Curley Martha's two-run homer and Shendrion Martinus' two-run double paced the Caribbean entrant as they knocked off Japan 5-4 in the International Final this afternoon at Lamade Stadium in South Williamsport.

Japan rallied with two runs in the bottom of the sixth but left the tying run on third as they flew out to left to end the game.  

The championship game is tomorrow at 3:00. Curacao now awaits the winner of today's American Final between Hawaii and Louisiana.
