MBLL player Jared Karros starts on the mound in Manhattan Beach's victory over the Sandpoint, Idaho team.
The game, held in Vancouver, Washington, was ended after 5 innings due to the mercy rule.
Now the Manhattan Beach team, in the Junior division featuring 13- and 14-year olds from Manhattan Beach and Hermosa Beach, has a shot at making it to the Little League World Series. The team will need to win one more regular pool play contest and a semi-finals matchup. The overall West Regional Tournament winner will advance to the 2015 Junior League World Series.
"Jared Karros gave us a great start on the mound and our boys took a terrific approach at the plate," said MBLL Manager Keith Ramsey after Sunday's game. "We got quality relief efforts from Matt Devico and Cooper Sutherland as well. Dylan Dennis had 4 RBIs and Cooper also had two hits and an RBI."
The Manhattan Beach team will play a team from Beaverton, Oregon, on Monday at 1 p.m.
