One team from the qualifier will join Australia, Canada, China, Chinese Taipei, Japan, the Netherlands, and the United States in Beijing, China next year.

    Puerto Rico began the qualifier with a 4-3 win over Cuba in eight innings Sunday afternoon. This marked Puerto Rico's first win over Cuba in nine years. Hernandez was 0-for-2 with a walk and a run scored.
