Early Games to Watch
South Nashville LL (Tenn.) vs. Westport LL (Conn.): Thurs., Aug. 15, 7 p.m. (ET), ESPN2
Goodlettsville, Tenn., is representing the Southeast region again in 2013 after making it to the LLWS championship just one year ago and they look ready to take care of some unfinished business. The Southeast champ, which ultimately represented the U.S. against Japan in the championship, wound up losing, 12-2, in the decisive game.
The boys from Westport, Conn., are representing New England and will stand in the way of the Southeast and an easy walk into the winner's bracket.
If Connecticut was to make an improbable run to the championship, it would be the first team from that state to win it all since 1989 when Trumbull, Conn., took the World Series title behind a five-hit pitching performance from eventual NHL standout Chris Drury (via LittleLeague.org).
Big bats are all over the place in each of these lineups. It wouldn't be surprising to see this one turn into a barnburner.
Newark National LL (Del.) vs. Urbandale LL (Iowa): Fri., Aug. 16, 8 p.m. (ET), ESPN
The Mid-Atlantic region was won by Newark, Del., in stunning and surprising fashion. The squad hopes to continue that run into its opener against the Midwest champs from Urbandale, Iowa.
Newark became just the second team from Delaware to ever make it to Williamsport by way of a blistering offense that scored 38 runs in just four games, according to the Little League's official website.
However, their pitching was what got them past top-seeded Lionville, Penn., in a convincing 8-2 win to clinch a berth at Williamsport.
Urbandale has have shown grit and toughness in battling through plenty of close games in its regional qualifying.
