AP – American pitchers allowed seven scattered hits and Jayson Nix had two RBIs including a solo home run as the United States defeated Cuba 6-3 Sunday to win the Baseball World Cup in Taiwan.
The U.S. took command of the game in the second inning when Jason Jaramillo singled in a run, and Cuban starter Yadel Carrillo walked in two successive batters with the bases loaded to stretch the American lead to 3-0.
Jaramillio singled in his second run in the third, and in the next inning Nix homered to put the U.S. ahead 5-0.
Cuba cut the lead to 5-2 on Alfredo Rodriguez’s two-run single with two out in the fifth, but in the seventh Justin Ruggiano singled home a run to bring the score up to 6-2.
Alexander Kerr’s RBI single in the eighth cut the margin to 6-3 but reliever Jeff Stevens shut the Cubans down in the ninth to end the game.
American starter Brian Duensing looked strong until giving up Rodriguez’s two-run single in the fifth, but Steve Shell headed a trio of American relievers in neutralizing the normally potent Cuban offense over the remaining four innings to seal the victory.
