Latin America 8, Panama 1
The team from Nicaragua is still alive. Panama's time in Williamsport has come to a close.
Led by Luis Garcia's four RBI and lockdown pitching performances from Ronny Artola and Johan Saravia, the representatives from Latin America defeated Panama on Tuesday, 8-1.
Garcia paced the offense with this three-run blast:
Artola threw three innings of one-run, three-hit ball, while Saravia went three perfect innings, striking out six.
A bit of crafty defense was Panama's highlight from an otherwise tough afternoon:
Nicaragua now faces the Caribbean representatives in the bottom half of the international bracket.
Mid-Atlantic 10, Great Lakes 0
The team from Pennsylvania is not playing around in front of its home-state fans.
Mid-Atlantic rolled Great Lakes, 10-0, in a four-inning mercy win. Chase Link hit yet another dinger, while Tyler McGough knocked in three runs and Beau Rabel knocked in two.
Braden Hatch went the distance for Pennsylvania on the mound, giving up just three hits and a walk in four scoreless innings while striking out seven.
Pennsylvania now faces Texas in a matchup in the lower half of the United States bracket, while the team from Great Lakes was eliminated.
Caribbean 4, Canada 2
It got a little shaky for the team representing the Caribbean in the end, but they kept their Little League World Series hopes alive on Tuesday.
Despite giving up two runs to Canada in the top of the sixth, the Caribbean team held on for a 4-2 win, led by an excellent pitching performance from Reangelo Decaster (four innings, one hit, no runs, six strikeouts) and RBI from Joshua Acosta, Kyshore Hinkel, Jaythan Cordilia and Alexander Provacia.
The Curaçao bunch will now face Nicaragua in the lower portion of the international bracket. Canada's tournament is over.
Southwest 4, Midwest 0
Kaiden Shelton hit a moonshot and combined with Jacob Zurek and Corey Kahn to blank the Midwest as the team from Texas stayed alive with a 4-0 victory.
Shelton opened the scoring with an absolute blast to left:
And he combined with Zurek and Kahn to hold Iowa to just two hits—while whiffing nine—in a dominant performance on the mound by the Texas trio.
