The coach for the Licking Heights High varsity baseball team said he did everything he could think of to keep down the score, but his team still beat nearby Harvest Prep, 65-0, in only three innings — an onslaught that included 31 runs in the third. The game was called due to darkness.

It’s quite a time for premature celebrations in sports – first, the Great Penalty Kick Reversal of Fortune, and now, high school baseball heartbreak.
