SOUTH WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. — Huntington Beach, Calif., pounded out 12 hits, Hagen Danner and Nick Pratto combined on a two-hitter, and the West region champs stayed undefeated in the Little League World Series with a 10-0 victory over La Grange, Ky., on Sunday.
Pratto and Ryo Takeda each knocked in two runs.
California took control in a five-run second after two runs scored on an error, Pratto smacked a two-run double and Danner added an RBI single.
The game ended after four because of Little League's 10-run rule.
California has won both its games in South Williamsport by double digits.
"They put the ball in the gaps and put the ball in play. That's baseball," Kentucky Manager Brad Bates said. "We've done the same thing to the other teams in the regionals. It's baseball."
Jacob Bates and Zach Nicholas had Kentucky's hits. La Grange will play Warner Robins, Ga., in an elimination game at 4 p.m. Monday.
