Sports briefs: Grant gets past Blue Devil volleyballers

By
From page B8 | April 24, 2013 |

Sometimes its hard to pinpoint the turning point of a two-hour boys volleyball match, but not on Tuesday when Davis High traveled to face Grant.

After the two teams — each of which is near the top of the Delta Valley Conference — split the first two games, the Blue Devils had a pair of chances to capture the third set. But the Pacers came back to win that game and eventually the match, 25-19, 20-25, 26-24, 25-19.

Still, DHS coach Julie Crawford was happy with the way her guys played toe-to-toe with the powerful Pacers:

“I was proud of them, they were very competitive … fighting for every point. We never let down we just never really got that run that we needed.”

Though Grant has a couple of strong hitters that the net, the Devil blockers held their own, and Davis had a good night serving.

Senior stalwart Dan Bonetti led the locals at the net with his big hitting and Evan Meerscheidt’s nice all-around performance included several good-looking shots.

On the back line, Dominic Fannjiang continued to show how much he’s improved with another consistent outing.

The Blue Devils are back on the road Thursday with a 5 p.m. contest at Laguna Creek, before returning home next Tuesday for a huge senior night matchup against Monterey Trail.

UCD baseball

Santa Clara right fielder Casey Munoz hit a walkoff double in the 10th inning to give his team a 7-6 victory over UC Davis in a nonconference baseball game at Schott Stadium on Tuesday night.

The Aggies (15-23) left 10 men on base as they saw their four-game wining streak snapped. The Broncos improved to 10-28.

UCD reliever Craig Lanza (0-1) pitched flawless eighth and ninth innings but issued a leadoff walk followed by two singles and Munoz’s double in the 10th to suffer the loss.

Steven Patterson extended his hitting streak to eight games by going 3-for-5 with a RBI for the Aggies.

The back-and-forth affair was tied at 4-4 after four frames and 6-6 following a pair of seventh-inning runs by UCD.

River Cats

Sacramento had a chance to break things open when it loaded the bases with one out in the bottom of the seventh inning of Tuesday afternoon, but the rally fizzled and the River Cats eventually fell, 6-2, to the Reno Aces at Raley Field.

Cats starter Justin Thomas had another good outing, but suffered the tough-luck loss to drop to 0-2 on the season. In his seven innings of work, Thomas allowed just six hits, two earned run and had no walks against six strikeouts.

Reno led just 3-2 before tallying three times in the eighth off of Evan Scribner, who was making his first appearance with Sacramento since being sent down from Oakland.

The River Cats mustered three just hits — one each from Grant Green, Michael Choice and Tyler Ladendorf — while leaving 10 runners on base. Their two runs crossed the plate in the seventh thanks to Ladendorf’s RBI single and a bases-loaded walk to Jemile Weeks.

Sacramento is off Wednesday before hosting Salt Lake on Thursday at 7:05 p.m.
