LIVERMORE (KGTV) - Scripps Ranch Little League defeated Ankeny LL of Iowa 7-0 on Sunday afternoon at the Little League Intermediate World Series (LLIWS) in Livermore, CA

The LLIWS is a baseball tournament for children aged 11 to 13 years old that began in 2013. Six teams from the United States and six teams from around the world are represented. 

Scripps Ranch started playing in June and were crowed West Region champs in Arizona last week. That followed division, section, and state tournament titles throughout Southern California, earning them a trip to the LLIWS. 

SR will play West Boynton Beach, Florida, the Southeast region champ, tomorrow at 3 p.m.

The championship game is on Sunday, August 5th and will be televised by ESPN.

The traditional Little League World Series featuring teams of 11 and 12-year-olds begins the following week in Williamsport, PA. Park View Little League in Chula Vista remains in contention for that tournament.
