The Little League World Series game Wednesday night between Ocean View of Huntington Beach, the team representing the West, and the Northwest team from Billings, Mont., making the state's first-ever LLWS appearance, was the highest-rated LLWS game on ESPN ever in the Los Angeles market.

Ocean View lost, 1-0, on a Montana walk-off home run in the bottom of the ninth. The game did a 2.6 rating in Los Angeles. The previous highest-rated game in the market was Chula Vista against Warner Robins, Ga., in 2009. That game did a 2.2 rating. The records have been kept since 2001.

Thursday at 5 p.m. PDT, Ocean View will play Clinton County, Pa., the Mid-Atlantic team, in an elimination game televised on ESPN2.
