Maybe it was the managerial skills of "Trader Jack" McKeon that inspired a Red, White and Blue comeback on Saturday night at Durham Bulls Athletic Park.

Canada burst out to a 5-0 lead after half an inning, but the USA National Team pounded out 14 hits to claim a 14-5 victory and win its third straight to start the five-game series. Florida State's Tyler Holt (pictured) reached safely six times with three hits including a pair of doubles with two RBI.

It was also another big day at the 18U Tournament of Stars at the National Training Complex in Cary, as uberprospect Bryce Harper and his American Legion team advanced to today's 4 p.m. title game against the Babe Ruth team.

In the National Team's win, Cal State-Fullerton's Christian Colon had two hits including a triple with two RBI, while Rice's Rick Hague added two hits including a double with two RBI.

T.J. Walz of Kansas got the win in relief, tallying nine strikeouts and allowing only one hit.

Cody Wheeler of Coastal Carolina is scheduled to pitch for the USA in Game 4 today at 5:05 at DBAP.
