WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. -- Southeast Region champion Loudoun South showed no signs of slowing down in its second game of the 2019 Little League Baseball World Series on Sunday.

Following a 3-0 victory in its opener Friday, Loudoun South needed just four innings to bring the 10-run mercy rule into effect Sunday against Midwest Region champion Coon Rapids (Minnesota).

Starter Justin Lee delivered Loudoun South's second no-hitter in as many games, and the Southeast champions scored three runs in the first inning, five in the second and three more in the third for an 11-0 victory here at Lamade Stadium in Williamsport, Pennsylvania.

As a result of winning consecutive games to begin the LLWS, Loudoun South has two days off before returning to action Wednesday night. The team from South Riding will play either the West Region or Mid-Atlantic Region at 7:30 p.m.

Wow. Invoking the 10-run mercy rule is always impressive. But when you're playing the best of the best and do it in only four innings on a national stage, now that's something special! Keep the party going Loudoun South, don't get cocky, and who knows where this train will end up?
