KINGMAN - The Prescott Badgers defeated the Kingman High baseball team in a Division II, Section 5 contest during a windy home game Friday at KHS, 4-2.
The Badgers came out strong with one run in the first inning, two in the third, and one in the fourth. The Kingman (3-7, 0-3 S5) defense held Prescott (7-3, 3-0 S5) off in the fifth, helped by a slick double play by second baseman Tyler Julle and first baseman Lukas Butler.
Prescott reciprocated in the bottom of the fifth by throwing out a runner on first, then a runner stealing third, but the Bulldogs got on the scoreboard in the sixth inning with two runs.
Kingman hosts Wickenburg at 3:45 p.m. Monday in a non-section game that include the resumption of the teams' suspended game from March 24 with the score tied 3-3.
