USA Baseball Downs Japan, Will Play Cuba for Gold

The US college national team advanced to their 4th straight gold medal game at the World University Championships by defeating Japan 4-2. George Springer (Connecticut) hit a first inning grand slam to give righthander Sonny Gray (Vanderbilt) all the runs he would need. Gray allowed 3 hits over 7 innings, while striking out 6 and allowing his first 2 runs of the entire summer (only one earned).

The US will now take on Cuba, who defeated Korea 11-1 in the semis. The Cubans have outscored their opponents 70-6 over the course of the tournament.
