Lake Highlands of Texas wins big again, but not by 50 runs

Baseball fans may find this item of interest from the Associated Press:

Richardson Lake Highlands of Texas only needed 13 runs to rout Dallas Samuell this time.

In a rematch of the most lopsided prep baseball game in Texas history, Lake Highlands defeated Samuell 13-0 on Friday night, according to The Dallas Morning News.

A month ago, the final score was either 53-0, according to the scoreboard, or 57-0, by the winning coach's tally. Either way, the outcome renewed discussions of sportsmanship in high school athletics.

On Friday, Lake Highlands coach Jay Higgins played substitutes early in the game and used all his players. He also brought up two players from the junior varsity.
