DHS freshmen take two from River Valley

By Kari Peterson

With two league victories against River Valley (Yuba City) last week, the Davis High freshman baseball team improved its record to 5-2 in conference (8-8 overall), and goes into the final two weeks of the season in peak form.

The Blue Devils got off to a slow start in the first of the two-game set. An error, plus two walks given up by Davis starter James Richardson, allowed the Falcons to parlay a one-hit first inning into an early two-run lead, putting the Devils in catch-up mode.

But catch up they did in the 6-4 triumph.

In the second inning, Greg Rohnstock — who continued his hot streak from the previous week by going 2-for-4 — doubled to left-center, moved to third on a single by Gavin Cosgrave (2-for-2) and scored on Pierce Tujo’s right-side grounder to narrow the lead. Cosgrave is now hitting. 394.

Davis tied the game in the third, when Daniel Henrickson singled and eventually came home on an error and two wild pitches.

The Falcons scored again in the fourth inning, but that’s all Richardson would give up in his five innings (three runs, four hits, five strikeouts).

With his team down 3-2 in the sixth, Blue Devil Jake Guerrero — who’d reached first on an error and third on another Cosgrave single — was plated on Tujo’s fielder’s choice groundout. Tujo then stole second and came home when Mason Shorts drilled the ball up the middle for a double to give the locals their first lead.

River Valley tied things in the bottom of the inning, but the DHS offense responded …

Lead-off hitter Alex Timmons (.400 on the season) fired a grounder up the middle and scored on a single by Glen Welch (.390). Welch came in on Cosgrave’s sac fly and the scoring was complete.

Reliever Josh Milenbach pitched a hitless final frame, including two strikeouts, to pick up the save.

The Devils’ 7-6 home victory on Thursday saw similar see-saw action, but this time Davis had the upper hand for most of the game.

Down 2-0, the local scoring began in the second inning with Richardson (2-for-2) beating the throw on an infield grounder and scoring on Christian Lien’s double to left. After Ray Young moved Lien over, he took advantage of a wild pitch to tie the game.

The Falcons put two more on the board in the top of the next frame, but the Blue Devils one-upped them by sending three across the plate in the bottom half, taking a lead they would not relinquish.

In that inning, Welch opened with a double, his third of the season. Peter Frame moved him over on a bunt up the first-base line. Shorts was hit and Richardson walked to load the bases with only one out. Lien logged his second RBI of the game on a fielder’s choice that plated Welch, before Shorts and Richardson scored on singles by Young and Dan Shuman.

DHS starter Tujo gave up nothing in the next two innings, striking out three in the fourth and retiring the Falcons on two easy grounders and a fly ball in the fifth.

Meanwhile, the Devils weren’t finished. Gabe Gutierrez and Welch drew walks, Frame’s sacrifice fly plated Gutierrez and Richardson’s second single of the game brought Welch home to make it 7-4.

Milenbach easily handled the visitors in the sixth. The lefty did give up two runs in the seventh inning, but held on to clinch Davis’ third consecutive victory.
