Todd Redmond pitched five perfect innings and his teammates held on as Team USA took a 6-5 exhibition victory over Canada on Saturday at Cary's Coleman Field.

The teams are preparing for the World Cup, to be held in The Netherlands, Italy and Germany later this month.

Terry Tiffee went 2-for-4 with two RBI to lead the U.S. offense.

The Red, White and Blue took a 3-0 lead off Chris Begg in the first on RBI from Justin Smoak, Tiffee and Pedro Alvarez.

Lucas May added a homer in the second for a 4-0 lead, which went to 6-0 on RBI singles from Tiffee and Josh Kroeger in the third.

Canada rallied for five runs before former Durham Bull Jason Childers  (pictured) came on for a shutout ninth and his first save of the series.

The USA will go for a four-game sweep of the series today at 5 p.m. with Cory Luebke on the hill.
