Brody Dull and Aspen Anderson combined to give up just four hits, two walks and a run while striking out seven, with Anderson earning the win.

Pennsylvania now awaits the winner of the matchup between the Midwest team and the loser of the West vs. Southwest matchup.


Asia-Pacific 7, Panama 0

Liao Yuan-Shu was wheeling and dealing, and the offense behind him provided plenty of support.

The Chinese Taipei pitcher threw 5.2 innings of scoreless, four-hit ball, striking out eight en route to a 7-0 victory over Panama on Monday.

The team from the Asia-Pacific region blew open the game in the top of the third, pushing across four runs, led by Wang Yuan-Fu's two-run single.

It was one of three RBI on the day for Chinese Taipei's cleanup hitter.

The Asia-Pacific representatives now await the winner of Canada vs. Mexico on the international side of the bracket.


Southeast 5, Great Lakes 2

It took extra inningsโ€”and a crucial defensive play to even get it thereโ€”but the team from Tennessee marched on.

The representatives from the Southeast beat Great Lakes on Monday, 5-2, led by a three-run top of the seventh inning.

Jack Rhodes' single started the scoring in the crucial inning, while Bo Daniel's triple and a fielder's choice accounted for the three runs. Rhodes then closed out the game with a perfect bottom of the seventh on the mound.

All is not lost for the team from Indiana, which is still alive and will face Mid-Atlantic to keep its Williamsport hopes alive. Tennessee, meanwhile, awaits the winner of the West vs. Southwest matchup.
