In its only action of the week, Davis pounded Tishomingo on both ends of a District double-header on March 30. The Wolves racked up 28 runs in just 11 innings at the plate to earn two more home wins.
Davis 12, Tishomingo 1
In the first game Davis capitalized on Tishomingo mistakes and piled up 12 runs on just four hits over the five-inning game. The Indians struggled on the mound and in the field with 12 walks and five errors in the game.
Jake Parker was one of three Wolves to walk twice. He added a hit, a RBI and three runs scored as his team blew out the Indians. Davis led 3-0 going into the fourth inning before tallying four runs in the fourth and five more in the fifth to cap a run-rule win.
Colin Dulaney left no doubt on the mound for Davis. He pitched all five innings for the win, allowing one run on just three hits in the contest.
Davis 16, Tishomingo 6
The Wolves actually had to come from behind in the second game due to a terrible start. A walk, two errors and a pair of singles kick-started a Tishomingo top of the first that ended in four runs scored. The Indians scored another run in the second and led 5-3 going into the bottom of the third before Davis took over.
Singles by Dulaney and Jeston Idleman keyed the rally, but consecutive hit batsmen plated the tying and go-ahead runs in the inning.
Tishomingo tied it at 6 with a run in the top of the fourth, but then Davis erupted for five runs in the bottom half, one in the fifth and four in the sixth to put the game away.
Dulaney started the rally in the fourth with a leadoff triple. Then, later with the bases loaded, Lane Rawls racked up three RBI with a triple of his own, his second triple of the game.
Idleman ended the game by scoring from third on a walk-off wild pitch in the bottom of the sixth.
After mustering just four hits in the first game, Davis drilled a dozen in the second. Dulaney and Dawson Fetty led the team with three hits apiece and Rawls drove in four runs.
On the mound, Raydyn Amos pitched the first four innings, shutting down the Indians after the first. IN the final two innings, Mitchell Garrison pitched scoreless, no-hit baseball.
With the wins, Davis improved its overall record to 12-5 and its district mark to 7-2.
After getting some rest and practice time during a rare eight-day layoff, the Wolves will return to action on Thursday in the Jake Lefler wooden bat Tournament at Velma-Alma high school. A bracket of the tournament is printed on the bottom of this page.
