No team in the history of the Burbank Little League had ever advanced to a World Series championship game.
The Burbank Major Softball All-Star team had a chance to advance to the championship game of the 2010 Little League Softball World Series by making it to Tuesday's semifinals.
Burbank was able to keep its dream season alive by earning a 10-0 victory against Tigard, Ore., in a game at Alpenrose Stadium in Portland, Ore.
The game was halted after four innings because of the 10-run mercy rule.
The win puts Burbank into the championship game at 4 p.m. today. The game will be broadcast on ESPN2. The locals will play the winner of Warner Robbins, Ga. and Poland, Ohio.
Burbank used a big six-run second inning to do most of its damage against host Oregon.
"That inning was huge for us," Burbank Manager Bruce Del Castillo said. "I think after we went up that that many the girls could kind of taste the victory. That really motivated them."
