Taipei, July 29 (CNA) Taiwan overwhelmed Czech Republic 16-0 in a Group A game at the U-12 Baseball World Cup in Tainan on Monday, improving its record to 3-1 in initial round robin play.

Taiwan opened the tournament Friday with a win over powerhouse Cuba and followed that with a victory over South Africa before losing to Japan on Sunday.

On Monday, the game was called after five innings because Taiwan had a lead of more than 10 runs.

A group of four Taiwanese pitchers — starter Kuo Chen-an (郭辰安) and relievers Chen Yu-an (陳昱安), Chang Yao-yun (張耀允) and Yu Yan-cheng (余硯誠) — combined to whitewash the Czechs, who entered the game with a 2-1 record after defeating Fiji and South Africa.
