Tennessee Team Wins US Little League Championship!
Yesterday, the Goodlettesville TN team (a suburb of Nashville) beat the Petaluma CA and won the US Championship in the Little League World Series. The first such title ever for a Tennessee team.
There are only 6 innings in the Little League games and everyone thought that it was a slam dunk when Tennessee was ahead 15 to 5 in the bottom of the 6th.
The California team was able to score a record 10 runs and tie the game.
Tennessee, not to be beat, scored 9 more runs in the top of the 7th.
California fought a brave fight, but the final score was 24-16. It was incredible watching these 11 and 12 year olds playing like adults!
One star in the game was Lorenzo Butler who scored 3 3 run home runs. Yes 9 runs, just Lorenzo.
Today at 2pm Central, Tennessee will play Japan for the World Championship.
