(FOX News) - New York’s Maine-Endwell beat South Korea, 2-1, to win the Little League World Series on Sunday, becoming the first US team to win the title since 2011 and the first team from New York to win since 1964.
Ryan Harlost allowed one run during a complete game effort, striking out eight. Harlost also scored the decisive run on a passed ball during a two-run fourth inning that provided Maine-Endwell with all the offensive support it would need. Conner Rush hit an RBI single to give New York its first run in the inning.
South Korea struck back with a solo home run from Yoomin Lee in the fifth inning, but the international winner was unable to rally further.
Maine-Endwell ended its perfect season 24-0.
