Warner Robins team routs Crawford
PORTLAND, Ore. -- A team from Warner Robins, Ga., defeated a team from Crawford, Texas, 14-2 on Wednesday in the championship game of the Little League Softball World Series.
Warner Robins is the first Little League to have won titles in both softball and baseball. The baseball team won in 2007.
Carson Carrike doubled in a pair of runs in a six-run second inning then drove in another with a single in the six-run third for Warner Robins.
Georgia Gov. Sonny Perdue, who is from Warner Robins, and former President George W. Bush, who lives in Crawford, each donated $500 to help with travel expenses for the teams as part of a friendly wager on the game.
