  • Lady Devils do it again

    The Stars never could crack the code offensively against Lady Devil pitcher Samantha Montaño and her teammates on Friday evening in the Las Vegas Little League softball championship game.

    The Lady Devils had no such problems, building a 10-0 lead early and ending up with a 15-0 shutout to repeat as champions.

    Alycia Hernandez scored three runs to lead the Lady Devils; she went 1 for 1 with one run batted in, drawing walks in her other two plate appearances.

    The top-seeded Red Sox won 9-4, advancing to Saturday morning’s championship game. They’ll play the winner of a Friday evening semifinal between the Cardinals and Yankees.

    Richard Armijo, D.J. Abreu and Jeremy Fernandez scored in each of the first two innings Wednesday to lead the Sox to a 9-0 advantage.
