SOUTH WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. -- Ronny Medina hit a grand slam in the fifth inning Saturday, putting an early end to Venezuela's 10-0 win over Canada at the Little League World Series.

Cesar Leonardo Vivas drove in three runs for the winners from Maracaibo, Venezuela. After striking out in his first at-bat, Vivas singled home Asnaldo Caicedo in the third, with Julio Rejon also scoring on the play because of an overthrow.

Vivas added a two-run single the next inning for a five-run lead.

Medina's slam put the mercy rule into effect.

Jose Luis Atencio allowed two hits in 4 2-3 innings and struck out six against the team from Vancouver, British Columbia.

Venezuela next plays Monday against the South Korea-Puerto Rico winner.
