Win and play in a championship game. Lose and go home. Things are about to get very dramatic at the Little League World Series.
Here’s the schedule for Thursday’s slate of games:
Game 25: Venezuala vs. Mexico, 4 p.m. on ESPN
Game 26: Texas vs. California, 8 p.m. on ESPN
On the international side of things, Venezuela is fresh off a bit of baseball heartbreak after being just one out from a victory on Wednesday. Japan engineered a late-game comeback though and forced Venezuela to take the long way ’round to a spot in Saturday’s international championship game. Mexico, meanwhile has been dominant at the plate with 25 runs in its last two games.
In the nightcap, it’s a rematch of earlier rounds, which saw Texas defeat California on Sunday. Still, California’s offense is a constant threat as the squad has scored at least 10 runs in three of its four games and averaged 9.8 runs in this tournament.
