Lubbock Western Remains Unbeaten at World Series Beats Arizona 5-1

Source: ESPN Source: ESPN

Brandon Arredondo hit two long homers and Zane Ancell dominated on the mound to lead undefeated Lubbock, Texas, to a 5-1 win over Chandler, Ariz., at the Little League World Series on Sunday.

Arredondo's prodigious blasts easily cleared the 225-foot fences, sailing past TV towers on to a grass field and sending kids scurrying for a new souvenir.

Ancell's two-run homer to center in the third went nearly as far, though his pitching performance might have been even more impressive for Lubbock (2-0), which stands a good chance of moving on to the next round of the series.

The lefty struck out 11 and held Chandler (1-1) to just a weak infield single until pinch-hitter Boston Whitlow lined a double up the middle in the fifth.

Ancell shut down an Arizona lineup that had recorded 17 hits - 10 for extra bases - in its first game.

Ancell left the mound with one out in the sixth after passing the 85-pitch limit - a new rule this year in Little League. Reliever Tyler Thorne allowed two hits and was replaced by Taylor Bridges, who then stuck out Chandler's two batters to strand runners on second and third.

Lubbock Western is now 20-0 and has outscored opponents..337-13.

Monday is an off day for Lubbock Western. Tuesday, Western faces Maryland at 3 p.m. on ESPN 2. And their U.S. Semifinal opponents for Wednesday & Thursday are still to be determined.
