Young DHS baseball teams each pick up wins

From page B2 | April 24, 2013 |

The Davis High junior varsity baseball team split a pair of games against Franklin last week, then took down Grant by mercy rule to end the Delta Valley Conference stretch on a high note.

In the 13-2 victory over the Pacers, Blue Devil hurler Brendan Pohl set the tone with the strong innings that included three strikeouts. The Ks continued when Ben D’Angelo came in as the DHS relief pitcher got all nine of his outs on strikes.

On the other end of the spectrum were the Devil bats, which would not be silenced as the locals scored in each inning before the game was ended early by the mercy rule. Designated hitter Drew Gnos continued to lead the Davis offense. posting a double and two singles, Jared McNece added a double and a single, while Andrew Bolich maintained his hitting streak with two singles. A left-field blast by Noel Parente and a single by Kris Prince helped the Blue Devils end the contest early.

Earlier in the week, DHS and Franklin played twice, each winning on its home turf. On April 16 in Davis, the Wildcats scored two runs in the top if the first inning, but the Blue Devils came back quickly with six in the bottom of the frame and held on for an 11-7 victory.

Along the way, local starter Andrew Grindall settled down to allow just one run in the next three innings. At the plate, Bolich had a pair of triples, including a bases-clearing blast that was the big hit in the first-inning fireworks. A late sacrifice fly by Davis’ Eric Walker also was key.

On Thursday at Franklin, the hosts turned the tables, coming back from a six-run sixth inning deficit to earn a 9-8 victory.

Blue Devil highlights included another triple from Bolich and strong pitching outing from starter Kyle England.

DHS freshman baseball

Playing Yuba City twice last week, the Blue Devils suffered a 5-4 loss on April 16 at Playfields before bouncing back to capture a 9-8 win on the road Thursday.

In DHS’ victory, the Honkers took an early three-run lead before the locals finally cracked the scoreboard in the third inning. Greg Rohnstock led off that frame with a towering fly ball over the head of the Honker center fielder to log the Devils’ first triple of the season. Later, Alex Timmons lined to right to bring Rohnstock home, Jake Guerrero reached first on an error and Glen Welch (who’s hitting .395 on the season) smashed a two-run double to left center. Welch subsequently scored on an error to put Davis up 4-3.

Yuba City, however, answered with four runs in the bottom of the third to go up 7-4.

From there, Blue Devil pitchers — Pierce Tujo and Gabe Gutierrez — shut the Honkers down until the seventh inning.

Still behind 7-4, DHS went to work in the final frame as Mason Shorts and Christian Lien both drew walks. Timmons (leading the team with a .400 average) then missed a take sign on 3-0 and instead crushed a three-run homer over the left-center field fence. Two outs later, Gavin Cosgrave (.367 on the year) got a hit. He scored on Dan Shuman’s bobbled grounder to short before James Richardson’s single eventually led to Shuman scoring what ended up being the game-winner.

The win was revenge for the loss earlier in the week, which came on a windy day at Playfields. Devil pitchers Richardson, Shuman and Josh Milenbach actually held the Honkers to two hits, but too many walks allowed Yuba City to prevail.

At the plate, Guerrero was 3-for-3, Gutierrez was 2-for-3 and RBIs came from Timmons and Daniel Henrickson. Peter Frame’s hit in the fifth inning led to another run as the Devils led going into the seventh, before the Honkers completed their comeback.
