"It was a well-played game," Glendale Coach Marcel Martinez said. "The kids did the best they could. We might have been a little bit outclassed, but not much.
"We competed really well and I was really proud of our guys for giving them a go. A base hit here and there and all of a sudden we're looking at a different story and we're advancing."
Trailing, 6-1, after four innings, Glendale, which opened the tournament on Saturday with a 12-2 win over Simi Valley and lost to Westchester, 6-5, on Sunday, only to bounce back with a 16-6 win over Simi Valley on Monday to reach Tuesday's game, began to chip away in the fifth inning.
Matthew McElligot led off the inning with a ground-rule double and Brian Gadsby drove him in with a two-run home run to trim the deficit to 6-3.
Glendale then took advantage of some wildness from Westchester's pitching, which doled out two bases-loaded walks in the sixth inning to let the lead dwindle to 6-5.
But Westchester would pad the lead with a run in the bottom of the sixth before closing it out.
Glendale briefly led, 1-0, in the top of the second when Michael Gee scored Kenny Barrera, who had singled, with a sacrifice fly.
"Westchester has such a good program, I mean I've come in second to them in this tournament in different age groups for six consecutive years," Martinez said "[It's hard] to compete with them, and I think in the last couple years we've competed very favorably."
