Mexico boots Puerto Rico from LLWS
SOUTH WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. — Nuevo Laredo, Mexico has eliminated Manati, Puerto Rico from the Little League World Series after a 4-2 win Monday, though the evening games were cancelled because of rain.
Little League was able to get two other games in earlier Monday, including Kaoshiung, Taiwan’s 23-0 rout of Vancouver, British Columbia. Ramstein Air Force Base, Germany beat Plymouth, Minn., 2-1, in a consolation game.
The game between Ohio and Georgia was called off with one out in the bottom of the first, but Little League rules state those stats will be erased and the game restarted because it did not go at least 3 1-2 innings.
Connecticut and Washington never got started Monday night. Little League has not announced when those games will be played Tuesday.
