Hawaii will play Curacao on Sunday in the Little League World Series championship after each team wins its group on Saturday. Due to the coronavirus, it will be the first title clash with an international team since 2019, which also featured Curaçao.
Here’s a look at the teams.
HOW DID THEY GET HERE:
Hawaii has yet to lose a game in the expanded 20-team tournament, entering Sunday with a 5-0 record. Neither game has been close.
It was a 13-0 loss to Tennessee that saw Hawaii advance to the game to represent the United States in the finals of the tournament. Hawaii once again defeated Tennessee with a 5-1 win to advance to Sunday’s championship.
Curacao has had a much longer road to the championship. After beating Nicaragua 2-0 to open the tournament, Curaçao fell 9-3 to Panama to miss out on the winners’ side of the international draw.
Since then, Curaçao has had to win five games in a row to reach the championship. The Caribbean team beat Italy, Canada, Nicaragua and Mexico to reach the international final, then defeated undefeated Taiwan 1-0 to advance to the LLWS championship.
PLAYERS TO WATCH:
For Hawaii, Jaron Lancaster has been one of their stars. Jaron pitched three hitless innings against New York. At the plate, he’s hitting over .500 and has hit a couple of home runs. Jaron is eligible to pitch in Sunday’s championship.
Cohen Sakamoto has been a force both on the mound and at the plate. Cohen was excellent as a starter on Saturday against Tennessee, throwing 4 2/3 innings of a run. At the plate, he has been nearly unstoppable and has also hit two home runs.
Davey-Jay Rijke has been the leader in the Curaçao field. He struck out 15 batters in Curaçao’s 7-2 victory over Nicaragua. Although he was hitless on Saturday, Davey-Jay had a remarkable sixth-inning catch against Taiwan in center field to preserve that 1-0 victory.
In that same game, Jaydion Louisa came off the bench with a go-ahead single to give Curacao its only run. Jaydion will be a bat to watch, whether in the starting lineup or off the bench.
Curaçao has become accustomed to close matches in the tournament thus far. After Saturday’s 1-0 win, Curacao now has three wins from a run in the tournament. He has also outscored opponents by just six runs in seven games. Hawaii, meanwhile, has a 45-run lead over their opponents.
Each team has been to the final recently. Hawaii won it all in 2018, while Curacao lost to Louisiana in 2019.
