SOUTH WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. (AP) - The Cumberland Little League team from Rhode Island is set to take on a squad from Chicago in a win-or-go-home game for both teams.

The teams are scheduled to face off at 8 p.m. Monday at the Little League World Series in South Williamsport, Pennsylvania. The game will be shown live on ESPN2.

Cumberland is coming off an exciting 8-7 win over Nashville, Tennessee, on Saturday night. CJ Davock hit a two-run, two-out single in the bottom of the sixth inning to clinch the game, after Nashville had taken a 6-5 lead with five runs in the top of the inning.

The Chicago team is coming off a 13-2 loss to Las Vegas on Sunday in the double elimination tournament. Cumberland lost to Pearland, Texas on Friday.
