SOUTH WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. - CJ Davock hit a two-run, two-out single in the bottom of the sixth inning to give Cumberland, Rhode Island, an 8-7 victory over Nashville, Tennessee, on Saturday night in an elimination game in the Little League World Series.

Nashville scored five runs off reliever Davock in the top of the inning. With two out, Robert Hassell III hit a two-run homer to give Nashville a 6-5 lead, and Sam Slaughter added his second home run of the game.

In the bottom of the inning, Mason Matos had a one-out single to cut it to one. Nick Croteau grounded out, with the runners advancing to second and third, and Davock followed with his walk-off line drive to centre.

On Monday, Cumberland will face the loser of the game Sunday between Chicago and Pearland, Texas.

Nashville will play Vancouver, British Columbia, in a consolation game Tuesday.
