SOUTH WILLIAMSPORT, Pennsylvania — Daniel Vigoren's go-ahead double and two errors by the Czech Republic helped Rapid City, South Dakota, win 5-3 at the Little League World Series on Monday.

Vigoren hit a line drive to the right field gap after Colton Hartford scored the tying run when he got in a rundown between third and home and Czech Republic pitcher Tomas Oppelt made a throwing error to third base.

Vigoren later scored on an overthrow by Czech Republic shortstop Marek Krejcirik.

Czech Republic's Miroslav Krivanek tied the game at 2 in the top of the fifth with a bloop RBI double into shallow right field. Krivanek took third on the throw and scored on a wild pitch moments later.

Krejcirik homered in the game's first at-bat. In the third inning, Rapid City took the lead with a two-run double into the left field gap by Matthew Hegre.
