DHS splits a pair of softball contests

When Davis High walked off the softball field after scoring just one run in a home loss to Sheldon on March 25, the team was searching for answers offensively.

Following an extended break due to spring break and rainouts, the Blue Devils finally got back on the field Saturday, and seemed to have found their bats in a 16-3 victory over Rio Linda as part of the Albie Aware Cancer Foundation event at St. Francis.

And though DHS had just three hits in a 3-2 loss at Laguna Creek on Monday, Devil coach Art Guerra said his girls had about six of the hardest hit balls of the day.

“(Monday) was just one of those days,” Guerra said after Davis (5-11) fell to 0-1 in Delta Valley Conference play. “They scored on an error in the second inning and got both of their other runs in the third on two dinks.

“It was a well-played softball game. They literally didn’t hit a ball hard, while we hit probably six really well that they caught.”

The locals scored two runs of their own in the third, one by senior Danielle Styers, who finished 2-for-3 on the day, but that was it for offense. The only other hit came from Catherine Slabaugh in that same inning.

It was a different story on Saturday, though an early home run by Rio Linda put the Blue Devils behind 3-0 in the first inning. DHS, however, cut the lead to 3-2 in the bottom of the frame when Styers (3-for-4) hit one of her two doubles, Emily Ginn followed with an RBI two-bagger and Ashley Dufresne smacked a run-scoring single.

The Devils then tied things up in the second and broke the game open with a 10-run third inning during which they sent 16 batters to the plate.

Davis hopes the offensive explosion comes again Tuesday at Grant and then again in a Wednesday (4:15 p.m.) home matchup with Monterey Trail.

The Blue Devils also announced that a home game against Franklin, which has been postponed twice, will be played on Tuesday, April 22.
