Picnic Day, good weather and memorial highlight DLL majors week

By
From page B2 | April 15, 2014 |

Picnic Day, beautiful weather and an emotional game played with a late friend in mind highlighted another packed week of Davis Little League majors competition.

Here’s a look back at what happened …

Dodgers 15, Giants 14 — Sean O’Hara and Zane Schouten blasted three-run homers as the winners came back from a 14-3 deficit by scoring six runs in each of the last two innings.

The game was played in memory of former North Davis Elementary teacher Paulene Bitners, who died of cancer April 6. Bitners’ son Nolan is a Dodger and her husband Andrew helps coach the squad.

After a moment of silence to start the game, the Giants jumped on top with a nine-run third inning.

But hits by Zach Brooks, Chris D’Angelo and Charles Karagosian aided the two big flies before Schouten added a game-winning single in the final frame.

O’Hara struck out the side in the first and turned in two web gems. Roland Watts also was strong in the field.

(The Giants did not submit a recap)

A’s 10, Yankees 3 — Home runs from Jordan Painter and Ethan Ramos (who was 3-for-3) helped the A’s cruise.

Ramos fanned six on the mound and Colby Mayer added four strikeouts while Josh Catacutan got two hits. Ty Soderquist made a terrific infield play.

For the Yanks, Demetrius Hyder and Adam Dapkewicz each got two hits and Malcolm Burns had a web gem.

Braves 7, Dodgers 4 — Luke Carrell doubled and drove in two while Conner Malone went 2-for-2 for the Tribe.

Ben Busan made a nice catch and Tomas Fong’s slide got him home with an important run.

Chris D’Angelo recorded three straight strikeouts and hit well while Zach Brooks and Zane Schouten were solid at bat for the Dodgers, who wore pink hats in memory of Paulene Bitners.

Twins 6, Giants 5 — Emma Dean and Emry Lee each smacked two hits to drive in two runs for the Giants.

Luke Dugger, Jake Schneider, Colin Carter and Jaret Navarro also added hits.

(The Twins did not submit a recap)

Reds 7, Braves 3 — Ethan Lo hit his first round-tripper and scored twice in the victory.

Cash McCrory doubled, singled and scored two runs while Ben Skinner and Ken Wanderstadt threw two strong innings each. Lo got the save, thanks in part to a Zach Anderson web gem.

(The Braves did not submit a recap)

Blue Jays 7, Twins 6 — Nate Barclift’s two-run blast fueled a fifth-inning Jays’ rally — then in the sixth stole home for the winning run.

Barclift had opened the final inning with a single, then stole second and third before his ultimate theft.

Grant Chastain’s hit drove in another key tally.

Grafton Shots and Iain Smith had slick fielding plays.

Reds 12, Mets 1 — Ken Wanderstadt spanked a grand slam home run as the Reds exploded for nine runs in the fourth.

Wanderstadt had two other hits and Caden Difuntorum doubled, singled and scored twice. Ian Biscardi walked twice and scored.

Cash McCrory, Giacomo Sorrentino and Ethan Lo pitched well.

Reds Nicholas Cooper walked and scored with Nick Haverlock getting his team’s hit.

Blue Jays 13, Red Sox 8 — Iain Smith cracked a three-run dinger and Owen Carr went 2-for-3 (scoring twice) for the winners.

George Simmons was strong on the mound as a nine-run second trumped the Red Sox six-run bottom — which including a homer from Jack Walsh, who went 3-for-3 with two RBIs.

Sox hitter Mikey Finerty tripled, singled and drove home two while Jaheim Smith singled and scored.

Jack Walsh went 3-for-3 with a homer and Gabriel Lee (2-for-3) scored twice.

Ben Park and Lee pitched well and Ewen Millwood threw in a web gem.

Note: Thanks to Leslie Honeychurch for coordinating the submission and collection of Davis Little League game recap sheets. If you don’t see your favorite team’s players mentioned in each Tuesday’s DLL Page, talk to that squad’s manager or scorekeeper about turning in summaries.
