Rain can't stop Little League Championships

BATTERS ignored rain delays to deliver some big scores at the Australian Little League Championships played at Lismore's Albert Park at the weekend.

Perth teams continue to dominate the competition with Daniel Stephenson blasting two home runs as Perth Metro North downed the Yarra Rangers 15-2.

Perth Metro North then added to their win streak with a 16-2 belting of Brisbane North.

Perth Metro Central also racked up a win, beating Sydney side Ryde South 16-2.

Perth Metro East also claimed victory, downing Adelaide West 5-2 despite pitcher Connor McLeod striking out 12 batters.

Joseph Lamm was another pitcher to impress, striking out 14 batters in 5.1 innings as West Coast beat Southern Mariners 9-0.

Competition continues today with finals tomorrow.

The winning team will represent Australia at the Little League World Series in the US in August.
