Mill Creek ousted in semifinals of LL softball regionals

The all-stars representing Washington fall to Hawaii 4-0.

SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. — The Mill Creek Little League major-division softball team representing Washington was eliminated from the West Region tournament Thursday following a 4-0 loss to Hawaii at Houghton Stadium.

Mill Creek was held to one hit — a fourth-inning single by Leneyah Mitchell — by Hawaii pitcher Jennalyn Sniffen, who did not walk a batter and struck out seven in the shutout.

Hawaii scored once in the first inning and tacked on three more in the third against Mill Creek pitcher Yanina Sherwood, who allowed four runs (three earned) on four hits. She struck out 11 with no walks.

It was the second win for Hawaii over Mill Creek in the tournament, as Sniffen also handcuffed Mill Creek’s bats in a 3-0 win on Tuesday.

Hawaii will play Northern California for the regional title and a berth in the Little League Softball World Series at 10 a.m. on Friday.
