SOUTH WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. -- Joshua Houston and his teammates from the west side of Chicago arent ready to go home just yet. Pierce Jones and Trey Hondras homered, and Houston hit a tiebreaking RBI single in the fifth inning as Chicagos Jackie Robinson West beat Cumberland, Rhode Island, 8-7 on Monday night in an elimination game at the Little League World Series. "It means a lot because its been 31 years," said Marquis Jackson, who had two hits and scored twice. "It shows anything is possible." The Jackie Robinson West team, representing the Great Lakes, is comprised of all African-American players and is making its first appearance in the World Series since 1983. It will play Pearland, Texas, on Tuesday night. "I dont think they really grasp whats going on," manager Darold Butler said. "It doesnt matter who theyre playing. This teams a special team." Jones led off the game with his fourth homer of the World Series, a solo shot to centre field, to get Chicago rolling, his teammates embracing him when he crossed home plate. Cumberland responded with two runs in the bottom of the first. CJ Davock singled to left and Addison Kopack walked. Tyler Provost followed with an RBI single to centre and Kopack scored when the cutoff throw sailed past Houston at third. Hondras hit a towering three-run homer to centre in the second to stake Chicago to a three-run lead and Houstons RBI single in the top of the third made it 6-2. Undaunted, Cumberland laced six straight hits to spark a five-run rally in the bottom of the third to take a 7-6 lead. Kopack had a run-scoring single, Provost laced a two-run single to left, and Trey Thibeault lined a shot down the left-field line that just cleared the fence for a two-run homer. Hondras tried to spark Chicago in the fourth, but he was thrown out at third trying to stretch his line drive that bounced off the left-centre field wall. Chicago protested, but the call was upheld, although a replay showed the fielder missed the tag. In the fifth, lefty-hitting Darion Radcliffs hard RBI single to left tied it for Cumberland before Houston drove a line drive down the left-field line to bring in pinch-runner Lawrence Noble from second base with the decisive run. It wasnt the way Cumberland manager Dave Belisle wanted his season to end. Not after his impassioned speech had sparked that scintillating 8-7 comeback win over Nashville, Tennessee, on Saturday. "We showed our character again. It has to end sometime," Belisle said, fighting back tears at the end of his interview. "They gave me memories Ill take home for a lifetime. The whole region of New England is loving us, not for our wins but for our effort. They gave me the summer of my life." PEARLAND, TEXAS 11, LYNNWOOD, WASHINGTON 4 Layne Roblyer hit a three-run homer in the third inning, his second homer of the tournament, to lead Pearland in an elimination game. Pearland scored five runs on two wild pitches, a passed ball and a single in the sixth to seal the win. Pearland will play Chicago on Tuesday night. Lynnwood was eliminated. VENEZUELA 2, PUERTO RICO 1 Ronny Medina struck out nine for Venezuela. Medina came through in the elimination game, pitching five innings and allowing just two hits. "Ive been working hard every single day to achieve what Ive done up to now," Medina said. Puerto Ricos lone run came in the bottom of the first and was unearned as Yadiel Santana stole home on a passed ball. Venezuela gave Medina the support he needed early, scoring once in the first and second innings. Julio Rejon hit a solo homer in the first and Jorge Cabrera came home in the second after catcher Alvin Martinez overthrew third base on an attempt to throw out Cabrera stealing. MEXICO 6, AUSTRALIA 2 Erick Velas three-run home run was enough for Mexico. Trailing by two in the bottom of the fourth, Vela stepped to the plate with one out and runners at second and third. He hit the first pitch far over right-field wall to put Mexico ahead by two. Ruy Martinez hit a solo shot to centre in the fifth for the final run. Aldair Tellez pitched 5 2-3 innings and struck out 12 for the win. RAPID CITY, SOUTH DAKOA 5, CZECH REPUBLIC 3 Two errors by the Czech Republic and an RBI double by Daniel Vigoren in the fifth inning helped Rapid City earn a consolation game victory. Vigoren hit a line drive to the right-field gap to score Logan Miller and give Rapid City a 5-3 lead. The hit came after Colton Hartford got in a run-down between third and home, and Czech Republic relief pitcher Tomas Oppelt made a throwing error to third base, allowing Hartford to score. Vigoren later scored on an overthrow by Czech Republic shortstop Marek Krejcirik. Sean Kuraly Bruins Jersey . Jose Bautista homered for the fifth straight game in the sixth inning, following a two-out solo homer by Melky Cabrera.
