Team USA bounced back Tuesday night.

The Citadel's Asher Wojciechowski struck out nine in seven innings and Arizona State's Matt Newman (pictured) stole home as USA Baseball's National Team walloped the Bahamas 8-1 in the World Baseball Challenge in Prince George, British Columbia.

The win, which improved the Americans to 2-1 in the event, came one day after they had dropped a 6-3 loss to Germany.

Desmond Russell pitched a complete game for the Bahamians, giving up rallies to the USA both early and late. Hawaii's Kolten Wong hit an RBI double in the first and then Newman (Arizona State) stole home in the second for a 2-0 lead.

The Bahamians scored their run in the third on a Raymond Grant single.

The USA scored twice in the sixth on a ground out and a wild pitch, then had the knockout rally with four in the second on sacrifice flies from Tennessee's Blake Forsythe and Rice's Rick Hague before Florida State's Tyler Holt ripped an RBI double.

Team USA's next game is on Wednesday night at 10 p.m. (EDT) against the host Prince George Axemen, with Vanderbilt's Sonny Gray getting the start.
