KINGMAN - Kingman High returned to its home baseball field Thursday for senior day and almost pulled off its seventh win of the year.
With Prescott Valley Bradshaw Mountain's lead cut to 2-1, the Bulldogs had the tying run on second base with two outs, but they couldn't get that timely hit when they needed it.
"If we had some timely hits we would've won the ball game," said KHS coach Chad Baitinger.
The Bulldogs were forced to play Tuesday's game with Flagstaff Coconino at Lee Williams after vandals broke into the field at Kingman High and removed a brass fitting that was part of the irrigation system. That caused 27,000 gallons of water to pour onto the field, making it unplayable.
The grounds crew worked all day Wednesday and Thursday to improve the field.
"The field is better then it was before," Baitinger said. "The grounds crew did a pretty good job of fixing it."
Austin Sammeli pitched a complete game, giving up two runs on six hits. He walked five and struck out six.
Gage Humphreys had two hits, including a double, to lead the Bulldogs at the plate. Ryan Olivas added two hits and Ken Green had a hit.
KHS beat the Panthers 4-3 on Tuesday to improve to 6-14.
The Bulldogs will travel to Flagstaff for a doubleheader on Monday before closing out the season Tuesday in Lake Havasu. The Bulldogs will complete the game that was suspended on March 26.
