With spring break gone and glorious weather supporting the heavy schedule, the Davis Little League Complex was a beehive of activity last week.

Here’s a rundown of the Majors-division action …

Brewers 14, Cardinals 2 — Tyler Brown went 3-for-3 with two doubles and a single and Ava McCray, Jaret Navarro, Nathan Bitners and Kai Taylor banged out two hits each for the winners.

Emma Dean doubled, was hit by a pitch and walked twice. Andy Knox added a single.

Meanwhile, Brown, Taylor and McCray shared the mound duties while Matt Haas, Will Ziegler, Cody Taylor and Dorian Anaya were strong in the field.

The Cards were led at the plate by Haley Sue Benson (single and double) and hits by Langston Gains, Chris D’Angelo (double) and Travis Cosgrave.

Ethan Feil, Cosgrave and D’Angelo also shined on defense.

Red Sox 14, Orioles 10 — In a slugfest, Timmy Chin homered and singled while Mike Finerty went 4-for-4 and Payne Barksdale added two doubles and a single for the Sox.

Finerty’s big day included two singles, a double and a triple.

Nate Stoltz doubled in his two-hit outing, Collin Yee spanked a pair of safeties and Jack Chavira added a double. Matoshi Bulkeley had a key RBI ad Malcom Burns and Mason Barrette singled.

For the O’s, a six-run first inning wasn’t quite enough, but their bats nonetheless sang throughout the contest.

Kayden Hoal smashed a three-run homer, Kyle Kordana went 2-for-2 and Nate Ade, Owen Schwab and Derek Lerman posted timely hits.

Hank Schaaf, Brennan Peiffer, Tyler Herrrera, Michael Leistikow and Ade were standouts afield and Danny Honeychurch was unstoppable on the bases.

Nationals 20, Brewers 11 — An 11-run eighth inning — highlighted by L.J. Schwartz’s grand slam home run — made the difference.

Zach Bergevin singled twice for the winners and Schwartz, Lev Farris Goldenberg, Jeff Basso and Adam Hasson cracked doubles. Cameron DeMasi and Kenny Wanderstat had important singles.

Schwartz, Farris Goldenberg and Caden Difuntorum shared mound duties.

Meanwhile, the Brew Crew’s Tyler Brown had a day to remember — blasting a grand slam and a two-run homer in a 4-for-5 game. Matt Haass doubled, singled and was hit by a pitch.

Angels 7, Giants 7 — RBI doubles from Nate Barclift and George Simmons were augmented by Iain Smith’s round-tripper and Sam Seiler’s two RBIs for the Halos.

Mickey Barr, Casey Freese, Cade Sanders and Will Smith turned in web gems.

Daring base running by Giacomo Sorrentino and Eric Lengtat kept the Giants in the game — and big hits from Aedan Enriquez, Adam Sanchez and Lengtat assured the tie.

Marlins 15, Cardinals 5 — A five-run third inning outburst was fueled by hits from Shinye Ho (home run), Joseph Cobb and Finn Thomsen as the Marlins then cruised — thanks to a nine-run fourth.

Connor Hedin’s safety began that epic fourth, while Thomsen stole home in the rally.

Outfielder Ho, second baseman Caden Neel and first baseman Sean O’Hara were terrific on defense.

For the Cards, Langston Gains singled, walked, scored and drove in two runs. Alex Argyres and Jack Henry Grote each singled, walked and came home.

Ethan Feil and Grote pitched well, fanning eight in their four innings of work.

Orioles 11, Angels 7 — Home runs by winning pitcher Nate Ade and Kayden Hoal were the difference for the winners.

Brennan Peiffer went 2-for-2 for the Orioles, Owen Schwab had two hits in three trips and Ben Park stroked a double. Kyle Kordana, Hank Schaaf and Roland Watts each singled.

Peiffer and Schwab excelled in the field and Hoal and Derek Lerman (save) provided strong relief pitching.

Iain Smith’s double and Lance Prussel’s single each produced two runs batted in for the Angels.

Will Smith turned in a double play, while Prussel, Sam DeWit, George Simmons and Nate Coleman played their positions with aplomb.

A’s 6, Red Sox 5 — Mason Barrette scored twice, Payne Barksdale hit a double and scored, Collin Yee and Timmy Chin had running-scoring hits and Jack Chavira singled and scored — but the Sox came up a run short.

Kooper Kijanka also singled.

Matoshi Bulkeley, Yee and Nate Stoltz pitched well and Barskdale recorded an unassisted double play.

Nationals 13, Diamondbacks 5 — Kenny Wanderstadt’s grand slam set the tone as the Nats banged out 14 hits.

In addition to Wanderstadt adding a single, Noah Faber doubled and singled, Zach Bergevin and Lev Farris Goldenberg had a pair of safeties, while Caden Difuntorum, L.J. Schwartz, J.B. Basso, Cameron DeMasi, Nathan Faber and Jacob Schneider all reached on hits.

Tigers 11, A’s 2 — Scoring eight runs in the fifth frame, the winners managed to break open an otherwise close game.

Jack Walsh homered and singled and Gabel Longshore was 3-for-4, including a double. Marc Antony Fields was 2-for-3 with a double and Adam Dapkewicz and Derek Mundy were solid on the mound.
