Pennsylvania And Japan Locked In Crazy Home Run Derby In LLWS Title Game
That team from Lewisberry, Pennsylvania is playing Japan in the overall championship game at the Little League World Series (PA beat Texas to get there), and clearly both teams have run out of pitching. Pennsylvania and Japan are tied 10-10 in the top of the third. Yep.
There have been five homers, 15 hits and 20 runs -- Japan hit three homers in one inning.
UPDATE 7: Japan wins, 18-11.
UPDATE 6: 18-11 Japan on run-scoring single.
UPDATE: 5: 17-11 Japan on infield throwing error.
UPDATE 4: 16-11, top of sixth. Last two runs scored on wild pitches.
UPDATE 3: 14-11 Japan, top of sixth.
UPDATE 2: 13-11, bottom third.
UPDATE 1: Japan home run in the third gives it a 13-10 lead, and ties the record for most combined runs in a championship game.
But my favorite moment so far is this:

Man, just wait until these two starters reach the pitch count. These teams could score 50 runs.
Another note: I know it's tradition in Japan for the crowd to cheer during the entire inning that their team is at bat, but this is Pennsylvania and it's annoying. So: MUTE.
