LLBB: Copper Hills stays alive

Posted: Updated:
TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) - Copper Hills scored seven runs in the 5th inning to beat Pantano 10-3 in an Elimination game of the Arizona District 12 Little League Baseball tournament.

Cristian Gonzalez's bases loaded single to score catcher Zach Rojahn broke a 3-3 stalemate with no outs in the 5th. Brandon Terrell followed that with a single and the flood gates were open on a night when a stead rain fell consistently over Field #2 at Freedom Park.

Copper Hills winning pitcher Alex Hernandez provided a key moment in the game when he escaped a bases loaded jam in the 3rd. Hernandez got a strike out and pop up to strand three Pantano bases runners.

Copper Hills plays again in an Elimination game on Tuesday night at 5:30 p.m.
