Saturday, Mexico and Japan will play for the international championship title at the 2013 Little League World Series of Baseball (LLWS). These two teams have already played once during the 2013 LLWS games and Japan won that game, but Mexico has come back strong after that loss and should be considered a strong contender.
During Mexico’s first two games at this LLWS they did not allow a run to be scored and they won both games with the 10-run rule. To read about the last time these two teams played each other, click here.
