Little League Update - Westport Wins Slugfest

Westport, Connecticut overcame a 10 run inning from Sammamish, Washington to win 14-13.  Chad Knight ripped a two out walk off single in the first extra inning to begin the celebration. 

Westport rallied for seven runs in the bottom of the fifth to tie the game 13-13.  Three of the five homeruns Westport hit were slugged in the fifth inning.  Alex Reiner started the homer barrage with a 3-run blast, Max Popken followed with a 2-run bomb and Chad Knight triggered a solo shot to tie the game.

Tatin Llamas and Ricky Offenburg also hit homeruns for Westport.  Westport will now play Chula Vista for the United States championship.  Chula Vista won the Little League World Series in 2009.
