Update: Jackie Robinson West Beats Texas/ Taney Dragons Fall To Vegas [VIDEO]
Chicago's Jackie Robinson West is now within one win of the U.S. Little League World Series Championship game! Philadelphia's Taney Dragons fall to Las Vegas.
Tuesday's (August 19th) game was another nail biting episode as Chicago's Jackie Robinson West was fighting for their lives.
The kids from Morgan Park suffered one loss to Nevada and were in the elimination game with Pearland, Texas Tuesday (August 19th) night, which would decide whether they were going home or get a chance to in the semi-finals. If you missed all the action, you view the entire game here.
Wednesday night (August 20th) Philadelphia's Taney Dragons lost to Las Vegas, Nevada 8-1. Fortunately it was a double elimination game for Philly and that means they will get to play again Thursday night.
As for Las Vegas, they were also 2-0 in the Little League World Series and will wait to play the winner of Thursday nights game, in the U.S. Championship game. I hate it, but this means the Philadelphia Taney Dragons will take on the Chicago's Jackie Robinson West in the final U.S. elimination game at 6:30 pm CT Thursday night. What a game it's gonna be! Good luck to both of them!
