LLWS scores for Day 5 (Tuesday) came from five games. The LLWS scores included great LLWS performances from the Washington and New Jersey offenses, but dictated different fates for both cities. New Jersey had the most runs among the LLWS scores on Tuesday, but they were just playing in a consolation game, and this was their last night in Williamsport, Pennsylvania. Washington however, fought back elimination, beating a Connecticut team that had beaten them in the first game of the 2010 Little League World Series. The Washington offense finally came alive, and scored nine runs in the effort.
Then there was Japan, which beat Mexico for the second time, and did so with great pitching and defense. Japan won Pool C over in the International side of things, and now awaits the winner of Pool D to decide the International champion. Washington will now play Texas to decide who advances from Pool B, Latin America (Panama) beat Canada to set up a game against Chinese Tai Pei for the Pool D title, and Georgia awaits the winner of Ohio vs. Hawaii now to decide the Pool A title. The semi-finals are almost ready at the 2010 Little League World Series, and that puts us right on the doorstep of learning which team will go home with the World Series title this year.
