SOUTH WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. (AP) - Shozo Kamata had a pinch-hit, go-ahead two-run single in the fifth inning to help Tokyo, Japan, beat Guadalupe, Mexico, 9-5 in the Little League World Series on Sunday.

With the game tied at 5, Kamata hit a slow ground ball up the middle that escaped the reach of Mexico’s shortstop and second baseman and made the score 7-5.

Japan added two more in the inning and Mexico could not respond, going down in order in the top of the sixth.

Japan advances to play Seoul, South Korea, on Wednesday.
