Traverso’s big day paces DLL Rangers in AAA thriller

From page B2 | May 27, 2014 |

Joey Traverso homered in the fifth inning to bring the Rangers within a run — then singled home Riley Yamagishi Kobayashi with the winning tally in a 13-12 playoff classic with the Tigers.

In the Davis Little League AAA battle, the lead changed hands six times.

Traverso, Nikhil Chander and Zach DeWit turned in solid fielding plays and Ryan Sylvia contributed to the offense.

For the Tigers, Joe McIntyre’s two-run double helped jump-start his team. Max Scheiber later tripled and Brian Chin doubled twice and drove home three teammates.

Here’s a look at more AAA American League playoff action …

Astros 4, Yankees 2 — Joe Ariola hurled four strong innings and Keaton Carpenter closed out the last two for the save.

Nicholas Golberg swiped home twice and Ariola’s single brought in an insurance run.

Collin Carpenter had an unassisted doubled play.

Adam Ferguson’s second hit of the game — a double to left — plated the Yankee runs in the fourth.

Ben Riely, Colin Walsh and Keoni Chaidez each had hits.

Matthew Njoku’s relief pitching was sterling.

Angels 11, Rangers 5 — Jason Inouye, Bryce Barker and Ethan Trinidad combined to limit the Rangers to two hits, while Carson Szeder paced the winners with two doubles, a run and three runs batted in.

Inouye scored three times and Kurt Fischer and Ben Kunimoto both had RBIs.

Brandon Damian, in addition to his web gem, scored a run.

For the Tigers, Joe McIntyre doubled and singled and Max Scheiber, Tony Segal and Aidan Cohan each had two singles.

Brian Chin (triple) and Colin Grows (game-tying RBI hit) also chipped in.

Scheiber’s three-up, three-down fifth kept things close.

National League playoff activity included …

Marlins 10, Cubs 0 — Tanner Snow pitched five innings, allowed just one hit with 10 strikeouts and the Marlins’ Asher Reising went 3-for-3 with two singles and a triple. Reising also scored twice.

Snow added two doubles and two RBIs to the winning cause.

Ansel Tucker scored two runs and Zach Forbes went 2-for-2 and scored after stealing two bases. Carlos Campos, William Dunner and Trajan Clark each scored in the five-run second.

Diamondbacks 16, Padres 1 — With the winners scoring in every inning, Walsh Klineberg’s three-run homer brought home Cole Knutson and Liam Gatewood in the power display.
