After a fun-filled Opening Day ceremony and parade on March 9, Davis Little League teams got into full swing last week.

With beautiful spring weather buoying large crowds at the baseball complex on F Street, the action seemed already in midseason form as Majors-division squads played some exciting games.

Here’s a look back at the week …

Orioles 9, Red Sox 3 — Roland Watts’ two-run single in the first inning helped the winners jump on top 3-0 and never look back.

Michael Leistikow, Nate Ade and Owen Schwab also contributed RBI hits while Kayden Hoal, Ade and Danny Honeychurch pitched no-hit innings for the O’s. Ade was credited with the win and Schwab picked up the save.

Kyle Kordana and Ben Park were solid afield and Ade made a terrific running catch to kill a Sox rally.

For the Red Sox, Timmy Chin and Payne Barksdale both doubled, Mikey Finerty and Matoshi Bulkeley singled and Kooper Kijanka and Collin Yee had stolen bases.

Finerty, Owen Millward and Kijanka were effective on the mound.

Giants 11, Nationals 4 — Ethan Park and Giacomo Sorrentino were wizards on the base paths, leading the Giants to a come-from-behind victory.

Adon Enriquez pitched well for the winners and Jack Johnson was brilliant defensively.

For the Nationals, Caden Difuntorum singled, doubled and drove in two. Noah Faber singled twice while Zach Bergevin doubled and L.J. Schwartz added a one-bagger.

Nathan Faber was slick with the glove and Lev Farris Goldenberg had five strikeouts as the starting pitcher.

A’s 8, Diamondbacks 0 — Charlie Easton, Ryan Berry, Josh Catacutan and Ethan Ramos combined for a two-hit shutout, collectively fanning 10 Diamondback hitters.

Meanwhile, Billy Easton smacked two home runs and a single to lead the offense. Catacutan, Charlie Easton, Patrick Stoddard and Dane Peterson added to the A’s hitting attack.

Orioles 10, Angels 4 — Scoreless through four innings, Kyle Kordana’s two-out, two-run double opened the floodgates as the Orioles eventually rolled.

After what would be a seven-run fifth, Hank Schaaf’s two-run single fueled a three-run final inning outburst.

Ade hit a home run and Kordana added a double. Ben Park, Schaaf and Roland Watts all had key hits.

Brennan Peiffer (who stole home) and Schwab played well at shortstop and Schaaf was solid behind the plate. Danny Honeychurch was credited with the pitching win and Schwab earned the save.

Red Sox 6, Marlins 5 — Kooper Kijanka, Timmy Chin and Mikey Finerty all doubled, Mason Barratte singled and swiped two bases and Nate Stoltz drove in two runs in the tight win.

Collin Yee fanned six in his two innings of work and Payne Barksdale whiffed four in his mound appearance. Matoshi Bulkeley struck out two batters.

Giants/Brewers (no score reported) — Adrian Sanchez hit two home runs and winning pitcher Luke Dugger excelled on the mound and in the field. Ethan Park had a late, two-run double.

Angels 11, Tigers 10 — Theo Blewett, Gabel Longshore, Brendan Carsel and Marc Fields were the Tigers’ leading hitters, while Derek Mundy, Garrett Emmons and Adam Dapkewicz pitched well.

Jack Walsh had an unassisted double play.

Tigers 2, Brewers 0 – Pitchers Garrett Emmons, Adam Dapkewicz and Theo Blewett were outstanding with Dapkewicz, Gabel Longshore and Jack Walsh leading the Tigers’ offense.

Notes: Weekly Davis Little League game recaps are submitted by team representatives or coaches. If you don’t see your favorite team’s write-up, talk to the coach or scorekeeper about submitting a recap sheet (found in the facility office — along with a Davis Enterprise in-box). The Little League Page appears each Tuesday in The Enterprise. … Scorekeepers, be sure to include first and last names on your recaps. Spelling counts.
