Breakdown: #WRALL vs. Virginia SE Little League Semi-Finals

Breakdown: #WRALL vs. Virginia SE Little League Semi-Finals

And then there were four: Tennessee, North Carolina, Virginia and the Georgia team from Warner Robins. (Well, or three because Tennessee beat North Carolina earlier on Wednesday.)

In the big semi-final match-up between Georgia and Virginia, the local boys face a bit of an uphill challenge.

Over the first three games of pool play in the Southeastern Little League tournament, the Great Falls-Virginia team has hit and pitched better than WRALL-Georgia. 

As a team, Virginia has hit .333 with five home runs and 22 runs batted in, showing their patience at the plate with more walks (16) than strikeouts (11). 

Perhaps more impressively, their pitchers have dominated opposing batters to the tune of a 0.86 earned run average with only five walks and 19 strikeouts in 14 innings.
