The Eastlake Little League team from Sammamish beat the Midwest team from Iowa, 6-5, to stay alive in the Little League World Series.

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll was among the people offering congratulations via Twitter: "Congrats to Sammamish for winning tonight and moving on in the Little League World Series! Keep representing the Great NW!"

Jacob Dahlstrom drove in two runs on four singles to help Sammamish win despite squandering a four-run lead.

Dylan Matsuoka's two-run single in the third inning extended Sammamish's lead to 4-1. The Northwest champions added two more in the sixth before Urbandale mounted a late threat.

With two out in the Iowa's final at-bat, Brook Heinen hit a two-run double to the wall in center, and then scored on a wild pitch. Reliever Will Armbruester, however, ended the game by striking out Grant Garwood.

Eastlake takes on the Southeast team from Nashville, Tenn. on Tuesday at 5 p.m. Seattle time.
