The 2010 Little League World Series scores will continue to be revealed Wednesday. The 2010 Little League World Series schedule will feature the Texas vs. Washington game on Aug. 25, as two of the best offenses on the United States’ side of the bracket meet to decide how Pool B will turn out. We would say the best offenses in the entire World Series, but the Chinese Tai-Pei team has been laying waste to opponents over in the International bracket, and have scored 41 runs in just two games. That right there is a bit more impressive, and has allowed their pitching to rest with just four-inning games.
Texas has scored 24 runs in its first two games, beating both Fairfield, Conn., and Plymouth, Minnesota, on their way to the Pool B Championship. Washington has now done the same thing, but actually lost their first game to Connecticut back on the first day of the 2010 Little League World Series schedule. Washington eliminated Connecticut on Tuesday night, though, beating them 9-5 in another great offensive outing for the kids from Auburn, Wash.. Now Auburn and Pearland, Texas, face off to decide which team advances to the United States Championship Game.
Texas vs. Washington will be the showcase game on the 2010 LLWS schedule Wednesday. It will hit right during primetime on the East Coast, allowing fans across the country to tune in. The first pitch is scheduled for just after 5 p.m. PST (8 p.m. EST) and will be a live presentation on ESPN. It says a lot when they play the games on ESPN instead of ESPN2, and that could draw even more eyes to the game. If Texas wins on Wednesday night, they win the pool, but if Washington wins, they will force another game against Texas that will take place on Thursday afternoon.
The winner of Pool B will play against the winner of Pool A on Saturday, Aug. 28, for the United States Championship Game this year. That game will be broadcast live on ABC, but the game time hasn’t been released just yet. For both teams, that game seems so very close, but they can’t afford to look past their opponent on Wednesday night. Both teams will have to watch their pitch counts closely, because, with all the pitch count rules in Little League now, it could leave them shorthanded for a Thursday re-match if necessary. Washington’s coaches did a great job of that on Tuesday, but playing their fourth game in six days could compound the problem.
