WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. (WPRI) — The Warwick North Little League team lost their first World Series game on Thursday.
Ryan Harlost, the starting pitcher for New York, was dominant – both on the mound and at the plate. He hit a three-run homer in the first inning to put New York on the board – and from there Warwick had a lot of catching up to do. After a rain delay and two quick runs in the sixth inning, Warwick fell 7-2.
They will play the loser of the Northwest & Southeast on Saturday.
