SOUTH WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. (AP) — Jacob Dahlstrom drove in two runs on four singles and Sammamish, Wash., hung on for a 6-5 win over Urbandale, Iowa, in a Little League World Series elimination game last night. Dylan Matsuoka's two-run single in the third inning extended Sammamish's lead to 4-1. The Northwest champions added two more in the sixth to build a 6-2 lead before avoiding a late scare to stay in contention in the U.S. division loser's bracket. Sammamish will face Nashville, Tenn., today.
