The 2013 Little League World Series live stream and televised games schedule continues with five matchups on Monday, Aug. 19. Among the teams in action will be Australia, Canada, the Asia-Pacific, Mid-Atlantic and Caribbean teams. Also, the U.S. teams from the Northwest and Midwest will face off. Games will be seen on TV and LLWS live stream thanks to the ESPN sports network.
According to an Aug. 19 report via MyNorthwest.com, one of the teams in competition today will be Sammamish, Wash. The team is one of eight who will be playing in Monday's elimination games. Sammamish is coming off a valiant comeback effort against Westport, Conn. in their previous contest. The team was on the losing side in a 9-7 final, after being down as much as 9 to 1 at one point in the game. Assistant coach Matt Fitzgibbons commented on his squad's efforts saying:
"We'll bounce back. We'll be fine. They're a pretty tough little team, and we've been in this situation before. We lost at state in the first round and bounced back the next day. We'll be alright. They'll be fine."
In Monday's games, Sammamish is last up on the schedule for LLWS elimination games. They'll take on the Iowa state champs in a game scheduled for the final contest of the Monday slate, with the winner continuing on, and the losing team going home.
