Hawaii shuts out South Korea to win Little League World Series title

ESPN reported that it is the first Little League World Series title for the state since 2008.

Hawaii shut out Georgia 3-0 and Kea's complete game sealed its berth in the Little League World Series championship. Hawaii has all of its pitching available and is the only team on the USA side of the bracket with more than one home run.

Although the win was an emotional one for Hawaii manager Gerald Oda's team, he took the time to remind his team to pay tribute to the South Korea team that entered the championship game undefeated.

ASSOCIATED PRESS South Korea's pitcher Yeong Hyeon Kim (14) celebrates after the final out against Japan with catcher Gi Jeong Kim and third baseman Tae Hyun Kim (5) in the International Championship baseball game at the Little League World Series tournament, Saturday, Aug. 25, 2018, in South Williamsport, Pa.

Against a South Korea team that hadn't surrendered a home run in the tournament, Kong drove the first pitch his team saw over the center field fence. "Because we all knew that pitcher was tough to hit".

Fans gather to view Aretha Franklin’s body in Detroit
In the first hours, hundreds of people from multi-generations visited the public viewing with signs, Aretha T-shirts and more. He said the casket in which Franklin rests is 24-karat gold-plated and the top of the line.

Holt allowed just two hits and struck out seven. Kea tossed 6 shutout innings against Georgia in the first matchup between the two teams, and ended the game in the 11th inning with a home run. "Once they bought in and once they accepted their roles, it makes my job a lot easier".

Georgia won't be thrilled to learn that Aukai Kea (Hawaii) is available to pitch again today after throwing just 50 pitches in Hawaii's victory over NY on Wednesday.

Holt threw 79 pitches Sunday, striking out eight and walking one against South Korea (4-1).

"I just pitched my heart out", Kea said.
