USA Baseball's World Cup team got off to a good start, holding off Canada 6-4 in the first of a four-game exhibition series at Coleman Field in Cary.

Jason Castro led the way with two hits and two runs scored for the Red, White and Blue.

The hosts put up three runs in the second off Nick Bucci, as Tug Hulett smacked a two-run double and Buck Coats a sacrifice fly.

Canada tied it in the third on an RBI infield hit from Rene Tosoni and a two-run double from Shawn Brown, then went up 4-3 on an Adam Loewen single in the fourth.

The Americans responded with two runs in the fifth on a Terry Tiffee grounder and a Josh Kroeger single, and added their last run in the sixth on a double-play ball.

Lucas Harrell was the winning pitcher in relief, while former Durham Bulls Cedrick Bowers and Jason Childers (pictured) each fired a hitless relief inning.

Game 2 is tonight at 6:30, with Brad Lincoln on the hill for Team USA.
