Goodlettsville, Tenn., pushed across two runs in the top of the sixth inning and went on to claim a 4-3 come-from-behind victory over McAllister Park, Texas, on Wednesday night in a Little League World Series U.S. bracket quarterfinal in Williamsport, Pa. Representing the Southeast Region, the Tennessee team earned a berth in Saturday's tournament semifinals. Trailing 3-2 entering the final inning, Goodlettsville (3-0) quickly put two men on with none out. Jake Rucker reached on a leadoff walk and Jason Brown singled to put runners at second and third. Rucker advanced and scored the tying run on an error, and Brown came home with the game-winner on catcher Cole Carter's single. Reliever Ryan Lyle entered in the fifth and worked two-thirds of an inning for the win. Luke Brown pitched the sixth for a save. Zachary Sanchez led McAllister Park, going 2-for-3 with a double and two runs scored. The San Antonio team, representing the Southwest Region, is 2-1 and plays Petaluma (Calif.) in a Thursday semifinal qualifier. The winner meets Goodlettsville in Saturday's semifinals.
