Sacramento’s 4 RBIs paces AAA Giants’ Davis Little League victory

From page B2 | May 13, 2014 |

Chris Sacramento had a big day as the Giants scored in every inning of their 11-8 Davis Little League AAA-division win over the Yankees last week.

Sacramento’s key hits drove in four runs and, as a pitcher, the Giant recorded the last out of the game.

Trailing 7-0, the Yankees made a game of it, but their four-run, final-inning rally fell just short.

James Benson added an RBI triple for the Giants, Sean Gallagher’s runs-scoring double helped and James Davis contributed a double and single.

Yankee brothers Cooper (double, two RBIs) and Adam (double, RBI) Ferguson and Josh Ernst paced their team’s attack.

J.J. Guerrero swiped second, third and home while Teo Honda-Scully, Adam Ferguson and Matt Njoku turned in slick fielding plays.

In other AAA games …

Brewers 14, Marlins 6 — Grant Wallace was other-worldy, hitting a grand slam and triple as the Brewers’ bats were stirring up trouble in every inning.

Evan O’Neil doubled and singled, Cameron Nelson cracked a couple of singles, Clark Chen doubled and five other Brew Crew members — Cyrus Larson, Elias Currier, Marcus Donner, Kyle Chen and Carson Thompson — added key safeties.

Clark Chen fanned seven in three innings of scoreless work, while Lennon Weitraub and Eli Yasui struck out two each in relief.

With Asher Reising and Eli Grote driving in two runs each, the Marlins scored their six runs in the last two frames. Tanner Snow doubled and Carlos Lampos’ single drove in a run.

Sean Layman fanned two in his inning on the mound.

Cubs 15, Astros 8 — Rhys Navarro pitched four innings, striking out seven, to record the victory.

Mitchell Biscardi, Eli Vickstrom and Alex Arias paced the Cubs with three hits apiece. Navarro and Jason Firpo both doubled and singled, ehile Scott Inouye scored three times on two hits. Also scoring three times was Arias, with Vickstrom and Biscardi each coming home twice.

Josh Micke struck out two batters in two innings.

Max Samrick drove in three Astros’ runs and Neil Smith and Keaton and Collin Carpenter all had two hits.

Ian Lovitt and Keaton Carpenter were defensively sharp.

Angels 9, Rangers 5 — A five-run last inning gave the Angels the win.

Kurt Fischer (2-for-2 with an RBI and run) and Ethan Trinidad (double, two runs) led the attack.

Catcher Jason Inouye and third baseman James King caught a runner trying to steal, while Carson Szeder and Louie DeGroot added web gems.

Winning pitcher Bryce Barker’s 3 2/3 strong innings limited the Rangers to three runs. He struck out seven.

Cole Robben singled, doubled, scored and had an RBI for the Rangers. Jaiden Temple (2-for-3) scored twice and Nikhil Chander was 2-for-2. Zack DeWit and Liam Kinney singled and Riley Yamagishi Kobayashi scored.

Tigers 11, Blue Jays 7 — An inside-the-park home run highlighted Max Scheiber’s 3-for-3 performance as the Tigers jumped on top 10-2 after two frames.

But the Jays battled back: Jack Jessen’s 4-for-4 and Matt Henkel’s 3-for-4 sparking an 11-hit effort.

However, Nate Fechner’s double and single and Hawker Hechtl’s triple kept the Blue Jays at arm’s length.

Hecht, Drew Anderson and Will Ackerman turned in a double play for the Tigers, while Scheiber flashed the leather at shortstop. Joe McIntyre, Ackerman and Anderson pitched well.

The Blue Jays received solid pitching from Tristan Wollrich: three innings, one run, four K’s.

Giants 10, Angels 7 — Angels Kurt Fischer, Jason Inouye and Bryce Barker (two) drove in runs, but the Giants’ four-run third-inning won the game.

Ben Kinimoto, Brandon Rogers, Andres Shweky, Josiah Roa and Fischer scored for the Halos. Inouye and Barker picked off a runner.

Diamondbacks 9, Rangers 6 — Joey Traverso had a double and stole home to close the gap for the Rangers, but the D-Backs’ five-run third was the difference.

Zack DeWit drove in a run, Cole Robben hit safely, Riley Yamagishi Kobayashi singled and Jaiden Temple doubled to help the Ranger offense.

Zach Letcher was nails behind the plate, Ryan Sylvia was fleet on the base paths and Braiden Ingram made a terrific fielding play for the Rangers.

Astros 5, Yankees 4 — In a nail-biter, Joe Ariola smacked a walk-off double.

Neil Smith scored twice after two hits, also swiping four bases.

Jake Bell turned in a sweet play at second and Keaton Carpenter whiffed six in 2 2/3 innings on the mound.

Brewers 14, Padres 0 — Tate Cutler threw three shutout innings, along the way fanning five. Grant Wallace and Elias Currier came on in relief to preserve the whitewash.

Currier collected three hits, Cutler went 2-for-3 with a triple and two RBIs and Grant Wallace added a first-inning double. Deuces were wild for Eli Yasui: two steals, two runs scored, two hits and two RBIs.

Cameron Nelson (2-for-2) and Clark Chen also contributed to the offense.

(The Padres did not submit a recap)

Marlins 10, Diamondbacks 9 — A crazy ninth inning saw the D-Backs score five times to take a 9-6 lead — until the Fish rallied with four of their own, highlighted by Tanner Snow’s game-ending single to score Asher Reising.

Carlos Tangren and Carlos Campos were 2-for-2 and Eli Grote had two RBIs for the winners.

William Dunne and Trajan Clark started the wild Marlins’ comeback with fifth-inning walks. It was Reising’s double that tied things at 9-9.

Snow (eight strikeouts) and Ansel Tucker (two) shared pitching duties.
