SOUTH WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. — Jordan Cardenas homered and pitched 2 1/3 innings of hitless relief, and San Antonio, Texas, took advantage of defensive miscues to beat Parsippany, N.J., 5-2 on Thursday at the Little League World Series.
Cardenas gave Texas an early lead with his solo shot to right in the bottom of the first.
The Southwest champions added three more runs in the second thanks to two outfield errors. Starting pitcher Tyler Vitt had singled to center in the inning and came around to score on a three-base error.
Playing in a steady rain, New Jersey broke through in the fourth after Anthony Scannelli’s single to make it 4-1. Cardenas relieved Vitt and walked D.J. Pico with the bases loaded to force in another run before retiring seven in a row.
