With Pennsylvania's Taney Dragons one win away from the U.S. championship game in Williamsport, 13-year-old phenom Mo'Ne Davis took the mound hoping for another dominant performance, but Nevada's high-powered offense forced her off the mound early.

Nevada got on the board in the first thanks to an RBI triple, but Davis rebounded by striking out three consecutive batters and stranding the runner on third.

Philadelphia Phillies GM Ruben Amaro compared Davis with Phillies pitcher Jonathan Papelbon Monday. During the break, ESPN broadcasters said after the first inning that Davis didn't like the comparison, because 'he gives up runs.'

Davis got in trouble in the second inning. With a runner on base, she gave up a home run to Nevada's Dallan Cave giving Nevada a 3-0 lead but recorded another two strikeouts to get out of the inning.

Davis threw 43 pitches through the first two innings, and walked her first batter of the third. After a sixth strikeout of the game, Davis was taken off the mound and moved into the field after 2 and 1/3 innings pitched.
