A final inning, 6-run rally from the Louisiana squad advances the team to the finals of the Southwest Regional against a squad representing eastern Texas.

A bases-loaded walk pushed the winning run across the plate.

Tomorrow’s game is set for noon. It will air on ESPN.

WACO - The Ascension Parish U12 Little League team will be back in action Monday afternoon in a "survive-and-advance" game against the champions from Oklahoma.

The two teams have already played each other once in the contest. Louisiana defeated the team from Tulsa, Okla., 5-1 on Friday.

The rematch is set to begin at 2 p.m. and will be televised on ESPN.

The winner of that game will advance to the finals, on Tuesday, against a team representing east Texas. The regional winner will move on to the international Little League World Series in Williamsport, Pa.
