NORWALK, Conn. -- The Norwalk Riptide 16-and-under softball team went 2-2 in the Babe Ruth Softball World Series over the weekend in Wilson County, N.C. The team did not earn a berth in the six-team double elimination round.

Two one-run losses hurt Norwalk's bid to advance. The Riptide lost its opening game, 3-2, to Hoquiam, Wash., on Friday morning. It bounced back to win Friday night, 6-4, over Fern Creek, Ky. On Saturday, Norwalk beat East Beaufort, N.C., 5-2.

Norwalk lost its final game on Sunday, 3-2, in eight innings, to Edenton-Chowan, N.C. Norwalk took one-run leads on two occasions on the champions from the East region of North Carolina but couldn't hold them. Norwalk also could not capitalize on several other good scoring chances.

Tori Rodriguez had three hits for Norwalk.
