SOUTH WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. -- Isaiah Jensen allowed just two hits and no earned runs in 4 1/3 innings to help Bend, Oregon beat Emilia, Italy 6-2 on Monday in a consolation game of the Little League World Series.

Oregon put runners on second and third with no outs in the second inning but scored just once on Chase Terry's sacrifice fly. Jensen kept Italy scoreless through four innings and didn't give up a hit until Samuele Gamberini singled off the center-field wall in the fourth.

Oregon scored five runs in the bottom of the fourth to make it 6-0. Julian Mora sliced a RBI single to right field, and Bowen Nelson and Zack Reynolds hit back-to-back RBI triples with two outs.

Italy got on the board in the fifth on Oregon's only error. In the sixth, Italy loaded the bases with one out and scored one run on a fielder's choice.
