Prescott High's baseball team scored five runs in the first inning alone Tuesday afternoon and withstood a furious Bradshaw Mountain comeback attempt to claim a 10-6 upset victory over the Bears in Prescott Valley.

With the win, the Badgers (8-10 overall record) split the season series between the two cross-area rivals and snagged a big win in Division II, Section II play. Entering Tuesday, Bradshaw (13-7 overall) was ranked ninth in the D-II power points standings, while Prescott was 38th.

Prescott pitcher Daniel Schleicher picked up a complete-game victory, allowing six runs (three earned) on nine hits coupled with three strikeouts and four walks in seven innings of work.

Michael Pirante paced a PHS offense that pounded 15 total hits, going 2 for 4 with a double, a triple and 3 RBIs. J.J. Robertson (3 for 4, 3 RBIs), Brady Mengarelli (home run) and Schleicher (2 for 3) aided in the effort.

Bradshaw Mountain starter Tanner Hofferber surrendered eight runs, seven of which were earned, on nine hits en route to the loss. He fanned four batters and walked only one.

In the first inning, Prescott rolled to a 5-0 lead thanks in large part to five straight hits after the leadoff batter reached on an error.

After falling behind 7-2 in the top of the fourth, Bradshaw bounced back with four runs in the home half of the frame by taking advantage of two PHS errors to pull within one, 7-6. But the Badgers pulled away with a run apiece in the fifth, sixth and seventh innings as Schleicher shut out the Bears.

"Leading 7-6 in the fourth inning, Daniel worked his way out of trouble by forcing a couple of key double plays," Prescott coach John Irish said. "Daniel was effective and he bore down."

On the other hand, BMHS coach Randy Clifford said his hurlers were "not competitive" with their "secondary pitches" and that hurt his team throughout the contest.

"We didn't have our off-speed stuff, and they teed off on the fastball," he said. "We were one-dimensional."

At the plate, Dallas Clifford led Bradshaw with a 3 for 3 performance and 2 RBIs. Brent Dreibelbis was 2 for 3 with a triple and two runs scored, and Brody Clifford had an RBI single.

With the loss, the Bears dipped to 13-7 overall and will play host to Glendale Apollo at 3:45 p.m. next Wednesday.

Prescott, meanwhile, has 10 power point games left on its schedule. The Badgers play host to Camp Verde at 4 p.m. Thursday.

Softball

Prescott High pitcher Megan Mendibles tossed a complete-game shutout Tuesday at Pioneer Park, as the Badgers softball team cruised to a 6-0 win over rival Bradshaw Mountain.

Mendibles notched a whopping 11 strikeouts and scattered four hits in leading Division II No. 11-ranked PHS to its sixth straight victory and a 15-6 overall record, according to maxpreps.com.

At the plate for Prescott, Alyse Janosko (1 for 1, HR, 3 RBI), Mendibles (2 for 4), Reeda McCarty (1 for 4, RBI), Gracie Lackey (1 for 2), Kristina Mazzella (1 for 3, double), Tianna Chapple (1 for 3), Tory Bigelow (1 for 3) and Abby Boaz (1 for 3) all contributed.

For Bradshaw Mountain, starting pitcher Terra Stults took the loss on the slab, allowing six runs on nine hits in six innings. She did not issue any walks and struck out one.

The Bears (10-9 overall) struggled offensively facing Mendibles, as only Kristen Jensen, Karrah Stults, Kassidy Lynch and Terra Stults managed a hit.

Prescott is not scheduled to play again until next Monday in a rematch with Bradshaw Mountain in Prescott Valley. First pitch is slated for 3:45 p.m.

BMHS will lock horns with Payson at 6 p.m. Wednesday on the road.
