KINGMAN - There were buckets of base hits and mountains of miscues from both teams, but it was the Kingman Academy softball team that came out on top over Sedona Red Rock Thursday at Centennial Park, 14-12.

The two teams combined for 34 base hits and 12 errors in the scoring fest. Red Rock trailed 14-7 to start the top of the seventh, but the Scorpions five-run rally fell two short.

"That was ugly," said KAHS coach Amber Freed.

Kingman Academy is now 3-0, but the Lady Tigers have surrendered 30 runs in those wins. When asked if she was concerned about letting the opponents score 10 runs per game on average, the coach said she was.

"If we score more runs than they do, it doesn't concern me," Freed said tongue in cheek. "Of course it concerns me, but we are hitting the ball."

While the Lady Tigers are giving up those 10 runs per game, they have put 38 on the board for nearly 13 runs on average.

Kingman Academy jumped out to an 8-2 lead over Red Rock (1-1) after three innings. The Lady Tigers scored twice in the first on two unearned runs and three each in the next two innings. In the second, Kingman Academy strung together six singles, and in the following inning, Kiersten Kinsey doubled in Alexis McDade, and Madison McKowan's single drove in Ashteyn Whirlow and Kinsey.

Kinsey went 4-for-4 and scored three runs. She also made a spectacular play defensively at second base when she dove to her right to snare a groundball that saved at least two runs had it leaked into the outfield. She then flipped the ball to shortstop Tara Sherwood for a force out.

"That was a great play," Freed said.

Both teams scored a run in the fourth. Red Rock came alive in the

fifth with four runs, but the Lady Tigers answered with five in the bottom half to extend the lead, 14-7.

Kylie Tomlinson doubled for Kingman Academy, and Red Rock helped the Lady Tigers' cause by committing two errors and issuing a walk in the fifth.

Tomlinson knocked in five runs and went 2-for-4 with three runs scored.

McDade went 3-for-4 with two RBIs, and McKowan was 2-for-3 with two RBIs.

Abbie Boss started and picked up the win for Kingman Academy. She went 4-2/3 innings and gave up five earned runs on 10 hits and nine walks. She struck out four.

Tomlinson earned the save. She relieved Boss in the fifth and pitched 2-1/3 innings, surrendering two earned runs on eight hits and one walk. She sat down two Scorpions.

Kingman Academy travels to Parker (0-2) to face the Broncs at 3:45 p.m. Tuesday.
