In a break from Delta Valley Conference play, Davis High’s junior varsity baseball squad went 1-3 in a pair of doubleheaders, splitting with Pleasant Grove and losing both ends against Jesuit.
A seven-run second inning gave the Blue Devils an 8-5 decision in the opener with the Eagles on April 14.
Peter Frame, Daniel Henrickson and Solomon Biers-Ariel had key hits early in the big outburst before Tyler Gibson doubled to bring home two more runs. Walks, two errors and a hit batter added to the carnage.
Frame went 2-for-3 on the day and pitched the first three innings (allowing three earned runs). Ray Young finished the final four frames with two-hit pitching.
In the nightcap, Pleasant Grove returned the favor — using a six-run fourth to earn a 7-5 nod.
Gibson knocked two doubles, a single, drove in two and scored twice as Biers-Ariel, Hunter Jury and Gabe Gutierrez each collected two hits. Solomon doubled and scored two times.
Devils Noah Riffle and James Richardson were strong in relief.
On Wednesday, Jesuit tallied three late runs to prevail 5-4 in the opener. The Marauders then flexed their muscles, winning the second game, 15-4.
Gibson fanned six, allowing only two runs in five innings as he left the first game with 3-2 lead. A three-run sixth for JHS proved the difference.
Jury (2-for-4), Pierce Tujo and Alex Timmons collected RBIs, while Henrickson, Gibson, Tujo and Jacob Avila scored Davis’ runs.
Down 11-1 after two frames in the second Jesuit game, the Blue Devils (11-7 overall, 6-1 DVC) nonetheless banged out 10 hits. Timmons, Jury, Biers-Ariel and Gibson all doubled, with Biers-Ariel, Jake Guerrero and Jury collecting two safeties each.

McClatchy put up a good battle, but the Blue Devils prevailed 2-0 last week at Yudin Field.
Alex Diaz put the pressure on the Lions early, but her cross to A.J. Scheisari was blasted off the waiting McClatchy goalie. Fortunately, Alexis Olmedo stood waiting and tapped the rebound in, making it 1-0 DHS.
The Devils could not capitalize on corner-kick opportunities delivered by Morgan Metler and Tiffany Miras, and the first half ended with Davis clinging to the one-goal advantage.
In the second half, Miras’ strike — off a Diaz cross — gave the Blue Devils breathing room.
Hannah Deknikker almost made it 3-0, but she was fouled in the box and her ensuing penalty kick was saved by the McClatchy netminder.
Coach Robert Smith said the DHS defense held the Lions to “two harmless shots as Willa Moffat excelled on the back line.”
