Some consolation for Texas in beating Mexico

SOUTH WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. -- Isaac Garcia hit a three-run homer in the sixth inning to help Pearland, Texas, beat Mexicali, Baja California, Mexico, 6-4 in Sunday's consolation game of the Little League World Series.

Jarrett Tadlock, who got the win in relief of Garcia, struck out Raul Leon with two on and two outs in the bottom of the sixth to end the game.

Leon hit his third and fourth home runs of the tournament in his first two at-bats. Gerardo Lujano also homered for Mexico.

Raffi Gross had a two-run homer for Texas, which managed just four hits off Mexican pitchers Jose Reyes and Lujano.

This was Pearland's third appearance in the Little League World Series since 2010 and Mexicali's fourth since 2005.

Japan came back from an eight-run first-inning deficit to defeat Pennsylvania and win the World Series championship.
