Pennsylvania's Mo'ne Davis delivers in the first inning against Tennessee during a baseball game …

SOUTH WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. (AP) -- Mo'Ne Davis, one of two girls at the Little League World Series, threw a two-hitter to help Philadelphia beat Nashville 4-0 on Friday in the opener for both teams.

The first girl to appear for a U.S. team in South Williamsport since 2004, Davis received rousing cheers during pregame introductions, every time she stepped to the plate and after she struck out the final batter.

''It's very unreal. I never thought at the age of 13 I would be a role model,'' Davis said. ''Hopefully, more girls play Little League.''

Davis had eight strikeouts and didn't walk a batter. She retired the first six batters and needed only 70 pitches to complete the game. She was hitless in three at-bats.

Philadelphia shortstop Jared Sprague-Lott hit a three-run home run in the first inning, and outfielder Carter Davis had an RBI sacrifice fly in the sixth.
