KINGMAN - Before Saturday's championship game of the District 10-11 All Star Tournament, home plate umpire Danny Asplin told the coaches from Blythe, Calif., and Kingman North to expect a wide strike zone.

After the tournament's three previous games lasted anywhere from three to four hours, Asplin's goal was to keep the action moving and not let it turn into a four-hour marathon as was the case Friday.

Asplin archived his goal in a quick 1 hour and 30 minutes as Blythe walked away as District champions with a 19-0 win.

"They are a tough team," North manager Shawn Stinson said of Blythe. "They like to run. They like to hit. Congratulations to Blythe and good luck to them at state."

In the first meeting between the teams on Wednesday, Blythe won 39-8. On Saturday, North was able to hold Blythe to just three runs in the first inning, then the game got out of hand. Blythe sent 15 hitters to the plate and scored 11 runs in the second.

Blythe added five more runs in the third inning, giving starter Zach Reynolds more than ample run support.

Reynolds threw a complete game in 44 pitches, giving up just one hit to Robert Paulson Jr. Paulson was thrown out trying to steal second base.

Reynolds ended the night with eight strikeouts. He struck out the side in the first and third innings and induced three ground ball outs in the fourth inning to close out the game.

"That's tough to deal with," Stinson said of Reynolds' pitching. "When a kid is that on, there is not much you can do. Even when you put the ball in play, they have a great defense."

Despite the loss, Stinson is proud of his players. Throughout the tournament, North had a sign hanging in their dugout that read "Believe," and no mater how dire the situation was, North never gave up.

During Wednesday's shellacking, North didn't go down without a fight as they got a run in the first inning and added three more in third and four more in the fourth.

"These guys never put their heads down. I'm proud of them," Stinson said. "They always found the positive somewhere. They have a lot of passion and a lot of heart."
