SOUTH WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. (AP) — Joseph Davis allowed one hit in 4 2-3 innings and Newark, Del., scored five times in the first inning to beat Urbandale, Iowa, 6-3 in the Little League World Series on Friday night.

The Mid-Atlantic champions had six hits in the first, including for straight by Nathan Hardcastle, Davis, Eric Ludman and Jack Hardcastle. Jared Owens added a two-run single and Ryan Miller followed with a run-scoring triple.

Brady Roberts and Sam Petrillo had the only two hits for Iowa. Roberts drove in Brock Heinen in the first inning. Iowa scored its other runs on a passed ball in the second and a wild pitch in the seventh.

Davis and Nathan Hardcastle, who pitched 1 1-3 innings in relief, each had two hits for Newark, which will face Chula Vista, Calif., on Sunday.

Urbandale drops to the loser’s bracket and meets Grosse Pointe, Mich., on Saturday.
