PEARLAND – Pearland Little League is staying alive in Williamsport.
The team beat Iowa on Tuesday night with a score of 4-0, and is continuing to advance in the elimination bracket.
The Texas team will now face the Mid-Atlantic Region team from Hollidaysburg, Pa. for a second time at the World Series.
Game time is set for 6 p.m. in Houston.
“Just do what we did last time and we should be fine,” said third baseman, Cohen Hartman.
Pearland beat Hollidaysburg 8-3 last Thursday.
Hollidaysburg has now won three games in a row leading up to Wednesday’s game when more than 20,000 fans are expected at Lamade Stadium.
“I’m expecting a good game. They played two really good games in a row, they run-ruled somebody 10-nothing yesterday, so we expect a real battle,” Pearland Little League Manager Aaron Cummings said.
If Pearland wins tonight, the boys will need one more win Thursday night for a spot in the U.S. Championship game on Saturday.
