Iowa rallies to beat Washington 5-3 at LLWS

Posted:

SOUTH WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. (AP) -- Urbandale, Iowa, rallied from an early deficit Sunday with a five-run fifth inning highlighted by Jake Quirk's three-run homer to defeat Mercer Island, Wash., 5-3 at the Little League World Series.

Leading 3-0, Washington starter Keegan Ogard allowed just one hit until the fifth, when Iowa started making solid contact. Ross Kramer doubled, moved to third on Spencer Sturges' single and scored on Robert Vanderlinden's two-base hit.

That set up Quirk's dramatic homer over the right-field wall. Giddy teammates greeted him with high-fives at home plate.

The winner of Iowa's next game, Monday night against Staten Island, N.Y., advances to the next round.

Aidan Plummer tripled and scored twice to lead winless Washington.
