The Team USA 18U squad wrapped up pool play Wednesday morning with a dominating win over France, 16-0. The U.S. scored 16 runs on 15 hits, five of which were home runs. Tony Wolters, Bubba Starling, Brian Ragira, Michael Lorenzen and Lance McCullers Jr. all went deep. McCullers' shot was a grand slam in the fifth and final inning. Lefthander Daniel Camarena got the start and allowed just two hits while striking out four in five innings of work.
On Tuesday, the U.S. beat Venezuela in a slugfest, 14-7. First baseman Blake Swihart led the charge, going 3-for-6 with two doubles, a home run and four RBIs.
Team USA is the only 5-0 team in the tournament and won Pool A. The U.S. will play the fourth-place team from Pool B, but it remains to be seen which team that will be. Games are to be completed Wednesday night.
