Mo’Ne Davis dominated in her team’s opening game in the Little League World Series on Friday, becoming the first girl to throw a shutout in LLWS history. Davis’ Philadelphia team – the Taney Dragons – beat a Tennessee team 4-0, and she struck out eight batters.
Davis is the 18th girl to play in the Little League World Series but the first to throw a shutout. She also threw a shutout in the Mid-Atlantic Final win that sent her team to the LLWS. She was hitting 70 mph with her fastball and allowed just two hits.

Lastly and most crucially, however, there’s Mo’ne Davis, a 13-year-old girl pitching for the Pennsylvania-based Taney Dragons. She threw a complete-game shutout against Blake Money’s Tennessee squad, allowing just two hits and no walks while recording eight strikeouts.
In short, the Little League World Series is the best, even if there’s no way that the rest of the tournament can top the last 24 hours.
