With Davis Little League AAA-division competition in full swing, there was a terrific 8-8 tie between the Marlins and Cubs, a Blue Jays’ 7-6 decision over the Nationals — and a handful of slugfests.

Here’s a look back at recent action …

Marlins 8, Cubs 8 — Scott Inouye reached base four times for the Cubs — including tying the game with a two-out, last-inning double. He added two walks and a single.

For the Marlins, William Dunne scored twice and Trajan Clark drove in Carlos Campos with a hit.

Eli Grote pitched a scoreless fifth inning, Zach Forbes and Tanner Snow each struck out three and Ansel Tucker hurled two solid innings.

Blue Jays 7, Nationals 6 — The Birds’ Luc Marie singled twice and stole two bases while hurling 2 1/3 innings of two-hit ball and striking out the final hitter with runners on second and third.

Ryan Jamarillo contributed a double and a steal for the winners.

Nats Trevor Button and Keane Deas each tapped out two singles as their team led 4-0 before the Jays rallied for five runs in the third.

Giants 16, Astros 5 — Alex Peixoto’s three-run double in a five-run first set the tone for the Giants.

Meanwhile, teammate Chris Sacramento threw two scoreless innings and Miles Beaulieu smacked an RBI double.
