3-Nations Cup Scores

July 4, 2008

Saskatoon, SK


11:06 in bottom of the 6th inning Japan now leads the U.S. 8-0.
 
 
In game one of the 3 Nations Challenge in front of 1800 fans, Canada defeated the U.S. 4- 2. Canada never had more than 4 hitters bat in any inning as the managed only four hits off pitchers Sean Kelly (5 innings) and Cody Thomsosn who pitched the 6th and 7th. They certainly made the most of those hits as Ryan Wolfe lead the game off with a deep home run to left field and hit another in the 5th with two aboard. Wolfe finished the game 2 for 3 with 4 RBI and 2 runs scored. Canadian starter Frank Cox gave up the American's only run after an error advanced Blake Miller to third following his walk. He was scored on a fielder’s choice that got caught up in first baseman Derek Mayson's glove forcing him to take the out at first. Nick Underhill shut out the U.S in the last two innings giving up 2 of the American 5 hits. The Americans played solid defense turning two double plays.
