Brown one-hits Parker, and Kingman wins

KINGMAN - Derek Brown pitched a one-hitter to lead the Kingman Bulldogs past Parker Tuesday at KHS, 8-0.

Brown threw a complete game for the win. He limited the Broncs to a lead-off single in the fourth inning and he hit a batter in the first. Brown struck out five in seven innings of work.

"Brown threw a gem. The offense was clicking," said KHS baseball coach Chad Baitinger. "Pinto has proven he can hit the ball hard."

Junior catcher Anthony Pinto went 4-for-4 with two doubles and he scored twice. Center fielder Kurtis Toledo singled and scored two runs, and third baseman Luke Ness crossed the plate three times.

Kingman (1-0) next plays River Valley in the 2016 Kingman High School Baseball Invitational Baseball Tournament at 9 a.m. today at KHS. The three-day tournament ends with the championship game at 1 p.m. Saturday.


At Buckeye Verrado, the KHS boys and girls team each had rough outings Tuesday. Verrado won both matches, 9-0. The boys team hosts Northland Prep at 3:30 p.m. today, and the Lady Bulldogs host Northland Prep at 3:30 p.m. Friday.
