National Juniors get walk-off win

HEALDSBURG — Davis National blew an early lead on Saturday, but the local Little League Juniors squad wasn’t about to let its Section 1 tournament opener get away.

So, DNLL scored two runs in the bottom of the seventh inning to pull out a 10-9 win over Mill Valley at the Healdsburg Recreational Park.

With the win, manager Kevin Bell’s Davis squad — which captured the District 64 title last week — next plays Monday in the double-elimination section tournament.

On Saturday, Connor Bunfill had three hits and two RBIs to power the Nationals, Ryan Bell added a pair of knocks and Kevin Blanc worked Mill Valley hurlers for a pair of walks.

Tanney Olney and Sebastian Anaya each smacked doubles and joined Trevor Hewitt, Ronnie Leymaster and Blanc in posting RBIs.

Davis mound duties were shared by Bell and Olney — who each notched two strikeouts — along with Jacob Wieking and Gabe Gutierrez.

Olney, Bunfill and Gutierrez stole bases to help the DNLL cause.

The locals went up 3-0 after one inning and held an 8-4 advantage after three. Mill Valley, the District 3 champions, then began to chip away at the lead, eventually tying things up and going ahead with its two runs in the top of the seventh.

Davis National, however, completed its 13-hit attack by plating two runs of its own to end the game in the bottom of the frame.

A stellar DNLL defense finished the game without making an error.

    Great article. I think it is great that the Enterprise provides so much coverage of the areas youth sports. I think seeing coverage of their efforts, and seeing their names in prin (the kids) is a real positive encouragement towards continuing to work hard and not be distracted by so many of the negative influences that are out there today. One thing that wasn"t mentioned about this DNLL effort yesterday was that they took the field with the only 9 players they had available to play, and after a 12 pitch first inning, Ryan Bell made a great effort to get in for an early important run and had a huge collision at the plate with a well geared catcher. He suffered through his obvious discomfort and his team rallied behind him in what was an incredible string of position rotations, which each of the Davis players handled incredibly well. This team has showed a huge amount of heart, and i think the community should be proud to have these kids representing them at Sectionals and beyond.

    I agree with Steve's comment that the coverage by the Enterprise has been great, and the coverage eases my out-of-town pain from not being there for my son! This team has improved so much this year, and I proudly look at kids that have improved over the past several years in this sport. I am proud of them all, and this has been truly a great opportunity to route with all my heart for every boy!
