It was a brilliant afternoon all the way around.

With glorious weather for Davis Little League’s Opening Day, the parade of players, first-pitch ceremonies and event presentations, the baseball that followed hinted at yet another action-packed spring season.

Here’s a look back at the weekend’s majors-division and AAA action.


Reds 9, Dodgers 6: Breaking a 5-5 tie with a four-run fourth inning, the Reds followed two doubles by Ethan Lo to victory.

Robert Schacherbauer and Josh Davis contributed two-run doubles as Davis’ two-bagger gave the Reds the lead for good.

Lo threw a shutout second frame, striking out the side, and Cash McCrory fanned two in a nice inning of relief.

Jack Johnson’s web gem at second accounted for the game’s final out.

Meanwhile, Dodger Charlie Karagozian singled twice, score twice (including on a steal of home) and drove in a run.

Giffey Syzmoniak doubled and scored, Zack Brooks doubled and caught a liner at second, while Caleb Sweet and Nolan Bitners both singled and scored.

Sean O’Hara hurled a shutout inning for the Dodgers.

Braves 5, Twins 5: Brady Nelson did a great job as the Twins’ starting pitcher and hit a double in the deadlock.

Maya Parker and Payne Barksdale came on in relief of Nelson, while Nate Coleman and Dante Romero doubled, sparking a four-run third-inning rally.

Brave Cameron DeMasi was 2-for-3 with a triple and a pair of runs scored, and Kel Williams also had two hits. Will Fehrenbacher scored twice.

Tomas Tong, Fehrenbacher, Williams and DeMasi shared pitching duties, combining to strike out nine.

Yankees 8, Dodgers 7: The Yankees scored twice in the bottom of the last inning to clinch the win after a see-saw game.

The Yanks led 1-0 before the A’s scored four in the third. The Yankees came back in the bottom of the inning with five runs of their own, but the A’s went back ahead, 7-6, thanks to a three-run final frame.

But when Garrett Emmons stole home with the winning run, the rallies were over.

Emmons singled, walked and smacked a two-run homer, while Malcolm Burns singled and walked for the Yanks.

Emmons also pitched two scoreless innings, fanning six. Reliever Adam Dapkewicz also struck out six and Demetrius Hyder picked up the save.


Marlins 11, Giants 5: With Ansel Tucker getting two hits, the Marlins used consecutive five-run innings to capture the contest

Sean Laymon and Vance Tongren also got hits, with Tongren’s safety driving in two runs. Laymon, Tucker and Tongren each scored three times.

Tanner Snow struck out six Giants and Carlos Miguel Campos turned in a web gem.

Eli Grote pitched a scoreless fifth inning for the Marlins.

Giants James Benson (a double and three RBIs) and Asher Cohn (single with two RBIs) were their team’s leading hitters. Benson also turned in a strong second-inning pitching performance.

Nationals 16, Yankees 2: Logan Sanchez, Max Spatz and Keane Deas led the Nats at the plate, while Zach Agnew’s scoreless pitching performance helped the winners jump on top.

Spatz stole two bases in the first inning, leading to the Nationals’ fifth run.
