U-12 Baseball World Cup: USA wins placement round

The Czech Republic secured eighth place with their fourth win in the tournament. The USA proved to be no match for any National Team in the round. Italy also had a winning record (3-2) and finished ninth

Four games were played in the last day of the placement round of the U-12 Baseball World Cup.

The USA completed in four innings the game that had been postponed on Friday and beat, 15-0, the Czech Republic. The USA will win the placement round and finish seventh overall.

The USA wasted no time in getting to starter Jan Novak and scored nine in the top of the first.
Designated hitter Dillon Adkins hit a three-run homer and third baseman Lucas Tinajero walked in the first at-bat and then launched a two-run home run in his second at-bat of the inning.

After the USA added two more runs in the top of the second, the game was delayed for two hours because of a heavy thunderstorm and then postponed.

As the game resumed, with two outs in the top of the third, the USA scored four runs against Filip Hedl on a three-run homer by left fielder Rashad Hayes and a double by catcher Jaiden Lo Re.

The USA finished seventh, the Czech Republic eighth in the placement round
