Hawaii shuts out South Korea to win Little League title
Pitcher Ka'olu Holt tosses complete game in victory
It only took one pitch for Mana Lau Kong to deliver Hawaii its first Little League World Series title in a decade.
It's the first Little League World Series title for Hawaii since 2008. Hawaii is now one of seven U.S. states with at least three LLWS championships.
Hawaii got two runs in the third inning by capitalizing on a rare miscue from South Korea.
A wild pitch from starter Kim Yeong-hyeon scored Zachary Won, and Taylin Oana ran in all the way from second after an errant throw home. The mistake was just the second error of the tournament for South Korea.
Holt allowed just two hits and struck out seven.
Seoul, South Korea, has played in the three of the last six LLWS title games, but won only once — in 2014. It lost in 2016 to Maine-Endwell, New York.
