This could be the beginning a successful career for Davis following her time in the World Series this year.

 

(CNN) — There will be no more Mo’ne Davis, at least for now.

The Sports Illustrated cover girl and her Philadelphia team are out of the Little League World Series after losing an elimination game Thursday night in Williamsport, Pennsylvania, to a squad from Chicago.

Mo’ne’s Taney Dragons jumped out to a quick 2-0 lead, but it didn’t last. The Jackie Robinson West Little League club went ahead 4-2 in the bottom of the first inning, and added two more runs the next frame.

Taney narrowed the score to 6-4 in the fourth inning, then to 6-5 the next. But despite advancing the tying runner to third base in the bottom of the sixth and final inning, the Dragons couldn’t finish off the comeback.

The result means Chicago will face off against Las Vegas at 3:30 p.m. ET Saturday for the U.S. championship. The winner of that game plays for the World Series title on Sunday.

It also ends Mo’ne’s high-profile run on youth baseball’s biggest stage. While other girls have played in the World Series, none have gotten the same attention as the South Philadelphia resident and Taney Dragons standout.

The 13-year-old became a national sensation after tossing a shutout — giving up three hits and notching six strikeouts in the process — to help Taney become one of the final 16 World Series contenders.
