One night after Asia-Pacific fell to Japan by just one run, the Little Leaguers® from Chinese-Taipei held off the Little Leaguers from Puerto Rico, winning 6-4 at Volunteer Stadium in the International Bracket.
"I told them that they have already performed well last night so don't think too much about the loss last night," Asia-Pacific manager Kuo-Chiang Lee said through interpreter Chia-Hsien Lin. "Focus on the game today and do your best."
Representing the Caribbean region, Puerto Rico made Asia-Pacific sweat it out in the sixth inning as they loaded the bases with just one out, but reliever Tung-Jua Yeh got out of it, producing two groundballs.
The loss ends the Caribbean regional champs’ run at the Little League Baseball® World Series title.
"Something that we learned about playing with other international teams is the discipline that they have, especially the Chinese-Taipei team, the Japan team," Puerto Rico coach Erick Contreras said. "They are very disciplined. We aren't. We have to learn from them. After the game, I was very proud of them just to get here. They have to learn some things."
The Caribbean jumped out to an early 3-0 lead after three innings. Pablo Sanchez scored the game’s opening run in the second inning and went on to hit a two-RBI double.
Asia-Pacific was held hitless through the first two innings and had six hits in the game, but manufactured its first run when Kai-En Wu knocked in Teng-Yu Wang on a fielder's choice.
Asia-Pacific then took the lead with a four-run fourth inning. Chao-Wei Huang spearheaded the inning when he drove in a pair of runs on a single down the first-base line. The two-RBI single put the Chung-Ping Little Leaguers ahead for good.
They added another run in the fifth inning, but the Samaritana Little Leaguers didn't leave without a fight, scoring once and getting three runners on base in the final frame.
Asia-Pacific will play the winner of Canada and Latin America on Tuesday at 4 p.m.
