Urbandale falls 6-3 in LLWS opener

Posted: Updated:
WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. (KWWL) -

A slow start caught up to the boys from Urbandale as they'd fall 6-3 to Newark, Delaware, in their opening game of the Little League World Series.  The loss drops Urbandale to the elimination bracket where they'll face Grosse Point, Michigan, on Saturday night.

Delaware jumped out to a 5-0 lead in the first inning, and the rough beginning was just too much to overcome.  The kids from Urbandale scored 2 in the bottom half, but got no closer as they mustered only 2 hits over the course of the 6 inning game.
