SOUTH WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. (AP)
Taoyuan, Taiwan, rallied to a 6-4 victory Monday over San Lorenzo, Puerto Rico, in an elimination game at the Little League World Series.
Taiwan (2-1) overcame a 3-0 deficit to stay alive in the International side losing bracket. The Asia-Pacific champion had a short turnaround following a 3-2 loss to Japan on Tuesday.
Huang Chao-Wei of Taiwan singled home two runs during a four-run, fourth inning. Lan Huai-Chein doubled and scored in the fifth inning.
Puerto Rico (1-2) threatened in its final at-bat, scoring once on a two-out, bases-loaded walk to Edgar Baez. But Robert Addarich bounced out to the pitcher to end the game.
Puerto Rico starter Leonardo Lizardi hit four batters into the fourth inning to tie a one-game series record set six times.
