KINGMAN - The Kingman South Little League 10-11 All Star team left no doubt as to who the best squad at the District 9 tournament in Parker could be. South dominated Blythe, Calif., Friday to win the championship, 24-0.

South (4-0) opened the game with a nine-run first inning and a 12-run second inning and then sat back and watched Gabe Imus throw a gem.

"It was a beat down, that's for sure," said South manager Jack Morris. "Our bats all got hot at the same time. It was hit after hit - it was crazy."

South belted out 22 base hits in the four-inning game. Garrett Diem led the team with four. Ganner Morris, Wyatt Hall, Imus and Zach McCray each had three. Brady Clark and Kory Hines Jr. had two, and Charlie Anderson and Rye Samson each had one.

"That was the performance we've been waiting for," Morris said. "We knew the boys had it in them, but the bats hadn't come around. They sure did Friday."

Imus didn't allow Blythe even a chance to think about mounting a comeback.

"Gabe came out a pitched a great top of the first," the coach said. "You could see in the kids' faces they had confidence after that."

Imus pitched four innings and allowed two singles. He struck out seven with no walks. He did all that on just 39 pitches in the mercy-rule shortened game.

"They weren't going to hit Gabe," Morris said.

South now starts preparing to represent District 9 at the Arizona State 10-11 Baseball tournament that begins July 15 in Tucson.
