Taney, the state champion from Center City, advanced in the tournament Monday without playing a game. Taney earned a spot in Friday's semifinals when Newark National beat Northwest Washington (D.C.), 9-4. The Philadelphia team will play its third tournament game Tuesday at 7 p.m. against Colonie, N.Y.
Despite her baseball dominance, basketball is Davis' favorite sport. She plays point guard at Springside Chestnut Hill Academy.
Her stepfather said Davis wanted to try out for the high school girls' team as a seventh grader at Springside but was not allowed. She hopes to make the high school team as an eighth grader.
Even though Davis plays baseball with the boys, she doesn't mind playing basketball with the girls.
"I don't really mind playing with anyone in basketball," she said. "Like I can play with grown-ups or little kids, I just want to get better each time I play and just have fun."
On Monday, she played a pickup basketball game with the boys on her team. After Taney won the Pennsylvania championship last week, Davis' mother drove her straight to a basketball camp in the Poconos.
For the time being, though, baseball is Davis' focus. She did not take well to softball and played for her school's baseball team in seventh grade.
Davis is one of two girls in the regional, and her 10 strikeouts Sunday were more than any other pitcher had recorded through the first two games.
But what about when the boys grow and she won't be able to play baseball with them anymore? Davis said she will hang up her cleats forever, but she won't be discouraged.
There's always another game of basketball to play.
