KINGMAN - Twenty-four hours after falling into the losers' bracket of the 9-10 District 9 All Star tournament, Kingman North stormed back with a 12-2 win over Parker Wednesday night at Southside Park.

North jumped out to an early 4-0 lead in the bottom of the first inning a day after scoring just one run in a 4-1 loss to Kingman South.

"That right there was very important - to come out hard and to hammer the ball and put up some runs early," said North manager Clem Caron. "They rose to the occasion today. I think they were hungry after their loss yesterday. They knew what they had to do. They stepped up for four innings and put it away."

North added three more runs in the second inning to take a 7-1 lead and ended the game in the fourth because of the 10-run mercy rule by scoring five more runs.

Cole Cobanovich led North at the plate with two hits, including a triple in the second inning, and scored three runs. Chris Caron had a double and three runs scored and Luigi Garibaldi had three hits and scored twice.

North is just one of four teams that remained in the tournament and played Lake Havasu South on Thursday. Havasu eliminated Blythe on Wednesday. The winner will play the loser of Thursday's Kingman South and Yuma West game - both teams are 2-0 in the tournament.

"It was a hard loss," Caron said of Tuesday's game against South. "We know the coaching and we know the baseball players. It's obviously your other home team. I just hope we can meet up with them again. That's where I'm looking."

Before Caron gets his wish, he needed to get past Havasu, and he was expected to start Chris Caron. Chris nearly threw a perfect game Saturday in the North's 14-0 win over Needles. Chris was perfect through the first three innings, retiring the first nine hitters he faced. He ended the game retiring 12 of 13 batters and gave up a hit to the leadoff batter in the fourth inning.

"It's getting tougher. The farther you go, the tougher the competition," Caron said. "We will try to save pitching the best we can, but if you have to go deeper, we will go deeper. It's all or nothing now."
