in IBAF World Cup play Thursday in Turin, Italy.

The Red, White and Blue scored seven runs in the first inning of the contest, which was stopped after seven innings because of a 10-run mercy rule.

Former Durham Bull Jon Weber, Terry Tiffee and Lucas May each added home runs for the winners.

Todd Redmond (2-0) was the winning pitcher, striking out six while allowing three runs in six innings.

Alvarez (pictured) finished the game with six RBI. Weber went 3-for-4 with three RBI and three runs scored.

The USA's next game is against Australia today at 2 p.m. (EDT) in Piacenza, Italy, with Trevor Reckling (1-0) the scheduled starter.
