South Dakota throws combined no-hitter

WILLIAMSPORT, P.A. — In a game that was decided by pitching, South Dakota was unstoppable, winning its first game of the Little League World Series in a 2-0 shutout over Louisiana.   

Gavin Weir, who threw a perfect game in the Midwest regional tournament, added a World Series no-hitter to his resume in another exceptional performance on the mound. He struck out all three batters in the third, fourth and fifth innings. Weir had 15 strikeouts in 5⅔ innings, before Cason Mediger came in to close out the win.

“Going through my mind was ‘I just need to throw strikes and not worry about anything and just focus on one thing at one time,' ” Weir said. “I felt a little pressure — I mean, in the bottom of the sixth I walked the first guy in four pitches — but I just settled down, and I knew I could do it.”
