Sunnyside Little League’s Juniors Softball team rallied from an early 2-0 deficit to beat Greensburg (PA) 5-3 in extra innings of their World Series opener in Kirkland, Washington.

Yannira Acuna had three hits and an RBI for Sunnyside while pitching all nine innings in the victory.

Sunnyside (1-0) will now face the European-African champion Milano, Italy in their second game Monday at 2 p.m. Tucson Time.

Italy defeated Baja Mexico 5-1 in their opener.

Sunnyside is now 9-1 in the post-season as the core of the team that won the Little League Majors World Series last summer tries to bring home a second World Championship.
