Headline in poor taste

I was offended by the headline “Woman goes to bat in domestic violence case.”
According to the dictionary, for those who do not know the phrase, to go to bat for someone means “to support someone when the person needs help.”
This story is about a woman who is accused of attacking a man with a baseball bat while he slept, and I think it is hardly an appropriate topic for humor or puns.
