In a tight game, Lewisberry, Pa.'s Chayton Krauss came through in the clutch to knock off Pearland, Texas 3-2 for the U.S. title.

Krauss came up men on first and third and one out. After fouling off a couple pitches and working the count, Krauss lined a walk-off single to the opposite field to send home the winning run and clinch the victory in style for his Red Land Little League team.

With more than 45,000 fans in the stands watching, the game set a Little League World Series attendance record. This was the first U.S. championship for a Pennsylvania team since 1990.

Pennsylvania takes on Japan for the championship Sunday at 3 p.m. ET on ABC.

Japan won the international title on a walk-off hit of its own Saturday, topping Mexico 1-0.
