Lexington’s Eastern Little League All-Stars had to win today to stay alive in the Great Lakes Regional, and win they did, thanks to Joey Howard’s crucial grand slam in the top of the sixth inning.
With a 10-5 win over Wisconsin, Eastern got a bit of revenge for their home state, and will play the winner of Indiana and Michigan on Thursday. To advance to the Little League World Series, they’ll have to win out.
Congrats, boys. You got this.
