2014 Little League World Series…Mo’Ne Davis doesn’t pitch but hits RBI in Pennsylvania’s win over Texas

first_imgPhiladelphia’s Mo’ne Davis drives in a run with a single to right field off Pearland pitcher Clayton Broeder during the first inning of a baseball game in United States pool play at the Little League World Series tournament in South Williamsport, Pa., Sunday, Aug. 17, 2014. (AP Photo/Gene J. Puskar)Thirteen-year-old pitching sensation Mo’Ne Davis didn’t pitch Aug, 17 during the Taney Dragon’s (Pennsylvania) matchup against Pearland East (Texas) in the 2014 Little League World Series tournament in Williamsport, Pa. Little League rules require pitchers to rest a full three days between pitching performances.But Davis’ absence from the mound didn’t stop her from making an impact in Taney’s 7-6 comeback win over Texas.Instead of pitching, Mo’Ne played shortstop on defense and contributed in the batting lineup Sunday night. She popped a RBI single near center field in the first inning to help her team take an early 2-0 lead, and was walked during her next at-bat in the bottom of the fourth inning. She later hit a ground ball and was quickly thrown out during her third and final at-bat in the fifth inning. With her RBI single, she became the sixth girl to record a hit in LLWS history and fourth to post an RBI.With Davis resting her arm, the team’s next best pitcher, 12-year-old Jared Sprague-Lott, started the game for Taney. Sprague-Lott threw eight strikeouts but also gave up two home runs and five earned runs total. Sprague-Lott was replaced in the fifth inning after giving up his second homer. Joe Richardson took over the pitching mound for Taney but gave up another run to push Texas ahead, 6-3, in the top of the fifth.Zion Spearman came up big for Taney with an RBI double in the bottom of the fifth and Kai Cummings added an RBI single to help cut the score to 6-5 heading into the sixth inning. Taney then clinched its comeback victory after Spearman smacked a RBI triple in the sixth inning to tie the score at 6, followed by a Texas throwing error on a walk-off single by Tai Shanahan to give Taney the 7-6 win over Texas.Taney (2-0) will see it’s next LLWS action on Wednesday, Aug. 20.  Mo’Ne Davis will start the game as pitcher.– See more at: http://www.afro.com/mone-davis-doesnt-pitch-but-hits-rbi-in-pennsylvanias-taney-dragons-win-over-texas/?utm_source=Afro+Weekend+Sports+Wrap-Up+E-Blast%3A+August+18%2C+2014&utm_campaign=Sports+Lineup&utm_medium=email#sthash.9godUIv9.dpuflast_img read more

Hong Kong title will make up for Asiad disappointment: Saina

first_imgSaina Nehwal with her trophy in Hong Kong. PTIAfter clinching her career’s fourth Super Series title with a thumping victory in the Hong Kong Open, ace Indian shuttler Saina Nehwal on Sunday said the triumph has made up for the disappointment of last month’s Asian Games debacle.”It was fantastic especially since I didn’t do well in the Asian Games. I didn’t train much before this tournament and didn’t expect to win. May be because I practiced a lot before the Asian Games so I decided to relax but I am very happy to win it here,” said Saina, who had lost in the quarterfinals of the Asian Games in China last month.Saina beat China’s Shixian Wang 15-21 21-16 21-17 to lift her third Super Series title of the year and said she was confident of pulling off a win even though she lost the first game.”I was nervous in the first game but I was confident at the same time. After I won the second game I gained more confidence. I was on the slower side and I expected her to hit negative shots and she did.”In the third game the strategy was to have a lead before I moved to the slower side and I was leading 11-9. I was moving well today and was confident of pulling off the match,” she said.Saina is the only Indian female shuttler to break the Chinese stranglehold in badminton and the Hyderabadi said she went into the match with a never-say-die attitude.advertisement”It is always difficult to beat Chinese players because they are physically strong and have good strokes but it is not impossible. I went with this attitude,” she said.Saina had earlier won back-to-back titles — Indian Open Grand Prix, Singapore Open Super Series and defended the Indonesian Super Series — before clinching the gold medal in the Commonwealth Games in October in New Delhi.Saina, who dropped to fourth in the world rankings, is likely to inch closer to the number one spot with this resounding victory.”I always wanted to win more tournaments and also become the number one but I didn’t expect to be number one by this year one and it would be another big dream come true. It will give me a lot of confidence,” she said.The world number four Indian said she would take a break and would be back to training for next season which would be a year of 2012 London Olympic qualification.”Just want to relax a bit and then it would be back to training and gear up for the Olympic qualification year next season,” she said.With inputs from PTIlast_img read more
