The Goodlettsville All Stars rallied from two deficits to beat Texas 4-3 and advance to the United States Championship Game at the Little League World Series Wednesday night.

Jordan Brown and Brock Myers hit back-to-back homers in the third to give Tennessee a 2-1 lead in the third.

Texas scored two in the fifth to take a 3-2 lead and put Tennessee just three outs away from having to play again on Thursday.

"That would be awesome. They'll come home and we'll be really excited for them," Hayden Lane said.

Baseball fan, Raymond Bois added, "Them boys will be famous!"
