Devils looking forward after softball loss at Elk Grove

ELK GROVE — Davis High softball coach Art Guerra was upbeat following Monday’s 8-2 loss to a deep and talented Elk Grove squad.

That’s because the Blue Devils (7-13, 2-2 Delta Valley Conference) played better than the score indicates and, perhaps more importantly, are still very much alive for a Sac-Joaquin Section playoff spot.

DHS has key games the next two days against Franklin — Tuesday at home (4:15 p.m.) and Wednesday in Elk Grove — which it needs only to split to remain in the postseason hunt.

“It’s like I told the girls, we are not out of the playoff picture by any means,” Guerra said, noting that three DVC teams will earn tournament berths.

Elk Grove (11-4, 5-0) took control of the league, and Monday’s game, by scoring four runs in the second inning and three in the third to go up 7-0.

But the Devils, who had runners in scoring position in five of the seven frames, would not go quietly.

Davis freshman Audrey Dufresne opened the fourth inning by getting hit by a pitch and Rachel Mobley followed with a walk. That set up Faith Harlan for the first of her two singles on the day, plating Dufresne.

In the fifth, Emily Ginn reached on an error and senior Ashley Dufresne brought Ginn home from first with a booming double to right-center.

“You know, the kids pitched well, they played well,” Guerra said. “That’s probably the best team we played all season. If we play the way we did (Monday) against Franklin, we’ll win.”

Maddie Asta had the Blue Devils’ only other hit.
