Toft sharp as Devils run baseball mark to 3-0

SACRAMENTO — As if Davis High’s pitching staff wasn’t deep enough, here comes junior left-hander Reinert Toft to throw his hat, er, curve ball in the ring.

Pitching three solid innings of relief, Toft held Sheldon down just long enough for the Blue Devil baseball team to record a 5-4 victory on the road Thursday.

Toft, who had an unlucky inning in a win against Vacaville on Tuesday, allowed two hits, no walks and a run. He picked up the save after starter Jack Shelledy went four innings; almost four SHUTOUT innings.

With DHS leading 5-0 in the bottom of the fourth, the Huskies loaded the bases with two outs.

But Brenden Rubalcava, hitting eighth with a .365 lifetime average, doubled off Chris Gnos’ glove in left field. The hit cleared the bases.

But thanks to Toft’s nifty stint, Shelledy picked up the win.

“Reinert really threw the ball well last summer,” Davis coach Dan Ariola said after watching his guys go to 3-0 on the young season. “He’s capable of sneaking into our top group (of pitchers). He’s made great pitches and set us up nicely for Friday.”

Davis travels to Yuba City for a 6:30 p.m. game with the Honkers.

Ben Eckels, who led the Blue Devils at the plate Thursday, goes after his second win against the Honkers.

In beating Sheldon, Eckels’ single drove in Bobby Young with DHS’ first run after Young had doubled in the first.

In the third, an Eckels double plated Young again, who had reached after striking out. Earlier in the frame, Josh Cosio (who reached on a lead-off walk) scored on a Husky miscue.

When Josh Merritt reached on a fourth-inning error, Alec Miramontes took the opportunity to plate him with a double for the Devils. Reid Hulsizer’s fielder’s choice eventually got Miramontes in.

Ariola said he was happy with the win, reiterating that Toft’s outing is the kind of performance that can set up Davis for future games.

“After Ben, now we can come back with George (Hatamiya) and Miramontes,” Ariola continued.

Next week, DHS plays at Napa on Tuesday, then will meet  Sac-Joaquin Section runner-up Jesuit at Raley Field on March 18 at 6:30 p.m. Davis lost 14-4 last year to the Marauders at Raley, as well as dropping a 5-1 first-round decision to Jesuit in the section playoffs.
