SOUTH WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. (AP) — Layne Roblyer hit his second home run of the tournament, helping Pearland, Texas, to an 11-4 victory over Lynnwood, Washington, on Monday in the Little League World Series.

Roblyer, who homered against Philadelphia on Sunday, had a three-run shot in the third inning against Lynnwood, which was eliminated.

Pearland (2-1) scored early, getting a run in the first inning followed by Roblyer’s shot to the lawn seats in right field. Christian Terranova scored on a passed ball in the fourth inning.

Pearland led 5-0 before Lynnwood (1-2) got on the scoreboard with three runs in the bottom of the fifth.

Two doubles and a single from the Northwest regional champions made the deficit reasonable, but Pearland scored five runs on two wild pitches, a passed ball and a single in the sixth to seal the win.

Pearland will play the winner of Chicago and Cumberland, Rhode Island, on Tuesday night.
