SKorea player steals home in win over Puerto Rico

SOUTH WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. (AP) Jun Hyeok Yun stole home to score the go-ahead run and South Korea beat Puerto Rico 8-5 in the Little League World Series on Sunday.

Entering as pinch runner, Yun raced home after teammate Hae Chan Choi drew a throw to second base from catcher Jeremy Colon in the top of the sixth. South Korea added two runs later in the inning and Jae Yeong Kim pitched a perfect bottom half of the inning.

Awaiting South Korea on Wednesday is the winner of Mexico vs. Japan.
