The first game in the three-game set to determine the Delta River League championship went to Pleasant Grove Monday, 6-5. Jesuit had just scored five runs in the top of the seventh inning to grab a 5-3 advantage before the Eagles scored three in their half of the inning to win. Matt Stafford stroked a single up the middle to score the deciding run.
Logan James of Jesuit and Zack Stilwell of Pleasant Grove battled on the mound through six innings. Stafford picked up the win by pitching the seventh inning in relief.
The two clubs play today at Jesuit H.S. at 4 p.m.
In the DVC, Davis won at least a tie for the conference championship by beating Franklin, 5-2. Ben Eckels pitched a nifty game and had three RBI's to support his cause for the Blue Devils. Those two teams play again Wednesday.
