Charlie Streeb’s bases-loaded double scored the deciding two runs in the last inning as the Davis Little League AAA Dodgers beat the Diamondbacks in the Saturday heat, 9-7.
Eli Vikstrom — who went 2-for-2 with two RBIs — scored the game-winner and Brandon Folb was 2-for-2, also with two runs batted in. Hank Doreo scored and had an RBI to go with his single and Kazu Ikemoto scored twice.
Wining pitcher Streeb combined with Nick Haverlock and Liam Sheehan to strike out 12 D-Backs.
Thomas Fong’s double and hits by Eric Chung, Niko Dwyer, Conner Dinnell and Antonio Martin paced the Diamondbacks.

Giants 16, Reds 11 — Ben Skinner’s two doubles, two RBIs and two runs scored kept the Giants’ lineup turning over as Ansel Tuckets, Nico Cooper, Emery Lee and Ethan Quinn reached base in every at-bat, scoring twice apiece.
Saul Israel and Tanner Snow pitched effectively and Skinner turned in a web gem in center field.
Reds’ slugger Connor Malone had two singles and an RBI, Josh Davis and Colin Carter added two hits and Mike Flood drove in a run.
Alex Peixoto, Max Spatz, Keiffer Jones, James Benson and Flood pitched.
Yankees 10, Tigers 3 — Brady Nelson and Owen Lingbloom shut down the Tigers from the mound and a handful of Yankees contributed key hits in the victory.

Defense — including spectacular catches by Xavier Chambers and Tyler Hudson — was the game’s highlight for the Tigers.
Scoreless innings by Krishan Parbhu and Chambers and a nice mound outing by Avery Turkovich were augmented by Gabe Dirksen’s two-run homer and hits by Zane Bertero, Parbhu and Turkovich.
Cardinals 10, Padres 3 —Doubles by Richard Lee, Zach Forbes and Nolan Bitners and a single by Mitchell Biscardi accounted for the three Padres’ runs.
Biscardi came up from AA to help the Pads, who were down to eight players.
