Robbie Dudzinski hit a two-run homer and Luke Gomes had a three-shot in the big sixth, and Angel Acevedo struck out 12 in a complete-game effort for Kaneland (6-4, 1-2).
"It felt good to get at least one of these," Douglas said.
It felt better when Douglas strode to the plate with two men on and one out in a 2-2 tie. Douglas crushed Grant Weiland's 1-1 hanging curveball over the Yorkville center fielder, scoring two.
"I was just looking for that curveball. I knew he was leaving it up on the previous batters," Douglas said. "I was waiting for it."
Kaneland coach Brian Aversa said Douglas' rare off day was nothing more than a numbers game, and he was impressed with how he handled it.
"We told him just because you're out, you're not totally out," Aversa said. "He came in at a good time for us, an opportune time, and he's capable of that. It's tough getting everybody on the field. I'm glad Jack stuck with it. He's been seeing the ball, well, but when you have 10-11 guys seeing the ball well it's tough."
