KINGMAN - After Kingman Academy Black beat West Phoenix 20-0 in the first game of a doubleheader Friday at Southside Park, and after Black took an 8-0 lead after two innings in the second game, coach Bill McCord saw the second game as an opportunity to play everyone.
"I figured I better put the subs in and get them some games because there are going to be times where I can't get them all in," McCord said.
The subs didn't disappoint in the 9-4 Game 2 win, as McCord was able to get all 15 players into the game.
Austin Levandowski hit a double in the top of the seventh inning after batting for Matt Huggins in the fifth. Lane Neilson got a hit in the fifth after batting for Caleb Boyett and Wyatt McCord singled past second base in the fifth after batting for Westin McCord in the third.
"We hit the ball well tonight and I was pretty happy about that," McCord said.
Ty Sherwood got the start and pitched the first two innings. After that the game mirrored spring training, with four different players throwing the final five innings as McCord looked to get his pitchers some work.
"The pitchers did real well tonight," McCord said. "Matt (Huggins) struggled a bit because he didn't have a chance to get warm."
Huggins pitched the bottom of the seventh and gave up four runs, three of them earned. He gave up one hit, walked four and struck out one.
KAHS Black (5-0) will travel to Desert Hills Wednesday before hosting Heritage Friday.
