POSTED: Tuesday, August 25, 2009
SOUTH WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. -- Travis Daves and Wyatt Willis each hit two-run homers to lead San Antonio, Texas past Chula Vista, Calif., 6-3 on Tuesday night at the Little League World Series.
Texas stayed undefeated and will play Staten Island, N.Y., in one U.S. semifinal Wednesday night, while California gets Warner Robins, Ga., in the other semifinal Thursday night.
Daves' homer followed a two-run triple by Drew Brooks to put Texas up 4-2.
California got a run back in the fourth before Willis' shot to straightaway center gave Texas a three-run cushion. The 13-year-old outfielder stomped on third base in delight before getting high-fives from teammates at the plate.
Kiko Garcia's two-run homer in the first had given California a 2-0 lead.
