KAYSVILLE -- For the Davis Darts, it's feast or famine depending on the day.
A day after lighting up the scoreboard for 13 runs, the Darts were able to manage only three runs in the fifth inning, but those runs were able to hold up as Davis remained undefeated in Region 1 play with a 3-0 win over the Fremont Silver Wolves on Thursday.
"That is a dang good baseball team we beat there," Davis coach Dave Leo said. "It's amazing to see that if you aren't splitting games with teams in this league how quickly things can turn against you. If you look at that team (Fremont), they are now in a dog fight just to get into the playoffs.
"I thought that we played well enough defensively to win the game," Leo added. "That's been our mantra the entire year. We can hang our hat on playing good defense and pitching it well. Jackson (Peacock) got us the big hit we needed and Zac (Fuller) pitched a great game."
Both teams were able to settle in as Fuller and Fremont's Taylor Kranendonk were tossing it around the plate and getting strikes called. Frustrated hitters were finding it difficult to get much at the dish and it looked like the game was going into extra innings. However, Peacock had other plans.
The Darts' Gage Cook led off the 5th inning with a single to center. Fuller was able to draw a walk to put runners on first and second with no outs.
After being intentionally walked at his last plate appearance, Bronson Larsen worked his way into another walk to load the bases. On a 1-1 pitch, Peacock stroked a double down the right field line that plated all three runners to make the score 3-0.
Peacock was thrown out at third on a great relay throw from Trevor Bennett, but the damage was done.
From there, Fuller was able to get the final six outs of the game, although the Silver Wolves made things interesting after getting a single from Bennett and pinch-hitter Josh Payne reached on a throwing error from Tyler Hall. With two runners on and only one out, Fuller got the final two outs on a groundout and ended the game with his 11th strikeout.
Bennett and Brody Rich each had singles for Fremont in the loss. Davis was led by the bases clearing double from Peacock and Fuller who pitched the complete game two-hitter.
