning when rain started to fall. Lake Highlands was trailing 2-0. Apparently, the serious rain missed the ball field, allowing the teams to get the game in. Judging from these tweets, it sounds like it was a game to stick around for:

RT @GreggCalvin: "Yes please! That's how you do it! #Game3 at McKinney Boyd tomorrow at 12 o'clock"

RT @rthomas422: "Ahh crazy game! Game 3 at Boyd tomorrow at 12. #lhbaseball"

Update: From The Dallas Morning News: "Lake Highlands 4, McKinney Boyd 3: Lake Highlands scored three runs in the bottom of the seventh [high schools play seven innings], capped by an RBI single by Colton Bradley, to even the best-of-3 series at one win apiece. Game 3 is set for noon Saturday at McKinney Boyd."

Depending on who you believe, Lake Highlands won the deciding game in their series with McKinney Boyd either 4-3 (DMN) or 8-6 ( Either way, congrats to the Wildcats for never giving up. Good luck in the next round.

P.S. Assign someone to tweet scores or update the Wildcat baseball website with the results, please. ;-)

With all due respect, I should not have trusted the score posted by The Dallas Morning News. They have now corrected it. LHHS 8, McKinney Boyd 6.

According to a tweet from the Temple HS Wildcats (I know... confusing), "Wildcat Baseball will face Lake Highlands in the Area Playoffs. Game 1 Friday at Temple- 7:30, Games 2&3 at Lake Highlands - Saturday- 1:00"
