KINGMAN – It was another close game Monday night, but unfortunately another tough loss for the Kingman Academy High School baseball team.

The Tigers appeared on their way to a victory after taking a late lead on the road, but instead dropped a heartbreaking 3-2 loss to Bagdad.

Kaden Bean gave Academy a 2-1 advantage in the top of the sixth on a RBI double to score Ryan Hurley. But the Sultan responded with two runs in the bottom half of the frame – one of which was scored on an error.

Wyatt Hall was dealt the loss after yielding no earned runs on three hits with six strikeouts and no walks in 2 2/3 innings of work. Bean started the game and allowed one earned run with five strikeouts and four walks in 3 1/3 innings.

Hurley led the Tigers with three hits and two runs scored, while Braden Judd added two hits and Bean tallied Academy’s lone RBI of the game.

The Tigers (1-2, 1-0 3A West Region) welcome Northland Prep (0-0) to town at 1:30 p.m. Thursday for a doubleheader.
