Gophers shut out Douglas, stay in hunt
Mount Hood Conference
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.
Greshams 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 nights regular-season finales. Two of those teams will earn automatic playoff spots, while the third will fall into a qualifier game.
