The 2017 Little League World Series comes to an end with the championship game between Japan and Texas on Sunday. Here’s how to watch:
Lufkin Little League (Texas) vs. Tokyo Kitasuna (Japan)
Time: 3 p.m. ET
Where: Howard J. Lamade Stadium in Williamsport, Pa.
Japan comes from the international side of the bracket, having gone 4-0 in pool play. Outscoring its opponents 27-1, the closest game Japan has played was a 4-1 victory over Asia-Pacific. This has clearly been the most dominant team in Williamsport.
From the U.S. bracket, Lufkin, Texas is the “Southwest” representative. It lost, 2-1, to North State (Greenville, N.C.) on Wednesday — it’s a double-elimination tournament — but avenged the loss with a thrilling comeback victory on Saturday. Texas trailed 5-0 through three innings, but scored two runs each in the fourth, fifth and sixth innings to take the U.S. title (box score).
