Yun Jun-hyeok stole home to score the go-ahead run, and South Korea went on to defeat Puerto Rico 8-5 on Sunday at the Little League World Series (LLWS).

South Korea fell behind early 3-0, but came back to tie the game at 5 in the sixth, and Yun raced home when a teammate drew a throw to second base from the opposing catcher to perfectly execute a delayed steal.

South Korea added two runs later in the inning and Kim Jae-yeong pitched a perfect bottom half of the inning to win two straight at the Little League World Series in Williamsport, Pennsylvania, following a 29-year absence.

South Korea will face Japan next on Wednesday. South Korea can clinch a spot in the international side final with a win over the defending champions.

In 2013, the team from Japan won the title, beating California in the championship game, 6-4.

Japan has defeated Latin America 1-0, and Mexico 9-5 so far in this year’s double-elimination tournament.
