Homer-happy Dodgers get a DLL Majors win

By
From page B2 | March 25, 2014 |

The Dodgers hit a pair of three-run dingers in a victory over the Mets on Friday as Davis Little League Majors action was intense this week.

Here’s a look at what happened …

Dodgers 16, Mets 9: Home runs from Sean O’Hara and Nolan Bitners each plated three runs for the winners.

Bitners dedicated his second-inning shot to his mom Paulene, a North Davis Elementary School teacher who is battling breast cancer.

O’Hara also pitched well for the Dodgers, striking out the side on just 13 pitches in the third inning.

While his teammates were using their bats, Chris D’Angelo used his legs to help his team, scampering from third and just sliding in under the tag for a steal of home.

Meanwhile, Adam Hasson hit a home run of his own for the Mets and Keiffer Jones added a two run double.

Other hitting contributions came from Saul Israel and Cole Bertrand, who had two hits each.

Red Sox 9, Blue Jay 8: The Sox scored two runs in the bottom of the sixth inning to post a walk-off win.

Pitcher Mikey Finerty got the victory thanks to some clutch hitting from Ben Park, who was 2-for-3 with a double and two runs batted in. Gabe Dirksen also had a two-baggers and knocked in a pair of runs, while Joseph Fields reached base three times and scored a run.

For the Blue Jays, Nate Barclift homered and had two runs and versatile players Ian Smith and Cade Sanders each pitched well and went 2-for-3.

George Simmons also had two hits and scored two runs while Joseph Rigor added a safety.

David Studer was a terror on the base paths, swiping three bags, and Grant Chastain made a great defensive play in center.

Braves 14, A’s 3: Backing winning pitcher Luke Carrell with 11 hits, the Braves used a seven-run third inning to take control.

In the victory, Cameron DeMasi had two hits and two RBIs while Kel Williams and Thomas Fong knocked in two runs apiece. Ben Busano also had two RBIs and Jeremiah Jones added a hit and a run scored.

Despite the Braves staff combining for seven strikeout, A’s batters Josh Catacuttan, Jordan Painter, Ethan Ramos, Colby Mayer and Brennan Peiffer each had hits with Catacuttan contributing three singles and Peiffer doubling and adding an RBI.

Ramos stuck out four in two innings pitched while Peiffer, Mayer and Owen Lingbloom, who also had a web gem at first base, threw well for the A’s.

Reds 8, Giants 7: A four-run sixth inning nearly brought the Giants back, but the Reds held on to make pitcher Ben Skinner a winner.

Cash McCrory and Kenneth Wanderstadt each pitched scoreless innings and McCrory contributed a key triple.

Ethan Lo led the victors at the plate, going 3-for-3 with an RBI and a run scored.

(The Giants did not submit a recap)

Yankees 10, Twins 5: Pitchers Malcolm Burns, Krishan Parbhu, Matoshi Bulkeley and winner Elliot Greve combined to limit the powerful Twins offense.

They got help from Demetrius Hyder and Adam Dapkewicz, who each made sparkling catches for the Yanks.

Hyder and Parbhu paced the offense with two hits apiece.

Red Sox 10, Giants 8: The teams combined for 14 runs in the final inning and a half and the Sox scored just enough to hold on.

Matthew Young was strong on the mound to get the win, while Owen Millward homered among his two hits and knocked in four runs.

Mikey Finerty was 3-for-3 with a double and an RBI and Gabriel Lee’s two hits included a double. Lee had three runs batted in.
