Pearland, TX Little League won their first game on Friday, against Rhode Island 6-4.  It was a very good game through the very end.  

Last night Pearland East played against Philadelphia in a heart stopping game.  Pearland was ahead 6-5 and Philadelphia made a comeback and won 7-6.  It was a great game.  This was Philadelphia's first time to play at the Little League World Series.

Go Pearland!!!!
