SOUTH WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. -- Pitcher Clint Wynn got all the run support he needed as Warner Robins, Ga., routed Lake Oswego, Ore., 9-4 on Friday.

Warner Robins (1-0) was aggressive on the basepaths, taking advantage of passed balls, throwing errors and a couple other miscues from Oregon (0-1) to get an 8-0 lead by the third inning.

Zane Conlon had two RBI doubles, but misplayed a grounder at shortstop in the sixth that allowed a run to score and extend a late rally as Oregon pulled to within 9-4.

But Hunt Smith snared a bouncer down the first-base line to start a game-ending double play.
