Runs, runs and more runs in DLL majors games

From page B3 | March 18, 2014 |

Lots and lots of runs highlighted the first full week of Davis Little League majors competition.

Home runs, key relief pitching and field gems jammed the highlights.

Here’s a look at what transpired …

Mets 14, Braves 10 — Nate Thompson was 3-for-3 with three runs batted in and Adam Hasson tripled, singled and drove in a run as the Mets banged out 10 hits.

Brandon Folb had three RBIs and Saul Israel had two.

Mark Dantanagan pitched a scoreless first inning of the Mets’ season.

Meanwhile, Will Fehrenbacher knocked in three Braves’ runs and Cody Taylor delivered two more. Kel Williams and Tomas Fong — who turned in an unassisted double play — also had RBIs.

Blue Jays 9, A’s 6 — Iain Smith blasted a three-run homer to fuel a five-run, last-inning rally. Smith went 3-for-3 in the victory.

Brad Sleuter, Cade Sanders and Grant Chastain all went 2-for-3 in the come-from-behind effort.

Griffin Shorts closed things out, coming on in the bottom of the sixth with two outs and bases loaded.

For the A’s, Ethan Ramos and Joby Antony both had two singles and Ty Soderquist, Josh Catacutan, Aramis Westfall and Owen Lingbloom each added safeties.

Ramos contributed a web gem at third and fanned five while pitching. Jordan Painter and Brennan Peiffer also pitched well.

Yankees 8, Braves 5 — Matoshi Bulkeley homered and good pitching from Robert Emmons and Krishan Parbhu sealed the deal for the Yanks.

Demetrius Hyder had two hits and Joshua Yoon singled and scored twice.

Brave Sean O’Hara smacked a three-run homer in the second and Kel Williams had a first-inning, two-run shot.

Reds 7, Mets 4 — Josh Davis doubled and scored twice for the winners, with Ethan Lo adding a single and double.

Pitcher Davis had a 1-2-3 fifth inning.

For the Mets, Mark Datanagan drove in two runs, while Nick Haverluck pitched a scoreless sixth and recorded a web gem.

Twins 23, A’s 9 — A grand slam, a double and a single by Jackson Chavira were part of the Twins’ onslaught as Payne Barksdale contributed a round-tripper of his own and Tyler Herrera banged out three hits.

Luis Garibay doubled and singled, Jose Romero had two singles and Nathan Coleman and Zane Bertero added hits.

Romero joined Brady Nelson to pitch six solid innings. Jason Henkel, Kooper Kjanka and Herrera were strong afield.

Josh Catacutan blasted a three-run homer for the A’s, Ethan Ramos added a two-run blast and Jordan Painter smacked a solo round-tripper.

Ramos fanned five in two innings, supported by Catacutan’s slick fielding play.

Blue Jays 18, Mets 8 — Every Blue Jay reached base safely with Cade Sanders contributing a three-run jack and a double. Mark Scheiber and Grafton Shorts had key doubles.

Bradley Sleuter, Iain Smith, Nate Barclift and Sanders pitched well. Web gems came from Scheiber, Shorts and Grant Chastain.

Saul Israel was 2-for-3 with a double for the Mets, Ian Hawes was 2-for-3 and Adam Hasson doubled.

Nicholas Haverlock walked twice, as did Cole Bertrand (who was also hit by a pitch).

Kieffer Jones threw a successful two innings.

Yankees 8, A’s 7 — Jordan Painter smacked his first home run on Opening Day as the A’s three-run, sixth-inning rally came up just short.

Josh Catacutan singled and doubled, Ethan Ramos had two singles and Joby Antony singled as Antony, Ramos (four strikeouts), Owen Lingbloom and Brennan Peiffer pitched well.

Giants 10, Red Sox 10 — In a see-saw game shortened by curfew, Emry Lee’s two hits drove in four runs for the Giants.

Robert Silver also had two hits and two RBIs.

Jacob Schnieder allowed but one hit, a walk and two unearned runs in two innings of work. He fanned five.

(The Red Sox did not submit a recap)

Yankees 17, Twins 6 — Adam Dapkewicz and Matoshi Bulkeley each had three hits (including doubles) and Garrett Emmons reached base four times (two walks, two singles) for the winners.

In Dapkewicz’s two innings of relief, he struck out six. Not to be outdone, Emmons entered the game later with the bases loaded and nobody out and fanned the side.

Joshua Yoon, Demetrius Hyder and Krishan Parbhu turned in terrific fielding plays.

Giants 14, Dodgers 3 — Scoring six runs in each of the first two frames, the Giants saw six players drive in at least one run in the victory.

Antonio Martin, Jaret Navarro and Luke Dugger each had two RBIs, while Jake Schneider (2-for-3),  Conor Hedin and Robbie Silver each drove in one.

Schneider and Dugger each pitched innings in which they struck out the side. Colin Carter, Navarro and Nick Paciulla pitched strongly.
