The Wellesley South Little League baseball team wasn’t fazed by losing its opening game in the state tournament, and went on to win three straight and capture the title with a 9-3 victory over Pittsfield on Sunday in Westwood. Mark Henshon homered twice in the game to give Wellesley an early lift. The win earns the team a trip to Bristol, Ct., for regionals, as the team aims to make it to Williamsport, Penn., for the Little League World Series next month.
It looks as if Wellesley will play on Monday, Aug. 8, and games will be televised by ESPN3. Wellesley South last made it this far in 2012.
