DHS softball stays in first with close win

Tarah Kalinen’s bat and Madi Benner’s arm provided the Davis High softball team with just enough to get past Laguna Creek, 3-2, on Wednesday in a Delta Valley Conference road game.

The first-place Blue Devils are now 15-8-1 and 6-1 in DVC play after beating the improving Cardinals.

Kalinen went 4-for-4, scoring the team’s first run in the second inning and knocking in the other two. In that second frame, Kalinen singled, went to third when Maddie Asta singled and came home on Emily Ginn’s groundout.

With Benner throwing well for DHS, neither team scored again until Devil Ashley Dufresne doubled in the sixth. Pinch runner Faith Harlan then came around to score when Kalinen got a base hit.

One inning later, the locals made it 3-0 when Kaitlyn Lagattuta singled for the second time in the game, Cello moved her forward with her hit and Kalinen got her second RBI. Davis had 11 hits in all.

“We played well (Wednesday), but we left too many runners on base,” said Blue Devil coach Art Guerra. “But it seemed like whenever we needed a big hit, Tarah was there to get it for us.”

Through the first six frames, Benner was dominant, allowing no runs on just three hits. So even when Laguna Creek took advantage of an error to plate two and put the tying run on base in the seventh, Guerra wasn’t worried.

“Madi threw great,” Guerra said after his pitcher struck out two Cardinals. “Even when they had the tying run on, I knew we were OK with the way she was going.”

DHS has two regular-season games remaining — a Senior Day outing on Monday against Monterey Trail (4:15 p.m.) and a Wednesday matchup at Elk Grove, which is expected to be a de facto conference championship contest.
