Taipei, Aug. 6 (CNA) An U-12 Taiwanese baseball team made 11 hits, including two home runs, on the way to defeating Mexico 10-4 Tuesday to win the PONY Bronco World Series for the second consecutive year.

The Taiwanese team, comprised mostly of players from Beinan Elementary School (卑南國小) in eastern Taitung County, opened up the scoring in the first inning with a double and a triple.
