Championship Saturday!
Chinese Taipei 2, San Diego, CA 1 FINAL!
Liu Yen Liang singled with one out in the eighth, then three of the next four batters drew walks off Spencer Weyman to score the game-winning run for Chinese Taipei.

Chi Ping Hung doubled and scored in top of the first. Ridge Deakman singled and scored in the bottom of the second to tie the game.

Starting pitchers Jonathan Meyer and Chang Yao Wen pitched seven innings and were replaced on the mound due to PONY pitching restriction rules. Chang got the win, Wu Huang the save. Weyman suffers the loss.

Chinese Taipei vs. San Diego, CA
The unbeaten teams in the 2005 World Series square off with the title on the line Saturday at 1 pm. Both teams won Division Championships Thursday night at Lew Hays PONY Field.

Chinese Taipei scored wins over Johnstown, PA, Caguas, PR and Corpus Christi, TX on the way to the finals. San Diego beat Chesapeake, VA twice and the host Washington, PA team to earn the finals berth.

Division Finals--Thursday
Chinese Taipei 7, Corpus Christi, TX 1
Liu Shih Hua hit a two-run double in the first and a two-run homerun in the third to lead unbeaten Chinese Taipei to the win and into the World Series championship game. Winning pitcher Chuan Chi limited Corpus Christi to three hits, all in the first inning. Corpus Christi had just one baserunner after the first, and that runner was erased on a caught stealing.

San Diego, CA 3, Chesapeake, VA 2
Three straight singles in the fifth broke a 1-1 tie, leading San Diego into the World Series championship game. Roman Ferriera drove home Ridge Deakman to make it 2-1, then scored the eventual game-winner. Kevin Zimmerman gets the victory, allowing just one hit over five innings. Jonathan Meyer worked the final two innings for the save. Jared Sivertson took the loss, allowing just four hits and retiring San Diego in order in five of the seven innings.

Division Elimination Games--Wednesday
Corpus Christi, TX 4, Caguas, PR 1
From a 16-12 shootout, to a tight, well-played 4-1 Corpus Christi victory in the elimination game. The Texans got a two-run homerun from O.J. Sanchez in the third to build a 4-0 lead. Caguas scored their only run of the game in the fourth on an error, a wild pitch and a ground out. Neither team seriously threatened after that. Andrew Cantu gets the complete game win, holding Caguas to two hits and striking out eight. Carlos Valentin takes the loss, allowing all four run in 2 2/3 innings.

Chesapeake, VA 18, Washington, PA 3 (5 inn)
A ten-run first inning led Chesapeake to the runaway win over the host team. Two homeruns in the frame for Jordan Long, tying two World Series records, paced the Virginians. Long later set the recrod with his eighth rbi of the game. Daniel Centeno got the win, working the first three innings.

Second Round Games--Tuesday
Chesapeake, VA 5, Evansville, IN 4 (8 inn.)--
Back-to-back doubles in the top of the eighth led Chesapeake to the 5-4 extra inning win. Jason Parker led off the inning, then scored on Daniel Centeno's double. Jared Sivertson got the win in relief, allowing one run and two hits over three innings.

San Diego, CA 5, Washington, PA 1--A two--run first inning proved to be enough to lead the West Zone champions into Thursday's Division Championship game. Jonathan Lopez reached on an error and scored on a groundout in the first. Jonathan Meyer followed a batter later with a solo homerun. Spencer Weyman (1-0) held Washington to three hits to get the win, striking out eleven. Evan Bukowski (1-1) took the loss and hit a solo homerun in the sixth.

Second Round Games--Monday
Corpus Christi, TX 5, Johnstown, PA 3--
It was missed opportunities that put Johnstown in this elimination game. It is missed opportunites that knocked Johnstown out of the 2005 PONY League World Series. Trailing 5-2 in the sixth, Johnstown loaded the bases with no outs, but settled for only one run, and never threatened again. Corpus Christi's Thomas Ayala got the win, working four innings.

Chinese Taipei 9, Caguas, PR 4
Chinese Taipei scored four times in the fifth to break open a tie game, moving past Caguas and into Thursday's division championship game. Wu Huang gets the win in relief, his second of the series, pitching 2 1/3 scoreless innings. Caguas committed five errors in the game and drops into Wednesday's elimination game.

Opening Round Games--Sunday
San Diego, CA 11, Chesapeake, VA 4--
Seven different players with runs batted in led San Diego to the win over the East Zone champions. Winning pitcher Jonathan Meyer and Parker Hipp each had three rbi. Meyer held Chesapeake to three hits while striking out seven over the first four innings.

Washington, PA 4, Evansville, IN 3--Winning pitcher Evan Bukowski held Evansville to just three hits and struck out 11, drove in a run and scored another in the bottom of the sixth. Sean McKnight singled home Eric Poland later in the inning to make it 4-2. Two errors allowed Evansville to have a shot, but Brandon Ford was thrown out trying to steal home, ending the game. Bukowski faced just three batters over the minimum.

Opening Round Games--Saturday
Caguas, PR 16, Corpus Christi, TX 12--Miguel Pagan hit a three-run home run in the top of the first and Pedro Perez added a three-run shot in the top of the seventh as the Caguas, PR won the opening game of the World Series. Pagan scored five runs in the game, setting a new PONY World Series record. Carlos Santana picked up the win, working the final two innings. O.J. Sanchez took the loss for Corpus Christi.

Chinese Taipei 5, Johnstown, PA 4 (8 inn)--In a last-at-bat win, Yu Sheng Pu scored in the bottom of the eighth to lead the Asia-Pacific Zone champions into Monday's winners' bracket game. Johnstown scored four unearned runs in the third, but Taiwan plated four of their own over the fourth and fifth innings to force the extra frame.

Wu Huang pitched 5 1/3 innings to get the win, holding Johnstown scoreless on just one hit. Garrett Berky takes the loss in relief of Carter Lehman who had to leave the mound after seven innings of work.
