SOUTH WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. (AP) — Joshua Houston hit the tiebreaking RBI single in the fifth inning which lifted Chicago’s Jackie Robinson West to an 8-7 victory over Cumberland, Rhode Island, on Monday night in the Little League World Series.

After Darion Radcliff’s RBI single tied the score, Houston stepped-up and drove a line drive down the left field line to bring in pinch-runner Lawrence Noble from second base.

Cumberland scored five runs in the bottom of the third to take a 7-6 lead, but couldn’t score in the last two innings and was eliminated.

Chicago will play Pearland, Texas, on Tuesday night.
