  • Sox silence Yanks in classic...

    Colin Pedro of the Red Sox and Brandon Trujillo of the Yankees combined for nearly two dozen strikeouts Saturday night in the defensive gem that was the Las Vegas Little League majors baseball championship at Keyes Park.

    Both pitchers were superb on this evening, demonstrating good command and mowing down batter after batter in the late innings.

    But it was Pedro and his top-seeded Red Sox who prevailed, taking a 3-0 win and adding a title to manager Rick Armijo’s collection.

    Friday’s championship game between the Lady Devils and Stars — the top two Las Vegas Little League softball teams of the year — was close for a while.

    Then came the second inning, and it was all Lady Devils.

    Manager Angela Pino’s crew punctuated a perfect season in LVLL play with an 11-0 romp in the title game. They did it using the same formula that has worked all season — a combination of stingy pitching, getting on base and making defenses pay with wily baserunning.
