Mo'ne Davis becomes first girl to throw LLWS shutout

By Mike Axisa | Baseball Writer

Right-hander Mo'ne Davis of Philadelphia's Taney Dragons threw a complete-game shutout in her team's first game of the Little League World Series on Friday afternoon. They beat the team from Nashville 4-0.

As you can see in the graphic above, the 13-year-old Davis allowed two hits in her six shutout innings, striking out eight. She did not walk a batter and is the first female pitcher to throw a shutout in the Little League World Series.

Davis pitched so well that she caught the attention of a few big leaguers:

Davis threw a complete-game shutout against the team from Newark in the Regionals to punch Taney's ticket to Williamsport. She is also the first female to throw a shutout in Regional play.

Davis is the fourth American girl to compete at the Little League World Series.
