Chinese Taipei runs over Texas early
SOUTH WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. -- Chen-Wei Chen had three hits and Wei-Chih Chen fired a four-hitter to lead Kaoshiung, Chinese Taipei, to a 14-2 victory over Pearland Texas in a Little League World Series consolation game ended after four innings Sunday because of the 10-run rule.
Chinese Taipei jumped on two Texas pitchers for nine runs in the first, including Hsun-Hao Shih's two run-homer. Chinese Taipei had the tournament's most explosive offense, outscoring foes 62-6 over five games.
Wei-Chih Chen struck out four for Chinese Taipei, and allowed Beau Orlando's two-run homer for the Southwest region champs. It was Orlando's third home run of the 10-day tournament.
