Devils show more life in loss to Mitty

SACRAMENTO — Facing only high-level squads at the Boras Classic tournament the past three days, wins and losses weren’t the only way Davis High coach Dan Ariola judged his team’s performance.

So after an 8-4 loss to Archbishop Mitty on Thursday, Ariola wasn’t totally pleased, but he liked the way the Blue Devils worked, as opposed to Wednesday’s defeat at the hands of Pleasant Grove.

“(Thursday), we competed harder than we did (Wednesday),” Ariola said. “But we still have a lot of work to do to get better.”

DHS (9-8-1) scored its four runs off of a Stanford-bound junior left-hander, Kris Bubic, who Ariola said had as good a change-up as he has seen at the high school level.

“We faced a really good arm; he struck us out 11 times,” said the veteran coach. “He was really dealing … so to face a guy of that caliber and score four runs and have the opportunity for a couple more, was nice. We were fighting him.”

Down 2-0 after the first inning, the Devils rallied with two outs in the second when Nate Curtis was hit by a pitch. After Curtis swiped second, Jared McNece singled him home.

Davis then cut the deficit to 5-3 by scoring twice in the bottom of the fourth. Sophomore Ryan Kreidler reached on an error, then UCLA-bound senior Matt Trask doubled to put two runners in scoring position.

Kreidler came home when Mitty (16-5) threw the ball away on a pick-off attempt, before Drew Gnos plated Trask with a single.

Senior Brett Bloomfield got the locals’ final run on his own when he tripled in the sixth inning and scored on a wild pitch.

Meanwhile, three Blue Devil pitchers had to face a powerful Monarchs lineup. Walter Bolle, Josh Guerrero and Ted Riffle combined on the hill and Ariola said his staff at least made Mitty work for its offense.

Next week, DHS gets back into the Delta Valley Conference schedule, where it is 5-2 and tied with Elk Grove for first place. Just behind is Grant (4-3), a team the Devils host on Tuesday at 4:15 p.m. then play on the road Thursday. Laguna Creek is in town Friday for a 4:15 p.m. matchup.
