Swing sooner or earlier?

In baseball, if the batter keeps missing the pitch because the swing is late, do you say 'swing earlier' or 'swing sooner'?

If it is 'swing ealier', what would 'swing sooner' imply?

Any pointers on how to distinguish one from the other easily?

    "Swing sooner" would work as well in this circumstance, Brick, but the baseball lingo is "swinging late" and "swinging early".
