The Manhattan Beach Senior Little League All Star team for 2014 is in the Western Regional finals.
At 3-0 in regional competition, the team, which represents Southern California, plays a 3-0 Northern California team from Corning Little League today (Sunday at 6 p.m. in Ontario) to determine which team will be the #1 and #2 seed from Pool B.
In their last game Friday, the team posted a 12-0 win, their winning ways causing the legaue's "mercy" rule to be enacted after 5 innings of play for the third game in a row. The team previously beat Montana 23-0 and Oregon 11-1.
Regardless of the outcome of tonight's game, the boys will be seeded #1 or #2, making their way into the final four teams, with a must-win game on Monday in the single elimination play.
On Friday, three pitchers joined forces to throw a no-hitter in a 12-0 victory in five innings over Nevada on Friday at Ontario Fields of Dreams.
Nichols was in control on the mound. Nichols held Nevada hitless over two innings, allowed no earned runs, walked one and struck out two.
