The Cranston Western All-Stars are headed for the Little League World Series in Williamsport, PA.  Cranston used the long ball to beat Bedford, NH, 10 to 4.

Cranston Western lost the first game of the New England tournament in Bristol, but then went on a roll, ending with today's victory in the Regional title game to earn them a ticket to the World Series.

Cranston's Nick Mason hit a grand slam, followed by a solo shot by Dylan Demers in the third.  Jared Olson also homered, and Jake Bender hit a bases clearing double in the 6th to seal the victory.

ABC6 Sports reporter Nick Coit was in Bristol and has the postgame celebration.
