SOUTH WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. (AP) — Jared Cruz and Jacob Garza hit back-to-back home runs to key a five-run third-inning in leading Corpus Christi, Texas, to a 5-2 win over Perth, Australia, in a consolation game at the Little League World Series on Monday.

Cruz hit a three-run shot to give Corpus Christi a 4-2 lead, and Garza followed with a solo home run to center.

It was the final game for both teams, which had been eliminated from contention after losing their first two games.

Perth at least finished its first series appearance on a bright note by scoring its first runs of the tournament. They came on Jake Sheldon’s two-run double in the top of the third.

The Australians had previously been shut out, 12-0 to Mexico and 4-0 to Puerto Rico.
