WACO, Texas – Day one at the Little League Southwest Regional was a tough one for the Starkville 12U All-Stars.
Going up against the Texas East representatives, Starkville couldn’t keep the powerful offense off the scoreboard giving up at least two runs in all four innings. Starkville went to the loser’s bracket in the 13-3 defeat.
Starkville started things off with a bang when Brennan Templeton doubled to center in the first at-bat. The Texas pitcher settled in to strikeout the side but not before a wild pitch brought Templeton home for a 1-0 lead. That was the only lead that Starkville enjoyed.
