KINGMAN - As Mohave Valley was taking the field in the bottom of the sixth inning, the public address announcer said that Kingman starter Paul Giglio was at 90 pitches.

Mohave's players breathed a sigh of relief.

Giglio had kept Mohave hitless through six innings Wednesday night at the District 9 13-14 All Star tournament and carried the no-hitter into the seventh, where struck out his eighth batter to max out his pitches with 95.

"I had to get ahead of hitters and throw strikes and trust my defense," Giglio said.

Bryndon Buckley relieved him and got Austin Colston looking for the second out before walking Daniel Garica.

Austin Rice broke up the no-hitter with a hit that dropped in front of right fielder Chad Moore and two batters later, Buckley picked up the save by preserving a 4-3 win to send Kingman to Thursday's title game at Southside Park.

"That's two in a row. Kannon (Butler) had a heck of a pitching effort on Monday, even though we lost. We just couldn't get any hits together," said Kingman manager Brien Giglio. "We've had two nice pitching performances in a row. Now we are starting to swing the bats."

Kingman struggled at the plate in Monday's 3-0 loss to Lake Havasu, but Wednesday was a different story as the home team scored all its runs in the second inning to give Giglio all the run support he would need.

Giglio retired the side and pitched out a of a lead off walk in the second inning and pitched out of a jam in the third inning.

"He kept his walks to a minimum and got some ground balls and let his defense do the work. He did a good job," Brien Giglio said.

Kingman shortstop Derek Brown preserved the no-hitter by picking off Colston's line drive in the fifth. However, Mohave would plate two runners later in the inning by taking advantage of a pair of errors by Giglio and later added their third run in the seventh.

Kingman played Havasu Thursday for the tournament championship. With Butler and Giglio done with pitching, Brien Giglio was expected to either turn to Buckley, Matt Shaw or Colin McMullen.

"In these types of tournaments after you lose the first game you just have to get there. There is no tomorrow," Brien Giglio said. "I have confidence in the pitching that we have left."
