Chicago gears up for matchup with South Korea

Posted: Updated:
SOUTH WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. (AP) -- Chicago manager Darold Butler admits he doesn't know much about South Korea going into the Little League World Series championship on Sunday afternoon.

That's OK, he added. He knows enough about his own team to calm any of his fears.

Butler's Jackie Robinson West team came back to beat Las Vegas 7-5 on Saturday to win the U.S. title.

Earlier, South Korea put up seven runs in the second inning to cruise to a 12-3 victory over Japan for the International title.

Both coaching staffs say they've been so preoccupied with just getting to the championship that they haven't had much chance to scout potential opponents. But they said they hoped their players got a good night's rest and continued playing the way they have been.
