Prescott 7

Air Academy 3

The Badgers defeated the Air Academy (Colo.) Kadets, 7-3, in a consolation game of the Coach Bob National Invitational on Thursday to conclude tournament play in Phoenix with a 5-2 record.

Pitcher Cole Fairbairn picked up the victory over the Kadets, allowing three runs in four innings.

All three runs came in the first inning, as Fairbairn struggled with command and had a throwing error. But Fairbairn settled down over the next three innings, shutting out the Kadets while retiring nine of the next 11 batters he faced.

The Badgers rallied in the top of the second to take a 5-3 lead that was bolstered by two Kadets errors.

Prescott's Eric Aranda added a solo home run in the third, and reliever Jayce Cirzan came on in the fifth to shut down the Kadets for the eventual save after three innings of work. Cirzan allowed two hits while striking out four and walking none.

On Wednesday, the Badgers beat the Highlands Ranch (Colo.) Falcons, 6-1, to finish pool play.

Prescott's Austin Barrett pitched a complete game, allowing only one run on five hits while striking out four and walking none. At the plate, Bryan Smith was 2-for-3 with a double and two RBIs.

Smith's RBI single in the sixth snapped a 1-1 tie. Garrett Schulz broke open the game in the same inning with a two-run single through a drawn-in infield. Barrett then proceeded to dominate on the mound, retiring six of the next seven batters to earn the victory.

Jacob Eder led Prescott offensively at the invite, hitting .391 with 10 RBIs, two home runs and three doubles, and was named the Badgers' representative on the All-Tournament team.

PHS returns to its regular schedule at 1 p.m. Saturday at Sedona Red Rock.
