DLL majors matchups make for an exciting week

With the Davis Little League season in full swing, last week featured some majors-division teams putting up big numbers and other contests going down to the wire.

Here’s a look at what transpired …

Diamondbacks 5, Cardinals 3: The game was tied at 1-1 before the D’backs plated four runners in the top of the sixth, then barely held off the Cards in the bottom half.

Early on, with Luke Carrell (three strikeouts) pitching two hitless innings and shortstop Cameron Knutson’s heads-up fielding saving a run, the Diamondbacks shut the Cardinals down. Later, Will Feherbauter close the game out, posting one strikeout.

The winners were paced at the plate by Knutson (3-for-3, run), Jalen Rosario (two hits, two runs) and Zach Carell (two hits, run).

Cardinal pitcher Jack Henry Grote did his part to hold the score down early, tossing two shutouts innings while allowing just one hit and striking out two. He added a double and an RBI as Chris D’Angelo, Langston Bains, Ethan Gross and Eddie Armijo each had singles for the Cards.

Orioles 13, Red Sox 3: The O’s scored the first nine runs of the contest to pick up the victory.

Nate Ade and Kayden Hoal smacked two singles apiece for the winners, while other hits came from Brennan Peiffer (who scored a run on a wild pitch) and Derek Lerman, but the real key was great defense. Infielders Tyler Herrera, Ade, Hoal and Kyle Kordana were slick with the gloves and catcher Hank Schaaf threw to Owen Schwab to nab a runner attempting to steal.

Sox hitter Collin Lee notched a triple, two RBIs and a run scored, with Matoshi Bulkeley and Timmy Chin each contributing a single and a run. Malcolm Burns added an RBI, Bulkeley was strong on defense and solid pitching came from Yee, Mikey Finerty, Mason Barratte and Nate Stoltz.

Giants 12, Nationals 7: Adrian Sanchez blasted a home run to lead the G-men past the Nats.

The winners took advantage of Griffin Long’s good mound work and great defense from Joey Asta and Jack Johnson. Giacomo Sorentino and Luke Dugger were solid behind the plate.

For the Nationals, hitting contributions came from Nathan Faber (double, single), L.J. Schwartz (doubles, single), Zach Bergevin (two singles), Noah Faber, Adam Hasson and Caden Difuntorum.

A’s 12, Tigers 0: Billy Easton and Ryan Berry teamed on the mound to hold the Tigers without a run and each hit home runs in the A’s win.

Easton added three RBIs, giving the Easton family four on the day as Charlie Easton posted a single and a run batted in.

Additional offense came from Gabe Murray, who had two hits and an RBI, Ethan Ramos (two hits) and Patrick Stodden, with four A’s — Josh Catacutan, Jordan Painter, Nick Archer and Aaron Margolis — earning walks and eventually scoring runs.

(The Tigers did not submit a recap)

Marlins 9, Brewers 4: After the fish took a 5-1 lead in the first inning, Caden Neel struck out five in two innings, Kel Williams had three Ks in the fourth and Shinye Ho fanned five of the six batters he saw.

At the plate, Ho smashed a home run and a single, scored twice and had four RBIs, Nate Thompson posted two hits and a run scored, while Williams and Neal each added a hit, an RBI and a run. The rest of the Marlins offense came from Sean O’Hara (one hit, one run) and Aleksei Kaufman (1-for-2).

Diamondbacks 12, Cardinals 1: Team officials credit “outstanding pitching performances” from Zach Carrell (three scoreless innings, eight strikeouts) and Cameron Knutson for the victory.

Both also contributed at the plate with Carrell hitting a home run, reaching base three times and scoring twice. Knutson (two runs) and Cole Bertrand (three runs) also found themselves on base three times. Zane Schouten added a run scored for the D’backs and Ethan Lo had an RBI.

(The Cardinals did not submit a recap)

Marlins 17, Brewers 1: The Marlins found many different ways to score in the huge win.

Big hits came from Kel Williams, who had an RBI double in the first inning and Tyler Kim, whose shot to left brought home two more runs. In addition, Shinye Ho stole home in the top of the first, then blasted a grand slam in the fourth.

Sean O’Hara and Finn Thomsen each made sparkling plays afield, while Nate Thompson struck out two in the second inning and gave up no hits in the third.

(The Brewers did not submit a recap)

Angels 6, Red Sox 5: The Halos scored a run in the sixth inning to edge the Sox.

Casey Freese led the Angels hitters with two hits including a home run, Cade Sanders posted three hits and two RBIs and Lance Prussel doubled and knocked in a pair. Nate Coleman and Mark Scheiber added singles for the winners, who got strong defense from catchers Iain Smith and Sanders, along with a nifty catch by center fielder George Simmons.

Prussel’s pitching was dominating in the first inning, as he struck out three on 13 pitches.

For the Red Sox, Matoshi Bulkeley poked a pair of doubles and scored a run, while Collin Yee hit a two-run double as part of a five-run fourth inning. Mikey Finerty, Payne Barksdale and Timmy Chin each had a hit and scored a run to round out the offense.

The Sox saw Barksdale pitch two strong innings and Owen Millward and Kooper Kijanka also threw well.

Cardinals 16, Marlins 11: Jack Henry Grote’s four RBIs and Christopher D’Angelo’s three runs batted in paced the Cards’ offensive outburst.

Eddie Armijo knocked in two more runs and scored twice, matching Alex Aguyres, who added an RBI and had a sweet sliding catch in center field.

Travis Cosgrave’s five strikeouts led the Cardinal pitching staff, while Damon Bains and Grote also took the mound in the victory.

Shinye Ho’s grand slam and five RBIs gave the Marlins a chance, with other hits coming from Finn Thompson, Connor Hedin and Kel Williams (RBI). Caden Neel knocked in two runs and struck out the side in his one inning on the hill.
