SOUTH WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. (AP) -- J. Troy Osborne knows his team doesn't always bat well. With his son on the mound, they don't always have to.
Zachary Osborne struck out 14 -- the last two with the bases loaded in the sixth inning -- as Louisville, Ky., beat Harlem 2-0 on Sunday night in pool play in the Little League World Series.
"We didn't hit the ball well tonight -- we only had two hits," the elder Osborne said. "But we were able to run the bases, take advantage of their mistakes. I feel lucky at this point."
Osborne struck out Fernando Frias and Spencer White to end the game after the New York City team loaded the bases on hits by Javier Lopez, Alibay Barkley and Jorge Lopez.
In other games, Aptos, Calif., beat Clemmons, N.C., 11-8; Fort Worth, Texas, routed Waipahu, Hawaii, 8-0; Agana, Guam, beat Dhahran, Saudi Arabia, 9-6; and Monterrey, Mexico, rallied to beat Moscow 4-3.
