DLL roundup: Youngsters back in action as A’s follow HRs to victory

By From page B2 | April 08, 2014

Finally, the kids of Davis Little League are back on the playing field.

After a week of spring break followed by several days of heavy rain and closed fields, the local youths got a handful of games in.

Here’s a look back at recent action …


A’s 8, Reds 2 — Ethan Ramos drove in four runs on a double and homer as his A’s used a five-run fifth inning to break open a close game.

Josh Catacutan also doubled and homered while Joby Antony added two singles and an RBI.

Jordan Painter, Brennan Peiffer, Colby Mayer and Owen Lingbloom each got safeties in the win.

Ramos also dazzled on the mound, striking out all six batters he faced in his two innings of work. Mayer fanned four in his two frames and Lingbloom and Peiffer were strong in their mound appearances.

Mets 6, Giants 3 — The Mets held off a last-inning Giants rally and prevailed — thanks, in part, to Brandon Folb’s double and three runs batted in.

Kiefer Jones was 3-for-3 with an RBI while Liam Sheehan and Nate Thompson each struck out four batters in their shutout mound work. Saul Israel also hurled a scoreless inning.

Damon Bains scored after being hit by a pitch.

Marlins 9, Tigers 8 — Tanner Snow’s triple cleared the bases in the final frame, bringing the Marlins from behind.

Key walks to Will Ackerman, Brian Chen, Hawk Hechtl, Colin Grow and Nate Fechner were weaved in with a two-run single by Aidan Cohen during a five-run sixth that gave the Tigers an 8-6 advantage.

But the Marlins rallied for three in the bottom of the inning to pull off the victory.

Asher Reising and Ray Oldham each singled twice for the winners. Ansel Tucker and Reising scored twice and Eli Grote tallied after his first-inning double.

Carlos Campos came home after a hit and two steals and Dylan Forbes walked three times.

Sean Layman pitched well to quell the Tigers’ sixth-inning uprising and was credited with a web gem, as was Trajan Clark. Snow had five strikeouts in two innings of relief and Grote hurled a three-up, three-down frame.

Tiger Drew Anderson went 3-for-3, including a double. Brian Chin fanned four of the eight batters he faced.

Nationals 13, Giants 8 — Chris Sacramento tripled home two runs, Asher Cohn doubled in another run while Alex Piexoto and James Davis each doubled and Michael Flood and John Schacherbauer each singled for the Giants.

Diamondbacks 9, Marlins 3 — A nifty fielding play by William Dunne started a double play to end a rally but the Marlins came up short.

Tanner Snow contributed a two-run single and Dylan Forbes drew a bases-loaded walk, getting the Marlins on the board in the third inning.

Snow and Eli Grote were solid on the mound.
