SOUTH WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. — CJ Davock hit a two-run, two-out single in the bottom of the sixth inning to give Cumberland, Rhode Island, an 8-7 victory over Nashville, Tennessee, on Saturday night in an elimination game in the Little League World Series.

Nashville scored five runs off reliever Davock in the top of the inning. With two out, Robert Hassell III hit a two-run homer to give Nashville a 6-5 lead, and Sam Slaughter added his second home run of the game.

In the bottom of the inning, Mason Matos had a one-out single to cut it to one. Nick Croteau grounded out, with the runners advancing to second and third, and Davock followed with his walk-off line drive to center.

“I did tell C.J. that when I took him off the mound that good things would happen in the bottom half,” Cumberland manager David Belisle said. “I was very proud of him. …

“We play until the last out,” Belisle said. “We want to have the last word. On days like this, it’s a little different, but I’ve got the boys that do it.”

Also Saturday, Lynnwood, Washington, beat Rapid City, South Dakota, 7-5. In International play, Australia beat the Czech Republic 10-1, and Venezuela routed Canada 10-0 in five innings.

On Sunday, the eight teams who opened the tournament with victories will be in action. In U.S. play, Chicago will face Las Vegas, and Philadelphia will meet Pearland, Texas. In the International division, Seoul will play Humacao, Puerto Rico, and Tokyo will face Guadalupe, Mexico.

On Monday, Cumberland will face the Chicago-Pearland loser, and Lynnwood will meet the Las Vegas-Philadelphia loser. In consolation games, Rapid City will face Brno, Czech Republic, on Monday, and Nashville will play Vancouver, British Columbia, on Tuesday.

“Our boys never gave up,” Nashville manager Chris Mercado said. “We knew that’s what they could do. It was really fun. That was a good game.”

LYNNWOOD 7, RAPID CITY 5

Colton Walsh hit a two-run home run in the top of the fourth inning to give Lynnwood the lead and the Washington club held on to beat the South Dakota team.

Walsh homered off reliever Daniel Vigoren to give Lynnwood a 6-5 lead.

VENEZUELA 10, CANADA 0, 5 INNINGS

Ronny Medina hit a grand slam in the fifth inning, putting an early end to Venezuela’s victory over Canada.

Cesar Leonardo Vivas drove in three runs for the winners from Maracaibo, Venezuela. Jose Luis Atencio allowed two hits in 4 2-3 innings and struck out six.

AUSTRALIA 10, CZECH REBUBLIC 1

Callum Schipp struck out 11 in Australia’s victory over the Czech Republic.

Schipp allowed three hits in 5 1-3 innings for the team from Perth. Javier Pelkonen homered and went 3 for 3 with three RBIs.
