Starkville LL bounces back for win

Starkville Daily News - - SCORECARD -

HAT­TIES­BURG – Fol­low­ing a heart­break­ing loss on Mon­day night to be­gin the Lit­tle League Baseball Mis­sis­sippi state tour­na­ment, the Starkville Lit­tle League Mis­sis­sippi Majors came back with au­thor­ity on Tues­day.

Fac­ing off against Natchez in an elim­i­na­tion game, Starkville blew through for a 30-1 vic­tory to stay alive. The vic­tory came af­ter Starkville was just shy of mak­ing the win­ner's bracket the pre­vi­ous night. Af­ter lead­ing 8-6 against Hat­ties­burg in the fifth, Starkville gave up mul­ti­ple er­rors with two outs on the way to six-straight runs to trail 12-8 head­ing to the sixth. Starkville scored two runs in that frame but left the bases loaded and fell by two runs.

Now that they're back on track, the Majors still have work to do be­fore they can punch their ticket to Waco, Texas and the South­west Re­gion Tour­na­ment. The Majors face Hat­ties­burg again tonight at 6 p.m.

A win tonight puts the Majors in the cham­pi­onship round with Meadville and they must win two games to ad­vance on to Waco. Ma­jor League Baseball
