With the score tied 5-5, Brown lunged after a high 1-2 pitch for the clutch hit just past diving first baseman Danny Marzo down the right field line.

Myers then smacked his homer to left. The 12-year-old shortstop raced around the basepaths in delight, arms oustretched as his happy teammates waited for him at the plate.

SAN ANTONIO 13, NEW CASTLE, IND. 3

San Antonio remained unbeaten at the Little League World Series, breaking open a tight game with a six-run fourth inning in a victory over New Castle, Ind.

Leading 3-2 in the top of the fourth, Texas took advantage of four hits, two walks and a hit batter to account for its big inning.

Seth Morrow, Carter Elliot and Mason Moore had RBI for the San Antonio sluggers in the fourth.

Jordan Cardenas added a two-run homer in the sixth.

The Southwest champions took a 3-0 lead in the top of the first on Zachary Sanchez’s two-run homer and an Indiana error.

TOKYO 2, TAOYUAN, TAIWAN 0

Hajime Motegi hit a two-run homer to center with one out in the bottom of the ninth to give Tokyo a victory over Taoyuan, Taiwan.

The 13-year-old Motegi was so happy as he rounded the bases that he jumped into the arms of his third-base coach down the line before even reaching the plate.

Both teams flashed big-league defense and dominated from the mound. Japan and Taiwan pitching combined for 30 strikeouts.

AGUADULCE, PANAMA 8,  VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA 3

James Gonzalez had two homers and six RBI, and Aguadulce, Panama, beat Vancouver, British Columbia.

After leaving the bases loaded and having a run taken off the board in the first due to a runner leaving early, Panama broke out for six in the second. Carlos Flavio started the outburst with a solo homer. Edisson Gonzalez also had an RBI single before James Gonzalez hit a grand slam.

Panama pitching limited a Canada team that scored 13 runs in a win Friday over Mexico. Edisson Gonzalez and Daniel Cruz combined for 13 strikeouts.
