A Blowout to Begin


The youngsters from Citrus Park opened up the 2008 Little League World Series in grand fashion this afternoon, as they clobbered the Midwest representative Rapid City, South Dakota 10 – 0 in a “10 run rule” shortened game in four innings. The runs came early and often in an 8 run 1st inning as the Southeast reps sent 12 boys to the plate. They tacked on 2 more runs in the second. The combined pitching efforts of Levi Gilcrease, Darren Miller, and Kevin Merrell combined for a four inning no hitter. The offensive outburst, dependable defense, and stellar pitching has perhaps placed a target on the boys from Tampa as the team to beat. Good job and good luck! CPLL continues Pool B play against Hawaii on Sunday night at 8 pm. Make sure you watch, heapsters!
