SOUTH WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. (AP) - Christopher Koeiman drove in two runs with a tying sacrifice fly, Mychellon Jansen hit a tiebreaking solo homer and Willemstad, Curacao beat Vancouver, British Columbia 4-3 on Monday to advance at the Little League World Series.
Trailing 3-1 entering the fifth, Curacao had runners on second and third when Koeiman hit a fly ball to left with one out. Carter Kada-Wong fell backward to make the catch, but both runners had enough time to score.
Jansen then homered to give Curacao the lead for good.
Cole Dalla-Zanna was the hard-luck loser for eliminated Canada, striking out nine.
Canada took a 3-1 lead in the fourth when Noah Hanson-Stafford came off the bench to hit a two-run homer.
