Torrance All-Stars Still Eliminated From the Little League World Championship
The All-Star Little League team from Torrance is likely still feeling some heartache this morning after they were eliminated from the World Series yesterday in Williamsport, Pennsylvania.
The team lost 4 to 2 to Hamilton, Ohio.
The local players became the first L.A. County team in nearly 30 years to earn a trip to Williamsport, Penn., where the league’s World Series is held, when they beat the team from Petaluma, Calif. earlier this month.
They went on to beat the team from Hooksett, New Hampshire 10-4, and score another win against the team from Hamilton, Ohio 9-0.
During Wednesday’s game against Sioux Falls, the South Dakota pitcher Gavin Weir threw out 83 pitches to beat Torrance 1-0. It was Weir's fourth no-hitter of the summer.
