Trevor Windisch slammed two home runs and Braydon Salzman came one batter short of pitching a perfect game as Huntington Beach Ocean View Little League remained undefeated with a victory over Rio Rico Little League in a brisk 45-minute, four-inning affair.
Hagen Danner and Windisch got things started early for So Cal (3-0), slamming solo home runs to lead off the game. So Cal ended up with four runs in the first inning and six in the second, capped off by a two-run Windisch homer that scored Ryo Takada. Salzman retired the first 11 batters, striking out four, before giving up a single to Sean Fanning with two outs in the fourth inning.
So Cal completes pool play tomorrow, as it plays Nevada at 7:30 p.m. tomorrow. Arizona (1-3) is done with pool play and likely done with the tournament, as it would need two Northern California losses plus help to advance to the semifinals.
