Mich. rally falls short

Puerto Rico blanks Australia to stay alive.

Grant Garwood struck out 13 and allowed one hit, and Urbandale, Iowa, avoided a final-inning meltdown to eke out a 6-5 win over Grosse Pointe, Mich., in a Little League World Series elimination game Saturday night.

Alex Augustine gave up a two-run single to Ryan Duffy and a three-run home run to Thomas Maxey before striking out Louis Cardinale to end the game. Garwood reached his 85-pitch limit, and had to be pulled with Urbandale ahead 6-0.

Brook Heinen hit a three-run home run for Iowa (1-1) in the fourth inning. Brady Roberts drove in two runs and Carter Troncin hit a solo shot in the fifth.

It was a near dramatic comeback for Grosse Pointe (0-2), which had not managed a hit in the tournament until Maxey opened the fifth-inning with a double.

The Great Lakes champions were no-hit in a 3-0, seven-inning loss to Chula Vista, Calif., on Friday.

Grosse Pointe will face Brno, Czech Republic, in a consolation game Tuesday.

Nashville 10, Corpus Christi 2

Trae McLemore hit a grand slam and drove in six runs to lead Nashville, Tenn., to a 10-2 victory over Corpus Christi, Texas, on Saturday in an elimination game at the Little League World Series.

Ben Pickman struck out 10 and allowed three hits over five innings for Nashville (1-1), which stayed in contention in the double-elimination tournament.

McLemore had a two-run single in the fourth inning, in helping Nashville build a 3-0 lead. With two outs and the bases loaded in the sixth, the 5-foot-11, 209-pound cleanup batter hit a 1-1 pitch over the fence in center off Jared Cruz.

Cruz responded with a solo home run in the bottom of the sixth off McLemore, who relieved Pickman. Juan Jasso singled and scored in the fifth for the Southwest champion.

Corpus Christi (0-2) will face Perth, Australia (0-2), in a consolation game Monday.
