Sunday, the Mexico team shut-out the Panama team 13-0 at the Little League World Series (LLWS) of Baseball and the game ended at the end of the 4th inning because of the 10-run rule. If any team is 10 or more runs above another team at the end of the 4th inning…then the game ends. Mexico had quite a few home runs during both of their games so far during the series.
