As the old saying about the Philadelphia baseball team goes, it's not over until the 27th, errr... 18th out!

The Taney Dragons took advantage of every single one of their outs and found a way to battle back in the bottom of the 6th (the bottom of the 9th equivalent in Little League) to earn the come-from-behind victory over a tough Texas team.

Tai Shanahan hit the walkoff winner thanks in large part to an errant throw from the opposing shortstop.

The pride of Philly will return to the diamond on Wednesday night to continue their journey in the Little League World Series when they take on a slugging Las Vegas squad.

A full report from Williamsport, PA on the big 7-6 win on Sunday night can be found here.
