Huge inning propels Pleasant Grove past DHS

SACRAMENTO — Just about the only good thing about the Davis High baseball team’s Wednesday matchup with Pleasant Grove is that it wasn’t a Delta Valley Conference game.

The Blue Devils, who are locked in a battle at the top of their league, allowed six runs in the fourth inning to fall to the Eagles, 7-3, in a Boras Classic tournament contest at McAuliffe Field.

After a huge victory over Franklin in a DVC game last Thursday, DHS (9-7-1) has lost three of four nonconference matchups.

“We didn’t play well, we didn’t compete (Wednesday),” said Devil skipper Dan Ariola. “I’m not doing a good enough job coaching these guys right now. We are playing good teams, but we aren’t getting any better.

“We play at 4 p.m. (Thursday) … and guys need to step up and find a way to get better.”

On Wednesday, Davis fell behind 1-0 in the first inning, but scratched out runs in the third and the top of the fourth to grab a brief lead. It was Trey Golston’s groundout that brought home John Ariola — who had singled — in the third inning, and Ariola did the same thing to plate Quentin McCray in the fourth.

Ariola finished 3-for-4 on the day.

But, now trailing 2-1, Pleasant Grove (10-4) got a boost when the locals made an error to let the first batter reach in the bottom of the fourth inning. What followed was a procession of singles and walks that led to six Eagle runs in the frame.

“They kept having productive at-bats and we just couldn’t get out of it,” said Dan Ariola.

The Blue Devils got a run back in the sixth, on consecutive singles by John Ariola, Brett Bloomfield and Ryan Kreidler — who was 2-for-3 with an RBI — but it was too little, too late.

DHS will play either Archbishop Mitty or Oak Ridge in Thursday’s final game of the Boras Classic. Then, the Devils return to their DVC slate with a Tuesday (4:15 p.m.) home contest against Grant.

Davis and Elk Grove are tied at the top of the conference at 5-2, while the Pacers and Wildcats are 4-3.
