USA Baseball Update

It took 11 innings, but the college national team was able to down Chinese Taipei 8-7. The game lasted just under 4 hours, and was ended by a Nick Ramirez (Cal State Fullerton) walk-off single. Each team scored a run in the 10th, as the IBAF rules stipulate that in extra innings runners are placed on first and second to begin the inning.

Gerrit Cole (UCLA) struck out 8 over 6 innings, and gave up just 1 run, but it was Brian Johnson (Florida) who got the win in relief. The collegians face Canada tomorrow.

In other USA Baseball news, the U-18 team beat the Netherlands 18-2 to finish the World Championships with a tournament best 7-1 record. The team went 19-2 over the summer.
