Irvine, California, Aug. 14 (CNA) The Taiwanese team cruised past the more highly ranked Puerto Rican team 9-1 in the super round of the U-19 Women's Softball World Cup Wednesday, putting it on track for a spot in the medal round.
The sixth-ranked Taiwanese team, whose offense impressed with 15 hits, recovered from a 0-9 defeat by Japan a day earlier to beat fourth-ranked Puerto Rico in a six-inning game called short by the mercy rule.
The Taiwanese team opened up the scoring in the second inning when right fielder Wu Yu-hsin (吳羽昕) sent a deep fly off the wall in right field and turned it in a three-run inside the park.
The team went on breaking the score open and ran away with the match with its high-powered offense, scoring three runs in both the third and sixth inning. [FULL STORY]
