George Springer (Connecticut) and Nick Ramirez (Cal State Fullerton) hit back to back homers in the 5th to end the game.

Other good games were turned in by Mikie Mahtook (LSU) who went 3-3 with 3 RBI, and Ryan Wright (Louisville) who was 2-3 with a double, a stolen base and 2 RBI.

The World University Games feature two brackets each of four teams. All four teams from the pool will advance to the knockout round.
