Missouri beats Canada 18-6 in LLWS consolation game
SOUTH WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. (AP) Devrin Weathers pitched into the fifth inning and hit a two-run homer on Tuesday, leading Webb City, Missouri to an 18-6 victory over Canada in a consolation game at the Little League World Series.
Webb City completed its first victory with a nine-run sixth inning. Cole Gayman had a two-run double, and Jaystin Smith hit a two-run homer.
Weathers gave up four runs and three hits in 4 1/3 innings, striking out six.
Webb City went ahead to stay with five runs in the third on only two hits - Cale McCallister's RBI single and Gayman's run-scoring double. Webb City took advantage of an error, three walks and five wild pitches.
Webb City showed a little defense, too, pulling off a slick double play in the second inning. Second baseman Mekhi Garrard had a nice pivot to complete the play.
