Bowling Green East wins Great Lakes Regional
After nearly two days and hundreds of miles, Bowling Green (Ky.) Eastern Little League finally managed to defend its region title, and punch its return ticket to Williamsport. Rain suspended the Great Lakes Championship Game between the Kentucky and Michigan State champions that began Saturday morning at the Reuben Glick Center in Indianapolis. Scoreless after one inning when skies opened, the game was halted and re-scheduled for Sunday morning. Mother Nature continued to have her way, prompting Little League International to re-locate the game to Howard J. Lamade Stadium in South Williamsport, Pa. After more than 10 hours on a bus, the two teams returned to action on Monday in front of families, friends, and league officials who made the trip to central Pennsylvania. Those in attendance saw John Guthrie wrap two extra-base hits, in sparking Bowling Green Eastern Little League (BGELL) to a 7-2 victory over Essexville-Hampton Little League (EHLL). With the victory, BGELL again earned to right to represent the Great Lakes Region in the Little League Baseball® World Series. The game marked the first time that a Region Championship had ever been re-located to the home of Little League Baseball. Isaiah Head shut down Essexville-Hampton Little League during his time on the mound. The Michigan state champs managed just one hit off of Head, who allowed one earned run, walked three, and struck out 10 during his 5 2/3 innings of work. Bowling Green Eastern Little League was sparked by Carson Myers and Guthrie, who teamed up for three hits and two runs batted in. Alex Czyzewski was tagged as the losing pitcher for Essexville-Hampton Little League. Going 2 1/3 innings, he did not allow a walk, while striking out three, and surrendering four runs.

Bowling Green Eastern Little League increased its lead with three runs in the third inning and tacked on two more runs in the top of the fourth for a 7-0 lead. A passed ball scored Tate Hanks to start the scoring in the fourth. That was followed up by Kyle Snyder's single, plating Jackson Moore. Essexville-Hampton Little League scored one run in the bottom of the frame to cut its deficit to five. An error gave EHLL life. Finally, Head closed the door with an inning-ending strike out of Mike Mulders. One run in the bottom of the sixth inning helped Essexville-Hampton Little League close its deficit to 7-2, and set the final score. A bases loaded walk sparked Essexville Hampton LL's rally, but, Devin Obee struck out Cade Coquillard to end the game.
