Jesuit, Elk Grove to take on national No. 1 Mitty in San Jose

Jesuit and Elk Grove will travel to the Bay Area this weekend to play the nation's top-ranked baseball team, Archbishop Mitty of San Jose.

The Monarchs are the ESPN Powerade Fab 50's preseason No. 1 after coming off a 31-3 2010. Elk Grove, 29-6 last season, is ranked No. 34 in the same poll.

Jesuit will play at Mitty on Friday.

Elk Grove, which will play at Mitty on Saturday, opened the season at home last Saturday by beating Valley Christian of San Jose 4-1.

Senior pitcher J.D. Davis, Cal-Hi Sports State Junior Player of the Year, struck out eight and allowed two hits in five innings. Sophomore Ray Tellez earned the save with two innings of relief.

The 6-foot-3, 215-pound Davis, headed to Fullerton State on a baseball scholarship, also homered. The 6-4, 215-pound Tellez doubled and singled.
