Written by Don Ratzlaff Tuesday, 16 April 2013 12:12Defensive mistakes proved to be Hillsboro’s Achilles’ heel as the Trojans dropped a baseball doubleheader Friday at Kingman, 12-11 and 11-8.
The sweep evened Hillsboro’s record at 3-3 for the season.
Game 1 was particularly frustrating as the Trojans built an 8-3 lead after 31⁄2 innings behind the pitching of Jordan Faul. But a pair of errors contributed to a four-run rally in the bottom of the inning on only one hit.
After Kingman tied the game in the fifth, the Trojans bounced back to take an 11-8 lead through 51⁄2 inning with a three-run rally fueled by six walks from Eagle pitchers.
But with two more Hillsboro errors, Kingman rallied again to tie the game in the bottom of the sixth, then scored the winning run in...
