Hamilton falls in Little League game 2

WILLIAMSPORT, PA (FOX19) - The Hamilton West Side Little League All-Stars have fallen to the Southeast team from Columbus, Georgia by a 6-0 score.  This was their second game in the Little League World Series. 

Hamilton reached first base with their first hitter in the first inning, but it was not a sign of things to come.  Blistering Georgia pitching combined with a strong hitting helped the Southeast squad to an early 3-0 lead.

Pitches as high as 71 miles and hour (which ESPN equates to 91 for a major leaguer) held the West-Siders scoreless for the game, while Georgia added another 3 runs for insurance.

Hamilton's next game is at 4. p.m. Wednesday.

The team has been playing with loads of support from home.  Up and down Main Street, the main drag of Hamilton's west side, there are signs supporting the team.
Rags to Richards T-Shirts owner Richard Lindy says they have already sold out their stock of team apparel. Walt's barbecue, which held fundraisers for the team, is full of people watching the action.

Hamilton Mayor Pat Moeller says whether the team wins or loses, it's already a win for the city.

The All-Stars, representing the Great Lakes region, easily beat Tom's River NJ 16-6 in their first game. Today's game against Columbus Georgia was originally scheduled for Monday but was delayed and then postponed due to rain.
