10/5 Team USA – UPDATE
Brett Jackson, playing for Team USA in Puerto Rico, came out of Monday’s game because of a sore heel as a precautionary measure. The U.S. squad used a 19-hit attack to beat Columbia, 13-6, on Monday and remained unbeaten at 3-0 in the Pan American Qualifying Tournament in Puerto Rico. Cubs prospect Chris Archer was to start Tuesday night for the U.S. squad against the Dominican Republic. Jackson, the Cubs’ No. 1 pick in 2009, has started three games, and was batting .667 (6-for-9) with six RBIs.
