Taipei, Aug. 6 (CNA) A Taiwanese team defended its Palomino League World Series title Monday with a 10-0 shutout victory over Puerto Rico in Laredo, Texas.

Taiwanese starter Lee Chen-hsun (李晨薰) allowed one hit and struck out eight in shutting down Puerto Rico's Guaynabo for a complete-game victory in a contest that was called after five innings because Taiwan had a 10-run lead.

Taiwan's team, represented by players from Taoyuan Municipal Ping-Jen Senior High School, took an early lead with a run in the first inning.

The Puerto Ricans, who needed a 5-4 win against a team from Youngstown, Ohio, in the morning to qualify for the final, tried to pull even after getting their only hit in the bottom of the inning.
