SPARTA — Ethan Beckett was a man on a mission.

When the Highland Scots walked Kasson Krownapple to get to the East Knox senior Monday, Beckett remembered the slight.

He made them pay Thursday.

Beckett smacked a double and drove in three runs, then stepped to the pitcher’s mound and struck out three of the four batters he faced to help the Bulldogs to a 7-0 victory over Highland.
