Curaçao defeated Japan 5-4 in the International Championship. The win was Curaçao's third international title, and the small island nation of 162,000 will be vying for its first overall title since 2004 when Oakland A's infielder Jurickson Profar was on the team. Profar's younger brother Jurdrick is on this year's team. Curaçao is lead by Curley Martha. Martha had a two-run homer versus Japan and was effective on the mound, but exceeded the 20-pitch threshold, meaning he will not be eligible to pitch today.

Since the LLWS expanded to 16 teams in 2001, this will be the first time that both teams in the championship game advanced from the elimination bracket.
