Encinitas Little League team wins first of two games

Posted: Updated:
ENCINITAS (CNS) - The Encinitas Little League all-star team used an 11-run sixth inning to power past St. George, Utah, 15-2 in the first of two games they will play Monday in the West Regional tournament in San Bernardino.

The day-night doubleheader was the result of a thunderstorm that forced postponement of its Sunday game.

Encinitas received a strong pitching performance in the morning contest from Shane Telfer, who struck out six batters in 5 1/3 innings. After losing to Honolulu Saturday, Encinitas now has a 1-1 record in the regional.

The nightcap will be at 7 p.m. against an all-star team from the Pacifica Little League, the Northern California champion, which had been scheduled for Sunday.

Pacifica is also 1-1 after losing to Honolulu, 10-5, Friday, and defeating the all-star team from the Chandler National Little League, the Arizona state champion, 7-3, Saturday.

Encinitas, the Southern California champion, is 14-3 in four tournaments.

A watch party will be held at Oggi's Pizza and Brewing on Encinitas Boulevard for the 7 p.m. game.

All pool play games will be televised by the ESPN3 broadband network. The tournament is played at Al Houghton Stadium in San Bernardino.

All six teams in the regional will play four pool play games. The top four teams will advance to the semifinals, which will be played Friday. The semifinal winners will play in the regional final Saturday.

The tournament winner will advance to the Little League World Series, which is played in South Williamsport, Pennsylvania. Ten teams from San Diego County have played in the Little League World Series, including the U.S. champion Eastlake Little League all-star team from Chula Vista last year and the 2009 world champions from Chula Vista's Park View Little League.

This is the first time a team from the Encinitas Little League, which was formed in 1957, has advanced to the West Regional, according to league officials.
