SOUTH WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. (AP) — Joshua Houston had a clutch two-run single, reliever Cameron Bufford pitched a tense scoreless sixth inning, and Chicago held off gritty Philadelphia 6-5 in a matchup of inner-city teams at the Little League World Series. Chicago will play Las Vegas in the U.S. title game Saturday.

The loss eliminated Philadelphia and prevented star pitcher Mo’ne Davis from getting one last shot to put another stamp on what had become her personal playground.

Japan will play South Korea in the international championship game on Saturday.
