The East Lynn Little League Major League Padres are the champions of the 2021 Lynn City Series.
The undefeated Padres bested the Pine Hill Braves, 11-1, in the final round of the double-elimination tournament at Volunteer Field.
ELLL All-Star Braeden Ohannesian led the way for the Padres with a superb performance, yielding three hits while striking out six batters.
The Padres were able to halt the momentum of the Braves, who made a great run in the loser’s bracket after falling to West Lynn early in the tournament. Pine Hill’s talented 12-year-old pitcher Elijah Morin excelled throughout the City Series, highlighted by a 15-strikeout performance that helped his team earn a spot in the finals.
“It certainly was an exciting tournament,” said Pine Hill Little League President John Cronin. “The championship didn’t go our way, but there’s no reason for our team to hang their heads, because the Padres were a fantastic team this year and were clearly the best team in the city.”
The Lynn City Series resumed this year after a one-year absence due to the pandemic which canceled the 2020 tournament.
