BULLHEAD CITY — The Southwest High School baseball team picked up one win in four games at the Mojave Valley tournament here this weekend.
The Eagles hammered Joseph City 11-1 in their first game, but the win was the only one Southwest would get in the tournament. The Eagles dropped their next two games, falling to Payson 10-0 and Page 5-4. The Eagles finished play with a 2-2 tie with Sinagua of Flagstaff.
"I thought we would play better," said Southwest coach Mickey Carter. "We broke out offensively in the first game. In the last game we played with a lot of intensity and fire. I hope that's a sign of things to come."
David Cordova had two hits, including a home run, and four RBIs in the Eagles' win over Joseph City. Frank Richards picked up the win, striking out five in three innings. Eric Flores added two hits, three runs and three RBIs to the Southwest cause against Joseph City.
