Pearland, Texas, stayed unbeaten with a 14-1 rout of Fairfield, Connecticut, in only four innings. Pearland's powerful offense ran aggressively on the basepaths and took advantage of Connecticut miscues to go to 2-0.

Beau Orlando led off the game with a homer, and added an RBI double in a seven-run second before the game was called after four innnings because of the 10-run rule.

Connecticut will play an elimination game Monday night against Washington.

Pearland will next play on Tuesday.
