2011 Baseball World Cup – USA vs Chinese Taipei

PANAMA – The USA bounced back after a disappointed 10 inning defeat to Puerto Rico to down Chinese Taipei 15-1 in a 7 inning match on Tuesday in front of  a crowd of 1700.

U.S.A………………… 001 724 1 – 15 12 0 (1-1)
CHINESE TAIPEI…… 001 000 0 – 1 6 3 (0-3)

The game was close for 3 innings with the score tied at 1, then the USA blew the game open with a 7 run 4th inning. Tacking on 6 more runs over the 5th and 6th really put the game out of reach. The USA used the long ball hitting 4 in the game off of Chinese Taipei pitching.

Matt Clark and Jordy Mercer were both 3-for-3 with 3 RBI, 3 runs scored, and a home run. Thomas Mendonca chipped in 2 RBI and a round tripper, while Allen Pollack drove in 3 as well with a home run.

Andy Van Hekken went 6 innings giving up 1 run on 4 hits to pick up the win. Kuan Ju Chen didn’t fair as well going only 3.2 innings giving up 5 runs to take the loss.

The win pushes the US record to 1-1 while dropping the Chinese Taipei to 0-3.

Next up for the USA is Japan on Wednesday to make up for the rained out game on Sunday.

Chinese Taipei will look for their first win against Canada on Thursday.
