Carroll Hits Walk-off, 2-run Double; Tennessee Wins in LLWS
SOUTH WILLIAMSPORT, Pa (AP) — Robert Carroll hit a walk-off, two-run double with two outs in the sixth inning and Goodlettsville, Tennessee rallied past Bend, Oregon 3-2 on Thursday night in the Little League World Series.
Tennessee started the sixth with two straight hits to put runners on second and third. After a fielder's choice loaded the bases with one out, Oregon starter Zack Reynolds was replaced by Bowen Nelson due to a pitch limit. Nelson struck out his first batter but Carroll drilled a shot that glanced off the glove of the right fielder.
Tennessee will face Endwell, New York Sunday.
Reynolds gave Oregon a 2-0 lead in the third inning with a two-run triple. He held Tennessee to just one run through five innings.
Tanner Jones put Tennessee on the board in the third with a homer over the center-field wall. Starter Zach McWilliams pitched a complete game on 85 pitches and struck out nine.
