NEW YORK WINS FIRST SERIES TITLE FOR U.S. SINCE 2011

SOUTH WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. — Ryan Harlost led Endwell, N.Y., to the Little League World Series title, striking out eight and holding South Korea to five hits in six innings in a 2-1 victory Sunday.

Endwell became the first U.S. winner since Huntington Beach, Calif., in 2011, and gave New York its first championship since 1964.

Conner Rush had the New York team's only RBI to give Endwell a lead in the bottom of the fourth that it wouldn't relinquish. Harlost scored the deciding run on a passed ball a batter later.

"I was just thinking get it in play any way you can," Rush said. "Once that happens, you never know what can happen."
