KKKKKKKK. HAVE YOU HEARD OF MO’NE DAVIS?
Mo’Ne Davis #MoneDavis continued her run of dominance in the opening round of the Little League World Series. A 13-year-old #GIRL who grabbed headlines last week when she led her Philadelphia team to Williamsport, Davis steamrolled her Tennessee opponent on Friday.
Mixing a fastball that topped out around 70 mph with an effective slider, Davis needed only 70 pitches to shut out Tennessee for the complete six-inning game. She allowed two hits, struck out eight batters, and walked none.
The first girl to appear for a U.S. team in South Williamsport since 2004, Davis received rousing cheers during pregame introductions, every time she stepped to the plate, and after she struck out the final batter.
She became the first female pitcher to win a game in #LLWS history, according to ESPN Stats & Information.
