One recent DLL Majors contest features 38 runs

From page B2 | May 20, 2014 |

If you like runs — and you weren’t at Saturday’s Braves-Dodgers Davis Little League Majors-division game — you missed an extravaganza.

Scoring at least three runs in each of the five innings, the Braves topped the Dodgers, 25-13.

The Tribe got homers from Joey Asta, Luke Carrell, Kel Williams and Cody Taylor while shortstop Cameron DeMasi turned in a web gem to cut off an opponent’s uprising.

Chris D’Angelo and Sean O’Hara smacked round-trippers for the Dodgers — O’Hara’s blast winding up in the parking lot behind the left-field fences.

Zane Schouten doubled twice and Nolan Bitners, Zach Purnell, Cooper Walsh and Caleb Sweet added to the offense.

In other Majors-division play …

Blue Jays 12, A’s 11 — A six-run third inning was highlighted by Mark Studer’s two-run dinger as Cade Sanders went 3-for-3 for the winners. Owen Carr’s hit plated two key runs afterhe pitched a 1-2-3 top of the third.

For the A’s, Josh Catacutan homered and doubled to drive home four runners while Ethan Ramos added a three-run circuit clout.

Ty Soderquist, Owen Lingbloom, Joby Antony (two hits), Carson Bain, Brennan Peiffer, Maston Johnstone (two hits) and Avery Turkovich were offensively sound.

Lingbloom had a web gem and Antony and Johnstone combined for a first-to-home double play.

Giants 10, Mets 4 — Luke Dugger and Nick Paciulla had two hits and Colin Carter scored three times in the win.

Carter’s mound duty included three innings for the win. Jaret Navarro came on in relief.

Nico Dwyer drove in two runs and Emma Dean scored twice.

For the Mets, Keiffer Jones had his second straight outing with a home run. Damon Bains added a round-tripper of his own and Adam Hasson and Saul Isabel had two hits each. Nick Haverlock added a double.

Liam Sheehan fanned four batters in 1 1/3 innings and Nate Thompson struck out the side in his inning.

Yankees 5, A’s 1 — Garrett Emmons allowed one run and four hits while striking out 10 in 5 2/3 innings — and put an exclamation point on the game with a two-run homer.

Teammate Elliot Greve also hit a two-run ding dong and Juan Soto added two hits.

Krishan Parbhu picked up the save.

Ethan Ramos had an RBI as Josh Catacutan (double, single), Jordan Painter and Brennan Peiffer got the A’s hits.

Pfeiffer and Ramos were on the mound.

Braves 10, Giants 4 — A homer, two RBIs and two runs scored by Will Fehrenbacher were part of a 10-hit Braves attack.

Luke Carrell, Cameron DeMasi, Tomas Fong, Kevin Coleman, Ben Busano, Joey Asta and Kel Williams — who scored three runs scored — were in on the offensive fun.

On the hill, Fehrenbacher and Asta scattered five hits and combined for six strikeouts.

Giant Colin Carter drove in two and Luke Dugger scored twice with Emry Lee and Nick Paciulla contributing at the plate.

Red Sox 5, Twins 5 — Adam Lovitt went 3-for-3 with a double and run batted in while Gabe Dirksen homered for the Sox.

Gabriel Lee tripled and Ben Park doubled to go with Joseph Fields’ RBI single.

Mikey Finerty whiffed six in three scoreless innings of mound work.

(The Twins did not submit a recap)

Giants 9, Dodgers 1 — Brilliant three-hit pitching from Nick Paciulla, Colin Carter and Jaret Navarro was aided by Antonio Martin’s 3-for-4 game, which included a home run and four RBIs.

Luke Dugger went 2-for-4 for the winners and Paciulla and Navarro scored twice each. Carter fanned seven and Navarro struck out six.

Sean O’Hara’s last-inning inside-the-park round-tripper and Chris D’Angelo’s two hits were the extent of the Dodger offense.

Zach Purnell, Roland Watts and O’Hara had web gems.

Mets 9, Reds 4 — Keiffer Jones belted one over the fence and Nate Thompson (triple), Cole Bertrand (double and single) and Mark Datanagan (single) added to the Mets’ bat brigade.

Ethan Lo struck out seven, Nick Haverlock picked up the pitching win and Brandon Kolb and Ian Hawes were sterling afield.

(The Reds did not submit a recap)

Blue Jays 11, Red Sox 6 — Mikey Finerty slugged a two-run homer and Jack Walsh added a pair of two-baggers, but it wasn’t enough for the Sox.

Matthew Young, Braeden Schimmel (two hits) and Adam Lovitt swung effective bats.

Gabe Dirksen, Owen Millward and Jaheim Smith turned in field gems, while Gabriel Lee and Young pitched well.

(The Blue Jays did not submit a recap)

Braves, Reds (no score given) — Will Fehrenbacher hammered a three-run homer and Joey Asta added a two-run circuit clout for the Braves.

Kel Williams was 3-for-3 and didn’t allow a run while pitching — thanks to web gems from Cameron DeMasi, Asta and Fehrenbacher.

(The Reds did not submit a recap)
