League (1-0) fanned 11 and did not allow more than one batter to reach base in any inning. League did not walk a hitter in the game and limited China (2-1) to two singles.
"(Catcher Tony) Richie told me that my fastball was really moving out there," League said.
"I was able to get ahead with that and then used my slider to get the strikeouts. It felt really awesome to stretch out and pitch a game like this."
