Little League Baseball: Big first inning lifts Montoursville past Upper Dauphin


Montoursville continued to pound the ball to all fields after the first inning, making that ping sound of an aluminum bat over and over again to earn a trip to Mansfield for the state tournament.

"We're happy (about going to states)," Wood said. "I feel like the kids deserve it. Coach Ranck has preached a team-first concept and I think they've all bought into it."

Three runs in the second inning pushed the Montoursville lead to 15-2, as Cole Ranck joined the home run parade with a two-run shot out of the nine hole. A pair of two-RBI singles by Ott and Wood in the third gave Montoursville 20 runs for the game.
