Chicago’s Jackie Robinson West wins U.S finals in Little League World Series.

In the bottom of the first inning, JRW was down 3 to nothing against Nevada when Trey Hondras sends one over the right field wall for a 2 run homer.

Josh Houston pitched three straight score-less innings… allowing the team to take the lead.

Fast forward to the bottom of the fifth inning, the score is tied at 5, Brandon Green hits a grounder to third which is enough to score the go ahead run.

In the top of the 6th, Nevada was threatening, Ed Howard gets a ground ball back to the mound and the boys from the South side turn a game ending double play, winning them the title of U.S. champs!

The team will face South Korea for championship Sunday.

Two more watch parties are scheduled today for the world champion title…
