Little League World Series 2012: Japan, Tennessee move on
Twelve-year-old reliever James Gonzalez got a strikeout to end a bases-loaded jam the next inning before Panama. He allowed a run and two hits in three innings, benefiting from some nifty glove work like 13-year-old shortstop Daniel Cruz’s diving stop to his right and Edisson Gonzalez’s sweep tag at first to end the bottom of the fourth.
Panama pitchers were often serenaded to chants of “Strike him out” in Spanish by their fans, who were yelling the phrase when Oshima tripled down the left-field line to tack on an insurance run in the bottom of the fifth.
The late game also featured a Little League first when a ball down the right-field line initially ruled foul was overturned to fair on a replay review. The umpire’s discretion put the runner at first.
This is the first tournament in which replay reviews are allowed for calls down outfield lines.
