Davis Little League AAA players are finding their groove

By
From page B3 | April 23, 2013 |

It was another big week on the little diamond as the Davis Little League AAA-division squads showed what a difference a few weeks of experience playing together can mean.

Before at least one of the games, the teams held a moment of silence for the victims of the recent terrorist attack at the Boston Marathon. The silence was followed by both squads joining together for a “Go Boston” cheer.

Here’s a look at last week’s action …

Diamondbacks 14, Reds 10: The D’backs scored in every inning, building up a big enough advantage to hold off a late Reds charge.

For the winners, pitcher Kyle Tanner got the first six outs on strikeouts and later made a nice catch in the fourth frame. Connor Dinnell added to the dynamic defense, teaming with Scott Inouye on a double play in the third inning.

Antonio Martin had a pair of doubles to place the Diamondbacks at the plate, while Cole Knutson, Eric Chung, Tomas Fong, Dillon Rockwell and Dinnell each handled the stick well.

Josh Davis and Kieffer Jones each had three hits for the Reds, who scored seven runs in the final two innings to tighten up the game.

Giants 10, Padres 9: The G-men got all the scoring they needed with five runs in each of the third and fourth innings.

Grant Wallace, who also was strong as a pitcher and a catcher, cleared the bases with a three-run double for the Giants. Other offensive standouts included Nico Cooper (two hits and two RBIs) and Liam Gatewood, who reached base twice and scored both times in his first games since being promoted from the AA Giants.

With the Pads creeping back into the contest, Ben Skinner made a great catch to end the game in the bottom of the fifth.

(The Padres did not submit a recap)

Rangers 12, Tigers 5: An all-around performance that featured good defense, strong pitching and capable hitting lifted the Rangers.

In the field, Joseph Field threw out consecutive runners trying to steal in the third innings  and Enrique Verscheor made a nice grab in center field. David Studer tossed a scoreless fourth frame and reliever Antonie Garibay also pitched well for the Giants.

Winning pitcher Colby Mayer also contributed a bases-clearing double, Hawker Hechtl went 2-for-2 with two RBIs, Dylan McGowen scored once and knocked in two runs and Gabe Lawton added a run scored.

For the Tigers, Avery Turkovich had a pair of hits, while Xavier Chambers (double, two runs), Miles Gilbert (run) and Zane Bertero had one apiece. Pitchers Jason Inouye came in and shut the Rangers down for the final two innings, with Teo Honda-Scully making a sliding catch in short right field.

Orioles 8, Diamondbacks 3: The O’s scored five runs in the top of the sixth inning to open up a seven-run lead as Jay Traverso and Zach Walsh each doubled home a run and scored themselves.

Also in the big rally, Jaiden Temple hit an RBI single and came around to score.

Temple also made one of several good defense plays by the Orioles. Luke Murray was part of two others, throwing out a runner at first and tagging another out after a toss from catcher Zach DeWitt. Web gems also came from Jack Johnson, Bryce Baker, Grafton Shorts and Ty Soderquist.

Tomas Fong paced the D’backs with a single, a double and two RBIs.

Yankees 10, Orioles 3: The Yanks’ offense was humming as Gabe Chacon and Joby Antony had three RBIs each and Brady Nelson (who also pitched well) had a triple and a run-scoring single.

Adam Brugger added two hits and an RBI, and was another mound standout, while Mathew Young pitched and had a single. During a particularly impressive at-bat, Yankee Aiden Eagle worked a walk, but not before a runner scored on a passed ball.

For the Orioles, Maya Parker and Zach DeWitt each knocked in runs and made strong defensive plays — Parker’s a throw to catcher Joey Traverso to nail a runner at the plate — and Grafton Shorts (double and single), Jack Johnson, Luke Murray and Jaiden Temple picked up one hit apiece.

Giants 4, Dodgers 3: Asher Reising knocked in the tying run in the top of the sixth and then came home with the winning run on a wild pitch during Liam Sheehan’s at-bat.

Pitching and defense were strong on both sides as Giants pitchers Saul Israel — who also had two hits and an RBI — Walsh Klineburg, Reising, Cash McCrory and Ben Skinner joined forces to hold the Dodgers to just two hits.

(The Dodgers did not submit a recap)

Tigers 9, Red Sox 6: Both teams scored four tines in the sixth inning as the Tigers held off the Sox.

A big key for the Tigers was the smart outfield play of Teo Honda-Scully, Tyler Hudson and Luis Garibay, while Xavier Cahmbers, Gabe Dirksen, Jason Inouye and Krishan Parbhu each pitched well.

Dirksen did good work at the plate with a double and two RBIs.

Matt Henkel had two hits, two runs and two RBIs for the Red Sox, with Max Scheiber and Grant Chastain looking strong afield. Elliott Greve started on the mound and set the Tigers down quickly in the first inning.

Rangers 6, White Sox 2: The Rangers got off to a good start with three runs in the first inning and defeated the Sox, whose only two runs came on steals of home by Demetrius Hyder.

Robert Schacherbauer had two hits and two RBIs for the winners, Colin Walsh added a double and run batted in and Hunter Hechtl went 1-for-2. Dylan McGowan was good in the field for the Rangers, while Schacherbaur teamed with Mitch Banuelos on a double play.

For the Sox, Hyder was all over the place, stealing three bases, smacking a double, pitching well and making a nice play at shortstop. Francesco Erchson also had a web gem and Bradley Sleuter was a big mound presence.
