Mill Creek falls to Hawaii at LL softball regionals

The representatives from Washington will need to win Wednesday to stay alive.

SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. — The Mill Creek Little League major-division softball team lost 3-0 to Hawaii in the West Region tournament Tuesday, putting it one loss away from elimination.

Hawaii scored twice in the first inning on an error and a passed ball, respectively, and added another run in the third on a sacrifice fly.

Leneyah Mitchell doubled, and Yanina Sherwood and Gabrielle Raysbrook singled for Washington’s three hits. Hawaii won despite managing just four hits off Sherwood, who struck out seven in six innings. She walked three, and two of Hawaii’s three runs were earned.

Jennalyn Sniffen struck out nine batters and walked two in six shutout frames for Hawaii, but allowed Sherwood to come to the plate representing the tying run in Washington’s final at-bat.

Mitchell led off the sixth with a double, and Kendall Westman reached when she was hit by a pitch. Sherwood lined into a 9-6 double play to stunt the rally.

Sniffen got a strikeout to end the game.

Washington will play Southern California in an elimination game Wednesday at Houghton Stadium, with first pitch scheduled for 7 p.m.

Washington defeated Southern California 3-1 on Sunday.
