10/4 Team USA update

Cubs Minor League outfielder Brett Jackson went 3-for-4, including a three-run homer in the sixth, to help Team USA beat Puerto Rico, 7-4, on Saturday in the opening game of the COPABE Pan Am Qualifying tournament. The U.S. team is trying to qualify for the 2011 Pan Am Games.

On Sunday, Jackson had a pair of RBI singles as Team USA blanked Aruba, 14-0, in seven innings. With the win, the U.S. squad improved to 2-0 and will face Columbia Monday. Jackson, the Cubs’ No. 1 Draft pick in 2009, led Team USA with a .545 batting average in training camp in Cary, N.C.
