JV, freshman baseball squads show stuff in wins

From page B3 | April 17, 2013 |

The Davis High junior varsity baseball team jumped right into its first full week of Delta Valley Conference games with gusto — winning decisively against Laguna Creek and Monterey Trail, before losing to powerhouse Elk Grove, 2-1, on Friday.

Hosting the Cardinals April 9, the Blue Devil bats were busy (12 hits) as DHS rolled, 9-3.

In the win, Drew Gnos had two singles and a triple, Nate Curtis connected for two singles and a double, Ben D’Angelo had two singles, while Andrew Bolich added a triple. Meanwhile, the Devil defense was flawless.

Davis starting pitcher Kyle England went three scoreless innings before running into a bit of trouble in the top of the fourth, allowing two runs.

The Cards managed another run in the fifth off of reliever Walter Bolle, but that would be it for Laguna Creek as  Kris Prince pitched the final two innings, facing the minimum.

Thursday found the Blue Devils at Monterey Trail for an 11-1 victory.

DHS hurler Brendan Pohl dominated, allowing only two hits in five innings, while striking out 10.

The Mustangs did manage one run on three hits in the sixth inning, but went down quietly in the seventh as reliever Eric Ade closed out the game.

Things stayed close through four innings, with the Devils holding a modest 2-0 lead before scoring two more runs in the fifth. A five-run sixth inning broke things open, as Jared McNece led the locals with a single and a double.

Davis wrapped up the week with an exciting, but heartbreaking home loss to Elk Grove.

In the 2-1 defeat, Devil ace Bolle threw a complete game, allowing two unearned runs on six hits.

But the DHS bats were quiet as Gnos and Eric Walker had the only hits of the game. The Blue Devils did manage to eke out a run with the help of a Herd error and a sacrifice fly by England.

After six innings the score was tied at 1-1, but a steal of home gave Elk Grove the win.

DHS freshman baseball

After a bruising mercy-rule defeat to Will C. Wood three weeks earlier, the Blue Devils came back to dominate the Wildcats on April 9, prevailing 5-0 in a nonconference game in Vacaville.

DHS hurler Pierce Tujo was the main attraction, going the distance in a well-pitched game. He shut out the competition with help from a strong defense, and gave up only one hit in seven innings. Tujo got stronger as the game progressed with five late-inning strikeouts — four of them looking — to pour salt into Wood’s wound.

After a quiet first two innings, the Devil offense came alive in the third. Greg Rohnstock, who walked to lead off the inning, advanced to third on Daniel Henrickson’s drive to center. Jake Guerrero’s sacrifice bunt then plated Rohnstock and back-to-back RBI singles from Glen Welch and Peter Frame (2-for-4) drove in Henrickson and Guerrero.

Frame came home on Mason Shorts’ bobbled grounder to first and, with that, Davis (5-7, 2-1 in conference) had a comfortable 4-0 lead.

Ben Harvey set up the final tally in the seventh inning with a sharply hit line drive. He got to third on Frame’s double to left and came home on a Shorts grounder.

Tujo made quick work of the Wildcats in the seventh, but not before a weakly hit roller — that was just out of the reach of Alex Halford — marred his hit-free game.
