Marion County faced a win or go home situation on Monday of last week against South London at the 9-and-10-year-old Little League state tournament.
The All-Stars' bats never woke up as they lost 3-0 in a defensive battle. The loss would eliminate them from the tournament after pool play.
Marion County could only manage two hits, a single by Trent Farmer in the first and a double in the sixth, against South London's pitching staff.
South London jumped out to a 1-0 lead in the second and would never need to score again. They added insurance runs to make it 2-0 in the fifth inning and then 3-0 in the sixth inning.
Logan Peterson took the loss from the mound, going for 75 pitches through six innings.
