Derek Lerman went 2-for-2 — including a single and a three-run homer — as his Orioles and the Nationals went toe-to-toe in a 6-6 tie this week in the Davis Little League’s Majors division.

Kyle Kordana had a two-run double, Brennan Peiffer added two singles and Nate Ade, Kayden Hoal and Danny Honeychurch had important singles.

Catcher Ade threw out two runners and Ben Park, Hank Schaaf and Lerman were solid afield.

Reliever Hoal was tough in a scoreless sixth inning.

For the Nats, their six hits came from six different batters — Nathan Faber and Zach Bergevin (doubles) and Jonathan Plazola, Jeffrey Basso, Kenny Wanderstadt and L.J. Schwartz (singles).

Cameron DeMasi contributed a slick fielding play.

And the Majors action didn’t stop there …

Red Sox 7, Angels 6 — Owen Millwood’s seventh-inning double plated Collin Yee with the winning run as Sox slugger Payne Barksdale’s three-run homer earlier brought his team from two runs down.

Mason Barratee, Nate Stoltz and Millward scored in the earlier innings and Jack Chavira’s two-run double in the first got the Red Sox off to a fast start.

But these Angels were game …

Will Smith smacked a home run, Cade Sanders added a double and Lance Pressl singled.

Sam DeWit and George Simmons had terrific running catches and Nate Coleman recorded a web gem at first.

Pressl pitched well.

Other good fielding plays came from Sox players Timmy Chin and Mike Finerty. Kooper Kijanka and Matoshi Bulkeley pitched well, with Yee picking up the save.

Nationals 4, Cardinals 3 — Another extra-inning contest saw Caden Difuntorum drive in the winning run in the seventh.

Beside Difuntorum’s double, Lev Farris Goldenberg and Nathan Faber each tripled and Zach Bergevin and Jeffrey Basson singled.

Pitchers L.J. Schwartz and Farris Goldenberg worked the Nats out of danger, with the latter eventually getting the win.

Basso and Jonathan Plazola made nice catches.

For the Cards — who outhit the winners, 7-5 — Haley Sue Benson smacked an RBI double, Alex Argyres scored after his double and Ethan Gross and Robbie Silver added base hits. Gross also walked twice.

Langston Gains and Silas Kirsch turned in web gems while Gains, Ethan Feil and Travis Cosgrave pitched effectively.

A’s 8, Angels 7 — Dane Peterson scored in the sixth inning to give the A’s their margin of victory.

Billy Easton’s home run and double were huge hits for the winners and Nick Archer made the most of his two walks.

First baseman Josh Catacutan and third baseman Ryan Berry were outstanding in the field while Charlie Easton turned an unassisted double play.

The A’s held on despite Iain Smith’s three-run dinger and Nate Barclift’s timely double.

Mick Barr, Lance Pressl, Will Smith and Sam DeWit were solid afield for the Angels. Will Smith, Mark Scheiber, Barclift and Prussl shared the mound duties.

Tigers 5, Red Sox 3 — Timmy Chin doubled, singled and drove in a run for the Sox as Mike Finerty (double) and Collin Yee and Jack Chavira (singles) added safeties, helping score Kooper Kijanka and Owen Millward.

Matoshi Bulkeley threw four strong innings with Nate Stoltz in relief.

Payne Barksdale nailed a runner at the plate and Yee had a couple of nice catches in center field.

(The Tigers did not submit a recap)

A’s 10, Angels 10 — Billy Easton (who also added a single) and Ethan Ramos both homered and drove in three runs for the A’s.

Josh Catacutan launched three doubles in as many at-bats and Patrick Stodden and Gabe Murray both went 3-for-3 with an RBI.

Charlie Easton singled, doubled and drove in a run, with Dane Peterson also plating a teammate.

Pitchers Ryan Berry, Catacutan and Charlie Easton were strong.

Orioles 3, Giants 1 — Nate Ade, Derek Lerman and Kayden Hoal combined to limit the Giants to five hits. Ade got the win, Hoal the save.

Derek Lerman clubbed a two-run homer as both teams did all their offensive damage in the first inning.

Brenna Peiffer was 2-for-3, Hank Schaaf doubled and Ade threw in a single.

Tyler Herrera turned in two sparkling defensive plays, teaming with Hank Schaaf to get an important out at first on one of his dandy doings.
