USA Collegiate team beats Canada, 8-1


The United States Collegiate National baseball team clinched the top seed out of Group A Monday with an 8-1 victory over previously undefeated Canada at the V FISU World University Championships at Tokyo's Yokohama Stadium.

Connecticut's Matt Barnes held the Canadians scoreless through seven innings, tossing a three-hitter and did not allow a runner to reach second base. He struck out eight as Team USA improved its overall record to 14-2 on the summer.

The Americans meet China in Tuesday's quarterfinal contest.

Vanderbilt's Jason Esposito extended his hitting streak to eight games when he hit his first home run of the summer to left field, giving USA a 7-0 lead in the eighth. He's hitting .556 (5-for-9) over the first three games of pool play.

Louisville's Ryan Wright is 8-for-14 (.571) with six runs scored and four RBI for the Americans in the championships.
