Not sure about how stout this North Carolina's team is......at least Lufkin is 2-0 so far. I just hafta think the Texas boys will be able to hit against that good pitching. On the other side of the coin, Texas will have it's best pitcher on the mound to start this one also. Lufkin has several "power pitchers" in its lineup too......and then a couple of other very capable ones if they need them. The winner of this

game will be in the American Championship game with no losses. It's only double elimination until the championship game in each division. Mid-Atlantic New Jersey team will now face Connecticut in an elimination game on Tues. Both of those teams can hit, but one will be eliminated. My guess is Mid-Atlantic New Jersey advances in losers bracket to play loser of Texas-North Carolina. Winner of that game wins losers bracket and advances to American Division Championship game. Looks like Lufkin has as good a chance to win it all as any of these teams......really a better shot except for North Carolina......they have an equal chance. I'll take the Lufkin team......I just have a feeling they are gonna show up when it counts.

 

If you were watching......they did beat a very very good San Antonio McAllister Park team in the regional finals in Waco to get to this point. I think either one of the Texas teams would be highly competitive in this year's LLWS. In my mind, that win against SA was a premier win by this team.

In the International Division, Canada looks strong this year. But don't hiccup on Mexico......they beat a very good S. Korea team tonite 1-0. Pitchers on both teams pitched a 1-hitter. Mexico does have one loss.......Canada is 2-0.......a serious advantage. Japan is also 2-0 after beating Australia and then S. Korea. It will be Canada vs Japan in the winners bracket, and Mexico vs. Venezuela in the losers bracket. Again, the loser of the winners bracket game will play the winner of the losers bracket game to determine the winner of the losers bracket that will face the winner of the winners bracket........got that??? Japan vs Canada should be very interesting......Mexico also strong in losers bracket, IMO. American Division has not won LLWS title since 2011. Looking good for the American Division this year.......I'ma hopin', haha.

The NC pitching is incredible. Watching game in top of 5th. Kid is throwing 80mph breaking balls. Still 1-1 . Lufkin bats are going to have to move back in the box, that NC speed is getting them behind.

Kid from Lufkin just pitched a great game and his ball was just as fast as the NC pitcher!

Game over NC wins. Lufkin played a great game just made a couple errors that last inning that cost them the game. They will now be in the losers bracket and play Connecticut @ 6:30 tomorrow night for a chance to advance to the championship and play North Carolina again!

When it gets to this part of the tournament, the ump behind the plate should require the pitchers to throw it over the plate to get a called strike, IMO. I understand why they do it in earlier games......that's how Little League is called to help the game move along without a bunch of walks.......and to induce the hitters to swing at anything close. But that is no longer a valid reason to hang on to that policy at this stage.

I saw a couple of looks from the batters after a few of those shoulder level strikes ... the kids didn't say a word though ....

No such thing as a batter having a good eye here ... if it's not in the dirt or over your head you better be swinging ....

Good luck to Lufkin. Game is fixing to start right now. If they win they will advance to play Japan in the championship game! Win or lose I'm proud of the way these young men have represented not only the state of Texas but BEAST TEXAS!!!
