Rockwall-Heath beats Highland Park again, 5-1; advances to semi-finals


HIGHLAND PARK-Drew VerHagen homered for the third straight game and James Baune pitched a six-hitter as the Rockwall Yellow Jackets defeated District 10A rival  Highland Park again, 5-1, last night to win their best-of-three game series and advance to the Class 4A Region II semi-finals next week.

The Yellow Jackets beat the Scots, 17-10, Thursday night at Highland Park.

Drew Baxter also homered for Heath, which only managed five hits against losing pitcher Crayton Bare. Doubles by John Branum and Garrett Childers, plus one single, were all the Hawks could manage, but they were enough.

Highland Park’s Bryan Dickenson homered for the Scots only run.

The semi-final game opponent and date will be announced next week.
