LOWER SUSSEX, Del. - Nicole Rodriguez hopes every outing could go as well as Sunday, as she threw a shutout to carry the Cape Coral Softball Little League to a 3-0 victory over Canada District 7, and claim the Senior League Softball World Series Championship title.
Rodriguez baffled Canada, striking out 13 batters, and surrendered just one hit over 6 2/3 shutout innings.
Tayli Filla put herself in scoring position with two extra-base hits for the Southeast Region champs. She singled in the second inning, tripled in the fourth inning, and homered in the sixth inning.
Cape Coral Softball Little League didn't relinquish the lead after scoring one run in the fourth inning when it scored on a groundout by Samantha Massaro.
