Team USA definitely showed how to bounce back on Friday in baseball's World Cup.

Todd Redmond (pictured) started off with six perfect innings and got homers from four teammates as the Red, White and Blue walloped host Germany 9-1 in Regensburg. The win came a day after Venezuela had pulled off a 13-9 upset of the USA in 11 innings.

Ike Davis' homer in the second jump-started the USA offense, which poured three more runs onto Tim Henkenjohann - who had defeated the college-level National Team at the World Baseball Challenge - in the third.

Buck Coats added a two-run homer in the sixth, Justin Smoak another in the seventh and Trevor Plouffe yet another in the eighth.

Redmond got through eight innings, giving up two hits and striking out seven. Former Durham Bull Jason Childers gave up the only German run in the ninth.

Team USA will face China (0-2) today in its final game of pool play. The next round begins Sunday in Italy and The Netherlands.
