A grand-slam homerun earned Eastlake All-Stars their second win in Little League World Series competition play.

The team beat Mid-Atlantic's Delaware 15-3 Sunday afternoon with a grand-slam hit by Grant Holman in the fourth inning. It was Holman's first hit in World Series competition.

The 10-run rule brought the game to an end early.

Micah Wiggs was 2-3 with a 3-run homer and 4 RBI's. Jake Espinoza also had a strong performance with 1-2 with a 2-run homer.

Now 2-0 in series competition, the West Regional champs will face Westport, Conn. The game will be on ESPN Wednesday at 5 p.m. PT.

The winner of that matchup will advance to compete for the U.S. Championship.

The West Regional Champs won Friday's game against Michigan 3-0. In that game, Holman pitched a no-hitter.

The Western Regional Championship team roster includes Holman, Wiggs, Espinoza, Patrick Archer, Michael Gaines, Kevin Bateman, Rennard Williams, Dominic Haley, Charly Peterson, Giancarlo Cortez, Nick Mora and Ricky Tibbett.
