Blue Jays Rally In Ninth, Top Team USA

Blue Jays first base prospect Brian Dopirak drove in three runs in two at-bats, including a walk-off two-run single off Team USA reliever J. J. Putz to lead the Blue Jays to victory 6-5.

Jimmy Rollins had a two-run double for Team USA in their four-run eighth inning that put the team up 3-2. Catcher Brian McCann also had a double and scored a run. Ryan Braun added an RBI single to make it 4-2 in the inning.

Blue Jay outfield hopeful Travis Snider had three singles and a run scored. Catcher Kyle Phillips added two hits and a run scored himself.

Ted Lilly started for Team USA and allowed one run in four innings of work. Brad Mills and Matt Clement of the Blue Jays held Team USA to just one earned run (off of Mills) in two three-inning stints each. Team USA battered Blue Jay pitcher Reid Santos for their last four runs.

Scot Shields and J. P. Howell had scoreless innings for Team USA. LaTroy Hawkins and Joel Hanrahan, late additions to the team, allowed one run apiece in their innings of work.

Team USA's final tune-up game will be against the Phillies tomorrow.
