Team USA made up of college all-stars beat a Japan team of college all-stars 4-1 Wednesday night at Rosenblatt Stadium. Japan manager Takasi Kodama said his team had never seen a pitcher like UCLA’s Gerrit Cole who went six innings, allowing six hits and striking out seven to pick up the win. Japan scored its only run in the fourth.
Drew Maggi, an infielder from Arizona State led the offense as he tripled, doubled, walked twice and drove in a run with a sacrifice fly. Maggi was hitting .091 in Team USA’s first eight wins.
