It was a dynamite week on the diamond for the Davis Youth Softball Association.

Here’s a look at what transpired, starting with the only 12U game report …

Davis Tsunami 15, Dixon Segoria 15: Each team scored per frame as the excessive offense ended this one after three innings.

Facing the powerful Dixon lineup, Tsunami pitchers Sarah Needles and Lauren Wilcox actually did well to limit the damage, while Marie Dean’s third-inning triple was one of Davis’ offensive highlights.

10U

Red Hot Tamales 13, Killer Pandas 10: Consistent scoring throughout the game carried the Tamales, as Lizzy Jones, Amara Sedeno and Sophie Purves (who also had a single) each smacked doubles.

Grace Heringer made a nice play at third base and contributed a pair of hits, while Shelby Harry and Surina Beal added singles.

The RHT also got stellar defensive performances from players Jessie Finkelor, Maya Beal, Jane Rauchway, and Mia Mark, with Surina Beal and Purves both nailing runners who attempted to steal.

In the circle, Jones got the save.

Red Hot Tamales 12, Toxic Waste 7: Four runs in each of the first three innings was enough to clinch the win.

Tamales Jane Rauchway, Mia Mark, Amara Sedeno, Jessie Finkelor and Maya Beal were strong afield, helping Surina Beal, Shelby Harry and Lizzy Jones each make outs at the plate.

On offense, the winners were lifted by singles from Surina Beal, Jones, Sophie Purves and Grace Heringer.

Good pitching from Toxic Waster hurlers Cate Scheuring and Zoe Casias kept their team in the game. Meanwhile, Sarah Griffiths and Anna Lovely were strong at the plate, with Grace Scheuring, La’Siya Earnest and Olivia Ross tearing up the base paths.

Pink Crush 8, Red Hot Tamales 8: After the Tamales took a late lead, the Pink Crush scored four times in their final at-bat to tie the game.

Bella Contreras and Madison Rutherford each scored twice for the Crush and Heather Breckner had a pair of RBIs. Ady Schwarz, who also pitched, and Hazel Anderson played heads-up defense and Tara Reddy was outstanding behind the plate. Madison Rutherford was successful in the circle.

The Tamales offense was paced by Surina Beal, Sophie Purves and Jessie Finkelor.

Smurfs 11, Toxic Waste 10: Maya Nunes stole home in the bottom of the last inning before Stevie Spencer’s singled home Sophie Fucile with the winning run.

Other offensive standouts were Caroline Brennan and Emma Catacutan, who shared pitching duties with Spencer. The Smurfs also benefited from the sparkling defense of Brennan, Elizabeth McConnell and Katie Stachowicz.

Chole Adams had a strong all-around game for the Fireballs, excelling on defense and blasting a double, while Analissa Matamoros hit a two-bagger and struck out one in her pitching outing.

Tessa Mild made a nice defensive play and Dakota Rutherford’s circle stint included a strikeout.

Green Emeralds 3, Panda Power 2: Esha Kajley hit a walk-off single and Elizabeth Barger and Savana Sull knocked in the other Emerald runs.

The winners also got hits from Makena Fix and Erika Wenner, while playing solid team defense.

For Panda Power, Sydney Eberhardt went 2-for-2 with a double and had both RBIs and Emma Brayton posted a pair of hits and scored a run. Aly Eisele (doubled and run at the plate) and Lindsay Taylor (1-for-2) each struck out two in their circle stints.

Additionally, Anna Harrison pitched well and added a hit, while strong fielding came from Shea Kordana, Shelby Ruffle, Rachel Davis and Hanna Furrell.

Smurfettes 3, Green Emeralds 1: Mariah Ruiz struck out four and Paige Lacoste had a key RBI in the victory.

Ruiz, Madison Martin, Sara Donnelly, Alyssa Waterson and Alexis Lyon each added hits for the Smurfettes.

It was another impressive fielding performance by the Emerald, with hits coming off the bats of Veronica Roe, Dakota Banuelos, Erika Wenner, Elizabeth Barger and Easha Kajley.

Pink Panthers 4, Red Fireballs 2: Alana Turner and Kalista Toups had nice pitching debuts for the Fireballs, while the defense of Analissa Matamoros also was strong. Ada Freese smashed a third-inning double to pace the Fireball offense.
