Little League: California beats Japan in World Series

It all ended with a walk-off hit in the bottom of the last inning. California won the championship, 2-1.

An American flag draped around his shoulders, Braydon Salzman couldn’t contain his glee when he found California teammate Nick Pratto to give him a postgame hug.

The boys from Huntington Beach are headed home with a Little League World Series championship.

Pratto singled in the winning run with two outs and the bases loaded in the bottom of sixth inning, and Salzman pitched a complete-game three-hitter in a 2-1 victory Sunday over Hamamatsu City, Japan, and the tournament title.
