Pearland Little League gets first World Series win

Pearland Little League gets first World Series win

Forget Roger Clemens. For a feel-good baseball story, look no further than Pearland, whose All Star team just notched a victory in their first Little League World Series game.

Facing Plymouth, Minn., the Pearland boys got off to an 8-0 start with a duo of homers from Jake Orlando, three RBI from Jorge Gutierrez and a solo shot by Blake Toler.

Plymouth rallied with a grand slam with one out left in the sixth and final inning, bringing the game 10-8, but relief pitcher Pryce Beshoory got a strikeout for the final out.

Pearland next takes on Fairfield, Conn. on Sunday at 7 p.m.
