A year ago, Robinwood Little League cruised through the Little League All-Star tournament en route to winning the District 62 championship. This year, with seven returning members from last year's squad suiting up again, Robinwood figured to be in the thick of the race for another district banner. It was and although it wasn't as overpowering, this team always seemed to find a way to win.
Tied up at 2-2 entering the sixth inning of Tuesday night's second game of the division's best-of-three championship series against Costa Mesa National, Robinwood came up with three runs in its last at-bat and made them stand in a title-clinching, 5-2 victory on its home field.
On Monday, Robinwood began the series with a 6-2 victory.
Robinwood has now won the last three district tournaments.
On the same night, Robinwood's Junior League team defeated host Westminster, 4-0, to also win a district title.
"These guys just keep battling," Robinwood Manager Scott Wagers said. "I told them beforehand, that this was a close-out game. A win gives us the district title.
