Rick Hague of Rice (pictured) had three hits including a pair of doubles with three RBI, leading a 19-hit attack as Team USA blasted Canada 8-1 at Durham Bulls Athletic Park.

Friday night's win gave the USA victories in the first two games of the five-game set, which began with a 12-4 victory on Thursday night at the National Training Complex in Cary.

The NTC was also the site Friday of the fourth day of the 18U Tournament of Stars, which will see crossover action today.

Team USA will have a special guest manager for tonight's 7:05 p.m. National Team contest against Canada, as "Trader Jack" McKeon - former manager of the Florida Marlins, Cincinnati Reds, San Diego Padres, Oakland A's and Kansas City Royals - will be running the show.

Gerrit Cole of UCLA was the winning pitcher in Friday's game, striking out 12 against one walk and allowing just three hits in 6 2/3 shutout innings.

Florida State's Tyler Holt had three hits including a double and scored three runs from the leadoff spot.
