An Iowa team rallied to post its first victory at the Little League World Series Sunday. The squad from Urbandale scored five runs in the bottom of the fifth to edge Mercer Island, Washington 5-3.
First baseman Jake Quirk had the big hit, a two run homer that gave the Iowans the lead after they trailed in the game 3-0 heading into the bottom of the fifth. Next up is a matchup tonight against Staten Island, New York. A victory would qualify the Iowa team for the U.S. semifinals.
