SOUTH WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. -- Mill Creek, Wash., pounded out 16 hits, including four by Jason Todd and two homers from Alec Kisena, in a 15-5 rout Monday of Hagerstown, Md., at the Little League World Series.

Todd went 4-for-4 with a three-run homer and finished a triple short of the cycle as Washington secured its first win in the tournament.

Maryland scored three times in the first and added an Andrew Yacyk homer in the fourth to close the deficit to 8-5 but couldn't keep up with Washington's hot bats. A seven-run fifth inning sealed the game for Washington.
