Dosjanee McCloyn drove in two runs and Shianne Smith struck out 11 as the Gresham softball team shut out David Douglas 3-0 on Monday to stay alive in the Mount Hood Conference playoff chase.

McCloyn came up in the fourth inning of a scoreless game, but quickly broke the scoring drought. After fouling off a handful of pitches down both lines, McCloyn straightened one out and lifted a skyscraping fly ball over the center-field fence for a solo home run.

Gresham’s win helped create a jumbled picture in the Mount Hood Conference playoff chase with the Gophers tied with Central Catholic and Barlow for third place entering last night’s regular-season finales. Two of those teams will earn automatic playoff spots, while the third will fall into a qualifier game.
