SACRAMENTO — Melanie Habib cracked a walk-off, three-run home run as Davis High stopped Carson (Nevada), 8-6, on Saturday en route to a sixth-place finish in the Victory Preseason Tournament of Champions.

“A lot of tough teams in this tournament,” DHS coach George Meagher said. “We had a setback but overcame it. Haley Cameron was lights out this weekend … and this tournament had as good a (selection of) teams as you’ll find anywhere.”

The Blue Devils went 3-2 at the three-day competition. They lost 3-2 to Ponderosa on Friday and finished with a 5-2 loss Saturday to powerful El Cajon of Southern California.

Between the two losses, Davis played the dramatic outing against Carson.

That “setback” Meagher mentioned came in the second inning when Cameron blasted what appeared to be a two-out, two-run homer. The umpire called it a ground-rule double. When the next batter made an out, the score remained 4-1, Devils trailing in the third.

DHS scored first when Cameron doubled home Megan Winton. The Blue Devils scrambled for two more in the sixth when Becky Nakano had a two-run single (with hits by Emily Glass and Cameron setting up Nakano’s delivery).

But entering the bottom of the seventh, the Devils (3-4) still trailed, 6-3.

But Stephanie Cello reached on an error, and Winton doubled her home. Cameron was intentionally walked and Glass singled home Winton, before the junior shortstop Habib followed with her dinger.

In the final game, DHS opened with two first-inning runs against El Cajon, thanks to Cello getting hit by a pitch, Rita Allen-Sutter’s sacrifice and back-to-back singles from Cameron and Glass.

But that was it for the Blue Devils as El Cajon was relentless at the plate and on the bases — despite Winton throwing a couple of runs out at home.

“They had a bunch of left-handed slappers. They were one of the best run-and-gun teams I’ve ever seen,” Meagher reported. “Their coach praised our girls for their effort, discipline.”

Davis travels to Pioneer on Tuesday and hosts Vacaville on Friday.
