Davis splits pair in Fresno baseball tourney

CLOVIS — Davis High split two baseball games in the rugged Fresno Easter Classic on Tuesday, topping West of Bakersfield, 10-3, in an afternoon matchup before losing to Clovis, 5-3, in the nightcap.

The outcomes put the Blue Devils at 7-4 with one game remaining — 1 p.m. Wednesday against Frontier (Bakersfield) — before returning home.

“We had some nice situational hitting,” DHS coach Dan Ariola told The Enterprise. “We were moving runners around, picking up some RBIs.”

In their win over the Vikings, the Devils banged out 12 hits and scored three runs in each of the first two innings in support of starting pitcher Manny Guerrero and reliever Trey Golston, who threw the final four innings to pick up the victory.

In that first inning, Joe Murray — batting third instead of his normal lead-off spot — singled, Bobby Young walked and Matt Trask loaded the bases with an infield hit. Golston’s two-run single was followed by Ryan Kreidler’s RBI base hit and Davis had overcome West’s two-run top of the first.

In the second frame, the Blue Devils were at it again …

Daunt reached on an error, Murray walked and Young singled home Daunt. Trask and Golston then walked, forcing in Murray, while Kreidler followed with another RBI hit.

After Young doubled in the third, Hudson Forrester walked and both moved up 90 feet on a groundout. Kreidler followed with his third hit of the contest, driving in his third and fourth runs of the afternoon.

A John Ariola single, Murray’s RBI triple and Jake Miille’s grounder accounted for DHS’ final two runs in the fifth inning.

Guerrero fanned two, walked one and allowed six hits and three runs. Golston gave up just one hit and struck out three.

With Trask taking the mound for the second game, Clovis bunched four hits and a walk with two outs to take a 3-0 lead after two innings.

“Give them credit for some good at-bats with two outs,” coach Ariola said.

Davis, however, rallied for two runs of its own in the top of the third when Ryan Plumb walked and the red-hot Murray singled him to third, then stole second. Ariola’s groundout and Daunt’s single then plated Plumb and Murray.

“Joe has been solid for us all year,” added the coach, as his shortstop’s batting average hovered around .500. “Getting on, swinging the bat, doing everything for us. He’s not very big, but he’s strong.”

For Tuesday’s second game, Murray returned to his customary lead-off spot in the batting order.

After the Cougars (14-3) scratched out another run in the bottom of the third, DHS had its last look at the game in the fourth inning when Trask doubled and eventually came home on Hayden Duer’s infield bouncer.

Trask (3-1) went five innings and Miille pitched a scoreless sixth.

On Wednesday, the Blue Devils send Young (1-2) to the mound against Frontier (10-4-1).
