World Series action begins for MI team tonight

The Little League World Series looks like the place to be starting Thursday. Both of Ross' bombs were solo shots and Clayton Wigley also dialed a long distance solo homer as Lufkin went back-to-back-to-back in the third inning.

Lufkin increased its lead to 5-0 in the third thanks to three home runs, all with two outs.

While Lufkin was hitting the ball deep easily, MI couldn't solve Ditsworth, who tossed a gem on the mound.

Ditsworth surrendered one earned run in six innings.

The lone Great Lakes run came courtesy of a solo home run from Will Pflaum in the top of the 6th inning, but Southwest pitcher Hunter Ditsworth was hard to hit, and stuck out eight in a complete game performance.

After a scoreless first inning, Ross put Lufkin on the board with a blast to center field off MI pitcher Jack Jones.

On the eighth pitch of the at-bat in the bottom of the second inning, Ross sent the ball over the left-field wall to put Lufkin on the board.

Ross followed with another homer to left.

MI advanced to the Little League World Series after a 6-3 win over IL in the Great Lakes Regional Tournament championship game last weekend.

Ditsworth and Ross had two hits and two RBIs each.

Pflaum and Joey Randazzo had the only two hits for MI. Mid-Atlantic will face a New England team on Thursday that hasn't lost all summer.
