Idaho Falls Baseball sweeps Highland to claim 5A High Country championship

IDAHO FALLS, Idaho (KIFI) - The Idaho Falls Tigers are district champions after sweeping the Highland Rams at Melaleuca Field 5-2 and 8-3 Wednesday afternoon.

Game one was a pitcher's duel between the Tigers' Merit Jones and the Rams' Colton Sneddon in the early innings. But the Tigers struck for one in the third on an Eliot Jones RBI triple and four in the fifth inning to seal the victory.
