Little League World Series: Louisiana Won't Compete with Spunky Montana
Billings, Montana has a combination of consistency and resiliency that could carry them all the way to the Championship Game at the Little League World Series. After overcoming a deficit with yet another big rally, Montana has proven to be one of the most dangerous teams in this tournament.
That's nothing against Lafayette, Louisiana. A shutout victory in the LLWS is indicative of just how sound their pitching is. Even so, they are going to need to put up a lot more runs than the two that they hung up in their last outing.
Montana proves time and time again that they are willing to do whatever it takes to put their opponent away. When everything is on the line, they find a way to spark a rally and put their opponent away.
A grand slam helped punch their ticket to Williamsport in the regional final. Whether it's slamming the door shut on an opponent or starting up a late come-from-behind victory, they have the bats in their lineup to score runs in a hurry.
Louisiana is similar in that sense. They had to score eight runs in a remarkable comeback victory. They certainly have resolve as well, they just aren't as consistent at putting up a big score as Montana is.
Montana is one of those teams who made a big statement in their opening game. The first round is a juncture where teams prove they belong or show their vulnerabilities. While Louisiana showcased dominant pitching and defense, Montana's ability to get on base and raw power is going to propel them past Louisiana.
