Jackie Robinson West did it again tonight, defeating Pearland of Texas by a score of 6-1. Chicago's Jackie Robinson West team of the Morgan Park community played outstanding defensive play and team effort. They will play again Thursday night, inching ever closer to the Little League World Series championship game. #LLWS2014
