Pearland wins 1st game of Little League World Series elimination bracket after losing to Hawaii

The boy's are hoping for a win Tuesday night

Pearland won their first elimination game of the Little League World Series against the Midwest Region team from Davenport, Iowa on Tuesday.

With tonight’s win, Pearland is now set to play the team they beat on Monday, August 8 in front of a crowd of more than 18,000 people.

If Pearland wins again, they will play again on Thursday, either against

Tennessee or again against Hawaii. If they lose, it’s over.

Pearland Little League found themselves in the elimination games after losing to Hawaii on Monday night.

“It’s not the end of the world,” coach Robb Zurek said. “When you go undefeated until now, it’s kind of a different feeling, right? When you walk away from a field not having won it and not having hit – I think that’s the biggest thing – we weren’t hitting like we normally do. It wasn’t a typical Pearland Little League game.”
