USA Is Hanging Tough
Talk about wild...Looking more like an ice hockey game than a baseball game...Team USA and China were beating each other up in their match up in yesterday's game, where the U.S. won 9 to 1. There were a couple of hard home plate collisions by the U.S. into the Chinese catcher, and a retalitory head hunting bean ball by China. With today's win versus Chinese Taipei, the U.S. only has Japan left before the semi-finals take place. U.S. is tied with Japan with 4 wins and 2 loses a piece. Japan routed China in today's game 10-0. South Korea seems unstopable with a perfect 6-0 record and Cuba has only lost one game (to Korea 7-4) giving them a record of 5-1. The competition remains fierce, but I have faith in our boys that they will pull off a medal...hopefully gold, but even a bronze would make me proud of our team!
