Little League World Series: Hays powers Torrance past Ohio



WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. — Torrance Little League’s Grant Hays lived up to the reputation of eating fastballs for breakfast as he broke the early game open with a towering three-run home run in the third inning.

Hays followed that up with a similar shot to left field in the top of the sixth to drive two more runs home. Hays led the offense with two home runs to help Torrance move on with a 9-0 win over Ohio.

Torrance pitcher Xavier Navarro did the rest to hold Ohio down and push Torrance Little League, the first team from Los Angeles County to reach the series since 1994, through to the third round.

Navarro was outstanding, retiring 13 consecutive batters at one point to help lead Torrance to the win.
