Matt Kubel baffled Nebraska's bats and ninth-place hitter Patrick Steed helped ignite two big innings for Fairfield, Conn., in a 12-0 victory Saturday at the Little League World Series.

Steed walked and scored in a three-run third inning before getting an RBI double and coming home on Biagio Paoletta's own two-base hit in a six-run fourth. Connecticut moves on to play Monday while the kids from Kearney, Neb., were eliminated from title contention.

The crafty Kubel, a 13-year-old lefty, struck out six.

Nebraska plays Germany in a consolation game Monday. Kearney's favorite sons are still a big hit back home for being the first squad from Nebraska to qualify for the World Series.
