BRISTOL, Conn. (AP) — Pitching sensation Mo'ne Davis' latest start has drawn record television ratings for the Little League World Series.

ESPN said Thursday her team's game earned the highest ever preliminary rating for the event on the network. The 8-1 loss by Davis' Philadelphia squad to Las Vegas on Wednesday night received a 3.4 overnight rating, up 143 percent from the corresponding game last year.

The 13-year-old Davis rose to a national celebrity after becoming the first girl to pitch a shutout in her team's LLWS opener. She was removed after just 2 1-3 innings Wednesday, allowing three runs and striking out six.

The game drew a 16.3 rating in Las Vegas and a 14.9 in Philadelphia.

Ratings represent the percentage of homes with televisions tuned to a program. Overnights measure the country's largest markets.
