Taiwan joins Japan, Puerto Rico in LLWS field

A team from Kaohsiung, Taiwan is the third squad to advance to the Little League World Series after a pitcher tossed a no-hitter in the Asia-Pacific Region championship game.
Wei-Chih Chen also had two hits and an RBI in the 10-0 shutout of the Philippines on Thursday. The Taiwan team comes from the Fu-Hsing Little League, which won the World Series title in 1996.
Squads from Tokyo, Japan and Manati, Puerto Rico have already qualified for the 16-team field. Five more international berths are still at stake.
The eight U.S. berths will be decided in August. The World Series starts on Aug. 20 in South Williamsport.
