CLEVELAND — Even with the tremendous zip on the fastball for Buford lefty Jake Higginbotham, it was the knee-buckling curveball that got him out of trouble and preserved a 7-0 win against White County on Wednesday in Cleveland. Higginbotham, a junior, recorded a season-high 14 strikeouts, twice pitched around giving up a leadoff extra-base hit and didn’t allow a walk for top-ranked Buford (15-0, 11-0 Region 7-AAA). The Clemson commit got all the run support he needed with five runs as the Wolves batted around in the top of the first inning.
