Cuba Pounds U.S. For Spot In Gold Medal Game
They may be older than they've been in the past, and they don't have a wave of young pitching to replace their veteran stars. But on Friday, Cuba showed once again that when it comes to Olympic baseball, they're still the team to beat. Never was that more clear than Friday morning. With a spot in the gold medal game on the line, Cuba routed Team USA 10-2 in a game that was just as lopsided as the score indicates. Cuba has played in the gold medal game of every official Olympics tournament, and will be playing for its fourth gold in five tries.
