Ethan Ramos blasted a third-inning grand slam homer (while going 3-for-4) and picked up the pitching save as the A’s topped the Tigers, 12-11, in extra innings in recent Davis Little League Majors-division play.

The see-saw game featured lots of offense as Gabel Longshore’s first-inning home run pulled the Cats even early. After Ramos’ granny, singles by Derek Mundy, Garrett Emmons, Longshore and Mark Fields pulled the Tigers to 6-5.

Jack Carsel and Jack Dapkewicz had RBI singles in the fourth to give the Cats the lead, but the A’s came back — including their two-run seventh inning.

Mark Studer, Carsel (last-frame double) and Emmons added other Tiger hits, however, Gabe Murray scored the game-tying A’s run in the sixth and Patrick Stodden singled, walked twice and scored three times.

Billy Easton, in his three innings of work, struck out five and got the win. Theo Blewitt, Longshore, Emmons and Mundy pitched well and Jack Walsh turned in a web gem in the seventh, stranding additional A’s runners. Shaan Nahal also excelled in the field.

In other DLL Majors action last week …

Nationals 7, Cardinals 4 — Noah Faber, Zach Bergevin and L.J. Schwartz struck out 13 and allowed no hits in their five innings of work as the Nats used a six-run third inning to prevail.

Bergevin went 3-for-3 with a double, Adam Hasson singled twice, Lev Farris Goldenberg doubled and Faber and Jeffrey Basso contributed singles. Basso and Hasson were hustlers once on base.

For the Cards, Alex Argyres drove in two and scored a run, and Ethan Feil, Chris D’Angelo and Silas Kirsch all had singles. Jack Henry Grote pitched two scoreless innings and Damon Bains was solid defensively.

Diamondbacks 18, Red Sox 3 — Zach Carrell’s big day included a pitching win, a 3-for-4 day at the plate (with a homer) and four runs scored for the D-Backs.

Cole Bertan tripled, walked twice and scored three times. Andrew Bell singled and stole two bases, Jalen Rosario went 1-for-1 and scored and Ethan Lo walked twice and made two fly-ball putouts in right.

(The Red Sox did not submit a recap)

Brewers 6, Orioles 6 — Derek Lerman’s two-run dinger and Ben Park’s single (which drove in two) helped the O’s secure the tie.

Owen Schwab, Kayden Hoal and Nate Ade each singled.

But it might have been the defense — paced by Tyler Herrera, Kyle Kordana, Brennan Peiffer, Hoal and Lerman —  that saved the day.

Roland Watts added a scoreless fourth from the mound.

Kai and Cody Taylor pitched well for the Brew Crew and Tyler Brown hit a first-inning homer. Ava McCray tripled and singled and Will Ziegler and Nathan Bitners each singled twice.

Matt Haass was slick afield.

Marlins 6, Nationals 5 — Sean O’Hara’s walk-off double in the sixth brought in Shinye Ho and capped the slugger’s huge game as the Fish prevailed. O’Hara had earlier smacked a home run, and drove in four runs for the game.

Tough-luck Nationals’ pitcher Lev Farris Goldenberg struck out 10 in his five innings of work.

For the winners, James Hergesell singled twice, scored and had an RBI as Caden Neel also scored after his hit.

Ho fanned eight in his innings pitched and Nate Thompson was strong on defense and while on the mound. Neel turned in a sparkling play, too.

Bergevin hit a two-run homer and L.J. Schwartz, Jacob Schneider, Adam Hasson and Farris Goldenberg all singled.

Catcher Noah Faber threw a runner out at second and backstop Caden Difuntorum picked off a runner at first.

Giants 5, Diamondbacks 2 — Giacomo Sorrentino and Adrian Sanchez hit home runs and Aedan Enriquez got the win in the season-ending win for coach Doug Parscal.

Cameron Knutson and Will Fehrenbacher singled, with Knuston scoring.

Luke Carrell combined with Fehrenbacher and Knutson to perform well on the mound and Zach Carrell threw a runner out trying to steal third.

Cardinals 13, Red Sox 8 — Alex Argyres and Ethan Gross hit their first home runs to pace the 10-hit attack.

Chris D’Angelo (who added a single), Argyres and Gross each collected doubles.

Sila Kirsch and Argyres turned in sterling center-field catches. Kirsch’s snag saved two runs in the first inning.

Red Sox big bat Collin Yee doubled twice, singled and drove home three runs, while Payne Barksdale and Mike Finerty each doubled and singled.

Kooper Kijanka tripled, Owen Millward had a two-base spank and Malcolm Burns and Matoshi Bulkeley added singles.

Jack Chavira, Nate Stoltz, Yee and Kijanka pitched well and Mason Barrette contributed a good catch in right field.

Angels 15, Orioles 7 — Derek Lerman’s two-out grand slam homer brought the O’s within a run in the third, but the Angels scored eight times in the final three innings to win.

Hank Schaaf was 2-for-3 with a double and Kayden Hoal and Owen Schwab had hits.

Danny Honeychurch let his glove do the talking with two nice plays and Kyle Kordana, Nate Ade, Roland Watts, Brennan Peiffer, Ben Park and Schwab had solid days in the field.
