    Canada against Mexico today.

    Already it's 2-0 Canada with the bases loaded and only 1 out in the top of the 1st. Love this!!!!

    The kids must be pumped to be on ESPN live. What a great tournament.

    Before I can even post this it's now 3-0 Canada thanks to a wild pitch that got to the backstop. Runners at 2nd and 3rd.

    Forced the pitching change. Little League rules tie pitch counts to the amount of rest the player must have between times on the mound. So 40 pitches in Mexico has to sit down their ace. I wish they'd go back to the innings pitched rule but that's not PC enough.

    Score is 5-0 with the bases loaded and 1 out still in the top of the 1st. Canada has batted around the order.

    Got the ESPN working in the 5th wheel....

    Walked the first Mexican batter.

    The Mexican that started on the mound is a 13 year old - 5'8" 178 pounds. YIKES!!!

    Since 2005 every Canadian entry at the Little League World Series has come from British Columbia.

    The last Alberta entry was from Calgary as Calgary West had the honor in 2001.

    Canada's best showing came in 1965 when they lost in the finals. 2 other Canadian teams have medaled at the LLWS with 1990 and 1998 teams coming in third.

    2 run shot over the fence with no outs here in the bottom of 2.

    8-3 Canada right now.

    Little League is a different beast! Mexico with a big inning here in the 2nd and have hit 3 home runs.

    8-7 Canada still but another pitching change in the works.

    ESPN bumps the game to their ESPNews channel.

    Canada falls to Panama today 8-3. Slips over to the loser bracket but hope isn't lost yet but it will be a stiff test against the loser of Japan vs Taiwan.
