In Davis Little League Majors-division play last week, winning pitcher Kayden Hoal also doubled in two runs as the Orioles got past the A’s, 8-3.
Hoal was supported by an RBI single from Hank Schaaf, a sacrifice fly by Ben Park and another key hit by Nate Ade.
Danny Honeychurch’s sparkling catch of a base-loaded line drive helped quell an A’s rally, while Schaaf, Derek Lerman, Owen Schwab and Hoal also provided solid fielding plays.
Lerman and Ade also were strong on the mound.
