SOUTH WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. (AP) - California came up big late to win the Little League World Series.
Bulla Graft's single scored the go-ahead run in the fourth inning and Chula Vista rallied to defeat Taoyuan, Taiwan, 6-3 on Sunday to take the Little League crown.
Kiko Garcia pitched three-plus scoreless innings of relief to settle down a California team that fell behind 3-0 early.
California scored a run in the third before surging ahead in the fourth. California tied it on a sacrifice fly and wild pitch before Graft's single with two outs scored Andy Rios for a 4-3 lead.
Garcia got Yu Chieh Kao to strike out to end the game.
The United States has won five straight titles.
