TUCSON (KGUN9-TV)- The Nogales Little League Intermediate Baseball team took the day off to go sightseeing in San Francisco on Thursday afternoon.

Nogales defeated  the Southeast (Barboursville, West Virginia) on Wednesday night in the World Series tournament and is one step closer to the championship game.

"Once I got that first batter out things just went my way and I threw a great game," said Nogales Pitcher Jorge Bojorquez.

Nogales will now face the East (Berlin) on Friday at 7pm.

Nogales Head Coach Jorge Guerrero said, "The frist win was big. That means one more win and we're in the U.S. Championship!"

The winner of the U.S. Championship would then go on to play the International Champion. That winner would take home the World Series title.
