Little League World Series run comes to an end for Pearland East All-Stars


WACO – A devastating loss in Waco puts an end to an incredible season for the Pearland East All-Stars.

After a 4-2 loss to Arkansas on Thursday, Pearland Friday's game was a must-win against Louisiana.

Things started strong for Pearland with three straight singles to open the game, but that was followed by three straight strikeouts, leaving the bases loaded to end the top of the first inning.

Things took a major turn for the worse in the bottom of the inning after four runs from Louisiana.

Then the bottom fell out after a run in the second and two more in the fourth to put Pearland behind 7-0.

One last blow came in the fifth, with a Louisiana homer to push the deficit to eight runs.

Pearland would score their only run in the sixth for a 8-1 final as Pearland ends their Little League World Series run in Waco.
