SOUTH WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. (AP) — Ryan Harlost had three hits, four RBIs and pitched five scoreless innings to help New York beat Rhode Island 7-2 on Thursday in the 70th Little League World Series.

Harlost finished a single shy of the cycle.

He sliced a three-run home run to left field in the first inning for a 3-0 lead. In the second, Jude Abbadessa hit a two-out, two-run single and later scored on Harlost's triple to right field. Harlost had a bloop double in the fifth, but two Rhode Island relievers combined to strike out three to end the inning.

Rhode Island had runners on the corners with two outs in the fifth, but Harlost recorded his fifth strikeout. After a short rain delay in the sixth, Sean Gallagher's hit to right field scored two for Rhode Island but he was thrown out at third base to end it.
