South Kingstown Little League keeps doing its thing.
Both the South Kingstown American and South Kingstown National 11-year old All-Star teams were victorious Tuesday in the District 3 losers' bracket quarterfinals, as SKA beat East Greenwich 4-2 and SKN topped Warwick Continental 3-0.
SK National's starting pitcher Thomas Whitford had the best performance of the evening, striking out 14. National scored three times in the third inning, which was more than enough, and Sam Kaczynski came on in relief of Whitford to earn the save.
For American, Bo Brutti and Blaine Lidsky combined to throw a solid game; Brutti struck out 10 in five innings and Lidsky closed out the game in the sixth, striking out tow of the three batters he faced.
The teams meet up in the losers' bracket semifinal Thursday at 5:30 p.m. at Tuckertown Park.
