SOUTH WILLIAMSPORT, Pennsylvania — Mexico scored nine runs in the first inning to eliminate Australia from the Little League World Series, winning 14-3 in four innings on Monday.

Gerardo Lujano and Andres Villa each hit 2-run doubles in the first inning. Damian Garcia, Jorge Armenta and Alberto Bustos added home runs for Mexicali, which advances to play Tuesday vs. the winner of Monday's game between Taiwan and Uganda.

Armenta finished 3 for 3 with 4 RBIs. Garcia was 2 for 2. Derik Lopez and Gerardo Lujano scored twice each. Mexicali scored at least once in each inning to end the game via the 10-run mercy rule.

Blake Cavill was 2 for 2 with an RBI for Sydney, which finished 1-2 in Australia's third year as its own region in the series. A team from Perth won the nation's first LLWS game in 2014.
