For the second consecutive year, the state of Kentucky will be represented at the Little League World Series.
Bowling Green East Little League knocked off Michigan’s Essexville-Hampton Little League, 7-2, in a game delayed two days by rain that started in Indianapolis and finished in Williamsport, Penn.
Carson Myers went 1-for-2 with a home run for the Great Lakes Region champions, and he was one of five players with an RBI in the game.
