Louisiana caps historic Little League World Series run with world title

River Ridge's Eastbank All Stars capped off its historic run in the Little League World Series with a dominant win over Curacao to claim the 2019 championship on Sunday in Williamsport, Pennsylvania.

Eastbank knocked in 8 runs on 10 hits to secure the 8-0 shutout win. Pitcher Egan Prather threw a complete game with 6 strikeouts, 2 hits and no runs earned in 6 innings.

"It feels amazing," Prather said on the field following the game. "I've been dreaming about this since I was a little kid."

Just like the team's win in the U.S. Final against Hawaii on Saturday, a strong fifth inning powered Eastbank to victory as the team raked in four runs on four hits and two walks — including a massive double on a line drive to right field by Reece Roussel.
