It’s two from two for the Temperzone Junior Black Sox softball team at the Junior Men's World Championships title in Whitehorse, Yukon, Canada. After dispatching Australia comfortably in game one the Junior Black Sox have scored a 4-1 victory over the United States on day two of the tournament.

Wellington’s Te Kahui Bishop was again strong with the bat hitting another automatic home run while captain Vincent Harris from Waikato also proved consistent with the bat.

Ethan Johnston from Canterbury pitched the whole game as the team staged a solid, but not spectacular victory.

"The boys are on a high, but still kept to their job and approached the game well," said team manager Wayne Small. "Josh pitched the entire game and had a couple of patchy periods where he got himself into trouble but got himself out of it with some good work. The coaches, Thomas (Makea) and Jarrad (Martin) keep wanting more as there was a couple of errors in the field, but in reality the team is looking real promising."

Tomorrow the Junior Black Sox play Denmark at 5pm local time (midday NZ time). Live streamed coverage of all games can be seen at
