KINGMAN - Baseball games typically don't end in ties unless it's a meaningless spring training game or, in the case of Kingman High, darkness.

Down 5-2 to Lake Havasu and heading into the bottom of the seventh inning, the Bulldogs scored three runs to tie the game and played on until the late Tuesday afternoon sun disappeared behind Bull Mountain - suspending the game for a later date and time.

"We should've won the game in the seven-inning span," KHS coach Chad Baitinger said. "We had four unearned runs, but we came back and fought back and I feel like we could win this game when we resume it."

The game will be picked up at later date with Havasu batting in the top of the 10th inning.

KHS (3-7) took an early 1-0 lead in the first inning and added a run in the second inning. Havasu took a 3-2 lead in the top of the third inning and added two runs in the top of the sixth inning.

Bulldog starting pitcher Austin Sammeli pitched seven innings, giving up five runs with one run earned on six hits while striking out two and walking three.

It was a pitching performance that Baitinger had high praise for.

"It was awesome," he said. "He threw ground balls all day and he held us in the game."

Taylor Savage relived Sammeli and pitched the eighth and ninth innings, including getting out of a situation in the top of the ninth with a runner at third and one out.

Ken Green led the Bulldogs at the plate with two hits, including a double and a run scored.

KHS travels to Prescott Valley Bradshaw Mountain today and will host River Valley on Friday.

The Bulldogs are no stranger to this sudden death baseball.

Last year, KHS had a game against Flagstaff Coconino suspended after 11 innings and a 5-5 tie.

Coconino returned to Kingman eight days later and 40 minutes after it started, it was over with Coconino winning 8-7 in 12 innings.
