Philadelphia's Taney Dragons continue to be the story of the Little League World Series, scoring a 7-6 walk-off victory over Pearland, Texas, on Sunday to advance in the tournament.

Thirteen-year-old sensation Mo'ne Davis, who threw a two-hitter and struck out eight in a 4-0 win over Nashville on Friday, did not pitch against Pearland but delivered an RBI single in the first inning. Davis became the sixth girl to collect a hit in LLWS history.

Trailing 6-5 in the bottom of the sixth inning, Philadelphia's Scott Bandura reached base with a bunt and scored on Zion Spearman's triple, tying the game. Spearman scored the winning run after Tai Shanahan reached on Pearland shortstop Matt Adams' throwing error to first base.
