------------------

It was a heartbreaking loss when the Pearland Little League team lost in Williamsport, Pennsylvania Sunday night, but they have another chance to play Monday.

If they win against the team from Lynwood, Washington, they stay in the game, but if they lose, they will be out of the double-elimination tournament.

On Sunday, Pearland was an out away from winning.
Instead, the All-Stars suffered a heartbreaking 7-6 loss to Philadelphia.

Leading 6-5 in the sixth inning, Zion Spearman hit a triple to center field that scored Scott Bandura.
The ensuing batter, Kai Cummings, hit a ground ball single to shortstop. The ball was thrown over the head of the Pearland first baseman, scoring Spearman and giving Philadelphia a walk-off win.

The team gets to battle it out again in the Little League World Series at 2 p.m. Monday.
