Franklin High School beat Vintage 6-2 on Monday in a Sac-Joaquin Section Division I outbracket game, and now the real fun starts.
The Wildcats of Elk Grove received a complete-gem effort Kyle Von Ruden, allowing one earned run as he rounds back into form after an early season saw him slowed by an arm strain. Von Ruden also had three hits and drove in a run, Ryan Sarginson had two hits and scored a run, Taylor Waters had a triple and two RBIs and Kyle Zanzi had two hits for Franklin, which not takes on Pleasant Grove on Wednesday at Sacramento City College at 1 p.m.
That game is followed by Jesuit-Vacaville at 4 p.m.
On Thursday at Sac City, Davis takes on Oak Ridge, followed by Elk Grove-Napa.
