The story of Philadelphia’s Mo’ne Davis keeps on getting better. One of only two girls in the Little League World Series, the 13-year-old pitched a two-hit shutout to lead Philadelphia, Pennsylvania over Nashville, Tennessee 4-0 on Friday afternoon. Needing only 70 pitches, Davis struck out eight and didn’t walk a batter as she became the first girl to throw a shutout in the LLWS, and to win a game.
