Omaha, Neb. – In its final tune-up game before heading overseas to Taiwan and Japan, Team USA defeated the Strike Zone of Omaha 16-0 in seven innings Thursday afternoon at Warrior Field. Peter O’Brien (Bethune-Cookman) hit a pair of home runs and Alex Dickerson (Indiana) added a round-tripper of his own as both players recorded a team-best four RBI. With the win Team USA improves to 9-0 on the summer.
From the beginning the Strike Zone squad seemed to be overmatched as the Collegiate National Team (CNT) scored eight runs over the first three innings, plating three in the first, five in the second and two in the third. Dickerson put USA on the board when he drew a bases loaded walk that scored Drew Maggi (Arizona State) who doubled to start the game. On the very next pitch, George Springer (Connecticut) laced a two-RBI single through the left side pushing across Brad Miller (Clemson) and Ryan Wright (Louisville) for a 3-0 lead.
