Little League title dream ends in championship game.

The dream of a state championship came to an end for the Anderson County Little League baseball 9- and 10-year-old all-stars Wednesday morning in Richmond.

Owensboro Southern pounded the local team, bashing five home runs en route to a 17-4 romp past Anderson in the Little League State Tournament at Lake Reba Park in Richmond. The game was called after four innings with Owensboro Southern in front by 13 runs.
