A’s slip by Sox in 10 as Davis Little League Majors playoffs start

By
From page B2 | May 27, 2014 |

The A’s scratched out a run in the bottom of the 10th, nipping the Red Sox, 5-4, in a Davis Little League Majors-division playoff thriller last week.

The American League game featured solid pitching from Brennan Peiffer and Jordan Painter from the A’s and Mikey Finerty of the Sox.

Ethan Ramos doubled, singled and drove in a run for the winners and Avery Turkovich doubled and singled.

Joby Antony’s double plated a run, Owen Lingbloom and Josh Catacutan doubled while Ty Soderquist and Mason Johnstone each singled.

Antony added a web gem and Johnstone’s lunging catch in the third inning prevented a Red Sox run.

In addition to pitching well (six innings, seven strikeouts), Finerty was 3-for-3 for the Sox. Ben Park tripled, singled and had an RBI while Owen Millwood doubled in two runs.

Gabe Dirkesen and Gabriel Lee were slick in the field.

In other AL Majors playoff action …

Yankees 2, Twins 0 — Demetrius Hyder drove in a first-inning run — then stole home — to pace the victors.

Garrett Emmons and Adam Dapkewicz held the Twins to five hits while combing for 13 strikeouts.

Emmons, Malcolm Burns, Dapekewicz and Kirshan Parbhu added hits.

(The Twins did not submit a recap)

A’s 12, Blue Jays 9 — Josh Catacutan slugged two A’s home runs — including a walk-off, three-run dinger — and drove in four runs. Jordan Painter collected four hits, including a round-tripper and double.

Ethan Ramos had three hits (two doubles among them) for the winners and Joby Antony added a two-bagger.

Brennan Peiffer, Owen Lingbloom, Mason Johnston and Avery Turkovich all contribute key A’s safeties.

Blue Jays Iain Smith and Mark Studer blasted home runs (Studer also doubling twice) in the offensive-minded game.

Bradley Sleuter, Cade Sanders (who doubled) and Grafton Shorts made terrific plays afield.

Twins 8, Blue Jays 1 — Cade Sanders doubled home Mark Scheiber in the first and Grafton Shorts played good infield.

In National League action …

Dodgers 6, Braves 3 — Sean O’Hara smacked a three-run homer in the fifth as the Dodgers advanced.

Cooper Welsh, Griffin Szymoniak, Charles Karagosian and Nolan Bitners added key hits.

Winning pitcher Zane Schouten threw well, as did reliever O’Hara, who joined Roland Watts, Sepp Sanchirico and Karagosian with strong fielding plays.

Cameron DeMasi had a key double in the Braves’ first inning and Kyle Tanner and Kel Williams pitched well.

Reds 13, Mets 0 — Ethan Lo hit two home runs and Kenny Wanderstadt had one of his own as the Reds exploded for nine, first-inning runs.

Ben Skinner hurled three shutout innings for the win.

Saul Israel (2-for-2) and Adam Hasson (single) accounted for much of the Mets’ offense.

Nick Haverlock pitched two strong innings and Nate Thompson made a nice catch.

Braves 11, Giants 1 — Kyle Tanner and Joey Asta combined on a two-hitter as Will Fehrenbacher’s two doubles plated four runs for the winners.

Cameron DeMasi was 2-for-2 with an RBI and three runs scored and Cody Taylor was 2-for-3 with an RBI. Connor Malone and Joey Asta (two runs) added to the output.

Ben Busano and Kevin Coleman turned in web gems.

(The Giants did not submit a recap)

Reds 16, Giants 6 — Giacomo Sorrentino homered and drove in four runs as the Reds — who were trailing 6-5 — scored 11 times in the final two innings.

Pitcher Ethan Lo, who also homered, held the Giants scoreless over the last three innings. He recorded seven strikeouts.

For the Giants, Jake Schneider blasted a three-run homer and Luke Dugger was 2-for-2 with two runs scored.

Emma Dean and Nick Paciulla each had an RBI.

Colin Carter and Emry Lee were tough on the mound.
