Hosting a 16-team tournament at Davis High, the Blue Devil softballers were just one inning away from finishing 3-1. However, a late comeback by Armijo on Friday afternoon meant DHS was 2-2 at the two-day event, taking sixth place.

The Devils opened with a 7-3 win over Natomas, then led the Indians 5-3 going into the bottom of the sixth. Armijo, playing as the home team despite Davis being on its own field, managed three runs in its final at-bat to steal a victory.

The locals started Saturday with a 7-4 win over Will C. Wood, but got whipped by Whitney, 12-2, in their tournament finale.

“I was pretty happy. It was just so good to be out there in the sun playing some games,” said Blue Devil coach Art Guerra. “We just can’t keep giving up runs right after we score.”

That wasn’t a problem against Natomas, as DHS fell behind 3-0 before exploding for seven runs in the fourth inning. In that huge rally, Emily Ginn’s single loaded the bases, Madi Yule’s single knocked in the first run and Maddie Asta cleared the bases with a double. Later in the frame, Faith Harlan’s two-RBI triple completed the scoring.

Following the disappointing loss to Armijo, it was Ginn’s big performance that paced the Devils against Wood.

The junior got her team off to a great start with a three-run double in the first inning and finished with three hits and four RBIs in the contest.

Davis also got strong hitting from Catherine Slabaugh and Kaitlyn Lagattuta throughout the event, while pitchers Rachel Mobley and Aubrey Dufresne look good in spots.

“We’ll go as our pitching goes this year,” Guerra said.

Pioneer took first place at tournament.

The Blue Devils have three games next week, with road outings at American Canyon (Monday) and Woodland (Thursday) sandwiched around a Tuesday 4:15 p.m. home matchup with Inderkum.
