HUNTINGTON BEACH — "Everybody hits" is the phrase coaches or parents use when they’re trying to spur on a big inning. Rarely has the phrase been as appropriate as it was Thursday night for the Ocean View Little League 9/10 All-Star squad.

He was five for five with two home runs, two doubles and nine RBIs as Ocean View cruised past Robinwood, 26-1, in the final game of the best-of-three District 62 championship.
