Mexico overpowers Panama at LLWS

Posted: Updated:

SOUTH WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. (AP) — Ramon Mendoza hit two of Tijuana, Mexico's five home runs in a 13-0 four-inning win over Aguadulce, Panama, on Sunday in the winners' bracket of the Little League World Series.

The game was stopped because of Little League's 10-run rule.

Mexico is one win away from the international championship game and will be off until Wednesday. Panama dropped into the losers' bracket.

Brandon Montes homered on the fifth pitch of the game, and Mexico broke open the game with a five-run second inning — keyed by Mendoza's grand slam.

Martin Gonzalez and Saul Favela homered in the third inning as Mexico extended its lead to 10-0.

Mendoza's second homer of the game, this time a two-run blast, capped the scoring in the fourth. Mendoza finished the game with six RBIs.

Luis Manzo tossed a one-hitter for the victory. He struck out three, walked one and hit three batters.

Jean Mar Sanchez had the lone hit for Panama, a single to open the first inning.
