CHICAGO (AP) - Fans of Chicago’s Jackie Robinson West will have another chance to party and watch the children play baseball.

Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel says the city will host a watch party Tuesday evening for family and fans of the Little League team. Jackie Robinson West will play Pearland, Texas.

Joshua Houston’s tiebreaking RBI single in the fifth inning lifted Jackie Robinson West to an 8-7 victory over Cumberland, Rhode Island in the Little League World Series in Williamsport, Pennsylvania.

After Darion Radcliff’s RBI single tied the score, Houston drove a line drive down the left field line to bring a runner in from second base.

Cumberland scored five runs in the bottom of the third to take a 7-6 lead, but couldn’t score in the last two innings and was eliminated.
