SOUTH WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. -- Getting hit in the left foot by a pitch never felt so good to Jose Gonzalez. As the Aguadulce, Panama, infielder limped his way toward first base, Edgardo Rosales was celebrating on his way home from third to score the decisive run. It happened with two outs and the bases loaded in the bottom of the sixth, sealing Panamas 8-7 win over Taoyuan, Taiwan, in a Little League World Series elimination game Tuesday. "The only thing I was thinking was to try to get on base one way or another," Gonzalez said through interpreter Gilbert Monell. "And after being hit by the pitch I felt very happy." Down to its last out, Panama rallied with four runs to overcome a 7-4 deficit. Jordan Agrazal had three RBIs, including a two-run single in the sixth. And Rosales would not have been in a position to score had he not reached base because of a two-out error by Yeh Tung-Jua, who bobbled a grounder to third. "It was a difficult game. It was important that we won," manager Luis Gonzalez said through Monell. "I congratulate all the kids on the other team for their effort. Our team never gave up, and that made us get the victory." Panama (3-1) advanced to face one of the two other remaining International Division teams -- Tijuana, Mexico, or Tokyo -- on Thursday. For Taiwan, it was a shocking turn of events for the tournaments youngest team, which includes five 11-year-olds -- the most of any squad. Several Taiwan players, including catcher Lee Chen-Hsun, broke down in tears following the game. Panama catcher Juan Crisp and several teammates went over to console their opponents. "I saw a couple of players on their team crying, and even a couple on our team," manager Gonzalez said. "It was a great game. Theyre kids. You can expect that." Taiwan manager Lee Kuo-Chiang provided essentially the same answer in taking only three questions following the game. "(I) never thought about pulling (the) pitcher because (I) believe the player will do his best, and the player has already learned from the game," Kuo-Chiang said through interpreter Lin Chia-Hsien. "The players did not give up." Yu Teng-Yao took the loss in relief of Tung-Jua, who was forced to leave with one out in the fifth after reaching his 85-pitch limit. Taiwan showed plenty of perseverance in rallying to take the lead after giving up four runs in the first inning. Lee Shu-Ming had a two-run single to cap a six-run third inning that put Taiwan ahead 7-4. Chou Shih-Che drove in two runs on three hits for Taiwan. Armando Lopez hit a three-run homer in the first inning for Panama. Earlier in the day, Brno, Czech Republic (1-2), beat Grosse Pointe, Mich.

Brock Nelson and fellow rookies delivered down the stretch and provided a glimpse at a brighter future for the Islanders, who head into the off-season after missing the playoffs for the sixth time in seven years. Nelson scored with 3:44 remaining to force overtime, and then netted the lone shootout goal in a 4-3 win over the Buffalo Sabres on Sunday night in a season-ending matchup of non-playoff teams. The Islanders (34-37-11) won by rallying from a 2-0 deficit and closed the season by winning three straight and eight of 12 (8-2-2). "These kids have played extremely hard, and Im proud of what theyve done not only in the last month and a half, but these last three games," Capuano said. "They really stuck together." The future looks even better after Capuano reiterated that Tavares is on track in his recovery from a left knee injury and should be ready to begin training in the summer. There is much more work to do in Buffalo. Torrey Mitchell, Jamie McBain and Matt Ellis scored for the Sabres (21-51-10), who had already clinched the NHLs worst record. The Sabres went 0-6-1 in their final seven games. With 150 goals scored, Buffalo set the NHL-low in the leagues post-expansion era that began in 1967. The previous low was 151 by Tampa Bay in 1997-98. "The standard has to be set a little bit higher than it was," Sabres coach Ted Nolan said. "Well address that starting with the meetings (Monday)." Nelson, an Islanders first-round pick in the 2010 draft, was eager to show what potential the teams youngsters possess. "We knew we had a young group and a lot of rookies," said Nelson, who topped the Islanders rookie class with 14 goals and 26 points. "We wanted to go out there and give it everything we had every night. I think we were able to do that." Nelson scored the lone shootout goal on the Islanders second shot. He snapped a shot that rookie Connor Knapp got a piece of with his stick. But there was enough backspin ffor the puck to dribble in.dddddddddddd. Anders Nilsson stopped 36 shots through overtime and all three he faced in the shootout. Nilsson clinched the victory by using his glove to sweep away a puck that got away from Ville Leino as he drove to the net. Anders Lee, a recent call up, scored twice in a game the Islanders never led until the final score. The Sabres bookended their season with long droughts. Buffalo got off to a 2-13-1 start, and ended with a 2-16-2 skid. "This is our job and we failed. So its definitely salt in the wound," forward Marcus Foligno said. "I guess when it rains it pours, and you really just got to keep putting your head down and moving forward." Though both teams rosters were depleted by injuries, the Islanders fill-ins proved to be better. Down 2-0, Lee scored both his goals in a span of 3:40, bridging the second intermission, to tie it 17 seconds into the third period. Mitchell put the Sabres ahead by deflecting in Rasmus Ristolainens shot 10:09 into the third, before Nelson scored the equalizer. Using Ristolainen as a screen, Nelson snapped in 40-foot shot over Knapps left shoulder. The only thing on the line for the Islanders was where they would finish in the overall standings. The win pushed them into 26th place, two points ahead of Calgary. There is a Sabres tie-in for the Islanders connected to a trade in which Buffalo sent Thomas Vanek to New York for Matt Moulson and a first-round draft pick in one of the next two drafts. The Islanders have until June 1 to determine whether to give up their selection this year or hold off. NOTES: The Sabres 21 wins are the fewest in an 80-plus-game season, and rank second fewest behind Buffalos 16-43-19 finish in 1971-72. Buffalo matched the 21 wins it had in the lockout-shortened season last year. Their 51 regulation losses are the most ever. ... The Islanders went 21-18-2 on the road for their best finish since going 21-15-3-2 in 2001-02. ... The Sabres were forced to call up G Andrey Makarov, D Mark Pysyk and LW Nicolas Deslauriers from AHL Rochester after the team lost five players to injuries at Boston on Saturday.
