Little League World Series USA Finals Live Stream (8/21): How to Watch Tennessee-Hawaii Online, TV, Time

Hawaii and Tennessee will play a rematch on Saturday, August 21 to decide which team will represent the United States in the Little League World Series championship. The game will be streamed live on DirecTV Stream (free trial) and fuboTV (live stream).

Hawaii is a team that hits early and often. The Honolulu team outscored their opponents 42-1 in the tournament, going through the winners’ bracket to get to this game.

The trip began with an 11-1 win over Washington State in which Hawaii’s lone run gave up came in the fifth inning. Hawaii then New York without a hit and Texas with a hit. Finally, the Western Region champion, who finished third in last year’s tournament, hit five homers in a 13-0 loss to Tennessee to clinch a berth in the U.S. Finals.

Hawaii manager Gerald Oda missed several games with COVID-19 but was back for the Tennessee game.

Tennessee was undefeated until meeting Hawaii. The club from Nolensville, south of Nashville, outscored New England in Game 1 5-3 and then took on Utah 11-2. Tennessee then beat Indiana in an extra thriller before the blowout loss to Hawaii.

A complete Drew Chadwick game against Texas helped Tennessee survive the losing streak with a 7-1 win and earn the chance to play Hawaii again.

When is Tennessee-Hawaii?

Tennessee will play in Hawaii on Saturday, August 27 at 2:30 p.m. (3:30 p.m.).

Insight

PLAYERS TO WATCH: Hawaii’s Cohen Sakamoto led the field both offensively and defensively, averaging .714 batting and 17 strikeouts and allowing no hits on the mound. Sakamoto homered twice in Game 1 against Tennessee, including a Grand Slam in the first inning.

Hawaii’s Jaron Lancaster, who sports a blonde mohawk, struck out seven in the combined no-hitter against New York and added his own insurance runs with a triple and a home run.

Tennessee’s Jack Rhodes opened a 2-2 tie in the extra innings of Indiana’s game. Rhodes has a hit in four of his five games and Tennessee will likely need big contributions from him to beat Hawaii.

FUN FACT: Hawaii has only played one full game in this tournament. Three of the four matchups were won via the mercy rule. The pitching staff has the same number of wins — four — as opposing hitters have hits against them. This is Hawaii’s third appearance in the semi-finals since 2018, when the team won it all.
