After finishing runner-up in last year's U.S.-only Little League World Series, West Side Little League from Hamilton, Ohio, was two wins away from returning to Williamsport. A 1-0 loss to Kentucky on Wednesday, however, ended Ohio's quest for LLWS glory.
Kentucky and Indiana will face off to determine the Great Lakes region representative. Massachusetts and Maine face off with the New England region title up for grabs. And Oregon and Washington are one win away from claiming the Northwest region.
The Little League World Series will get underway Wednesday. The Caribbean and Latin America representatives get the international tournament, while New England and the Southeast will get things started on the U.S. side.
