WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. -- The Federal Little League All-Stars from Hagerstown lost 15-5 to Mill Creek, Wash., in a Little League World Series game Monday.

It was Federal's first loss in tournament play this year after 16 consecutive victories.

Mill Creek pounded out 16 hits, including four by Jason Todd and two homers from Alec Kisena. 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.


Trailing 5-0, Federal scored three times in the first inning. Mill Creek stretched the lead to four runs before Andrew Yacyk's homer in the fourth closed the deficit to 8-5.

Both teams are 1-1 in pool play. The top two teams in Pool A will advance to the U.S. semifinal round on Thursday.
