Alizabeth Schuler homers to left center against Mexico.

Alizabeth Shuler pitched six innings of one run ball, and went 2-3 at the plate including a solo homer over the left center field wall, as the South Williamsport major girls defeated Mexico 3-1 tonight (Saturday) in Portland, Oregon.

Lynna Clark doubled and scored for South, and Abby Lorson went 1-1 with an RBI single. 

South plays Iowa tomorrow. Since they have already qualified for the next round, tomorrow's contest will only determine seeding. Then Monday, the remaining eight teams will start a single elimination round, where three consecutive wins would bring home a World Series Title.
