A sixth-inning comeback fell short for the Davis National 9-10 All-Star squad on Monday and Dixon was able to hang on, 6-3 — eliminating the locals from the District 64 tournament in a game played at the Davis Little League Complex.

While they were ultimately unable to prevail, the Nationals did not go quietly. In the fifth, needing one run to tie the game, Davis put runners on second and third with one out before Dixon clamped down and moved into the final inning unscathed.

The visitors then put up three runs in the top of the sixth frame to open up a 6-2 advantage.

DNLL did its best to rally, with a Nico Dwyer single knocking in Cole Knutson to cut the gap to three, but Dixon once again slammed the door. This time, it came shut on Davis’ season.

In their final game, Knutson and Keiffer Jones, led the local offensive attack. Knutson had two singles and the sixth-inning run, and reached base a third time on a Dixon error.

Jones added two singles and two RBIs, building on his tournament-long hot streak which started with four hits in Saturday’s opener. Not only putting up big numbers, the slugger made his contributions when his team needed them most.

“I thought Keiffer had an excellent tournament,” said Davis skipper Colin Andersen. “He had two home runs … I thought he played really well.”

The Nationals’ pitching staff also finished strong, keeping the Dixon batters guessing for much of the game.

“I thought our pitchers did really well,” Andersen explained. “(Starter) Trevor Button had a great game.”

The loss was DNLL’s second of the tournament as it also fell to Woodland National in the opener. The locals then bounced back to defeat Winters on Sunday and set up Monday’s elimination game.

“We started off kind of rough,” Andersen said of his team’s performance in the tournament. “But overall, I thought we played really well.”
