Japan beats Nevada 5-0 in Little League consolation

SOUTH WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. – Takuma Takahashi struck out 11 and homered to help Japan silence Las Vegas’ hot bats and win 5-0 in the Little League World Series’ third-place game Sunday.

Takahashi (2-0) never allowed a runner past first base and Las Vegas was held to three hits after scoring 38 runs in four games.

Ren Takeuchi homered right after Takahashi did in the fourth, and Japan tacked on another two runs in the bottom of the fifth before Takahashi struck out the side in the sixth to end it.
