Dodgers pitcher Christian Rasmussen struck out nine Reds in the victory.

Dodgers pitching and starter Christian Rasmussen got a lopsided 11-3 victory over the Reds Friday night in Elmo Plaskett East Little League Baseball action at the D.C. Canegata ballpark. Rasmussen started strong, striking out four of the first six batters he faced.

The Dodgers got on the board with a five-run burst in the bottom of the inning. Spencer Hendrickson had an RBI triple and Rashidi Knight and Rasmussen had RBI singles to highlight the scoring.

After a scoreless second inning, the Reds picked up a run in the top of the third on a pass ball to trail 5-1.

The Dodgers responded with four runs in their half of the inning to push the lead to eight runs, 9-1, on a two-run homerun by Aldemar Santos and two costly Reds errors.

Another pass ball gave the Reds their second run of the game in the top of the fourth and they trailed 9-2 at the end of four completed innings.

The Dodgers added two runs in the fifth on an RBI single by Rasmussen and a Reds error to lead the game, 11-2, into the final inning.

An unearned Reds run in the top of the sixth set the final score at 11-3 with the Dodgers coming away with the victory.

Rasmussen got the win on the hill for the Dodgers while Angel Rosa got the loss. Top batters for the Dodgers were Rasmussen (2 for 3 with two RBI), and Santos (3 for 4 with a homerun and two RBIs).

Good day my fellow Virgin Islanders, I am a fan of Little League baseball when ever I get a chance to be present at the ballpark and if not, I follow it via the newspaper or online. What I noticed this past weekend, especially Friday night at the park in east was "two 4-6 age group team playing" there was more kids in the ballpark than parents. People, the coaches are not there to baby sit, you need to be there also. "What a shame if you have a kid playing and you are not present". Next thing I noticed and this is going on for a while, that other games and/or teams are not commented on the media but "Dodgers" games. Other teams have won games also. On Saturday, Chuis West came to east and play, "that was important". I have witness other games that where won in the last inning, that was not on the news. Whoever is the person distributing the weekend games to the media "don't forget that there are other teams in the Little League East. Issue a weekend result for the Elmo Plaskett East Little League, not just one team. "I'll be watching".

Thanks for pointing this out Me-eh-noh. I to have noticed this phenomena of only reporting Dodgers games, especially the ones where Mr Rasmussen(sp) is featured. It would be great if all the games were highlighted,not just a select few.I know as a child when I had a good game I couldn't wait to read the paper to see if my name was in it. We have some amazing talent here on Stx,please lets highlight all of it.
