USA defeats Venezuela

An eight-run sixth inning propelled the United States over Venezuela 15-6 Sunday night in Toronto. The United States advances to the next round of competition, but still has one more game left in group play, facing the loser of the Canada/Italy game on Wednesday.

Mark DeRosa and Chris Iannetta each drove in four runs, and Adam Dunn, Kevin Youkilis and Ryan Braun all homered for the Americans.

Derek Jeter entered the game in the fifth inning and went 0-for-2 at the plate with a walk and a run scored.

Melvin Mora drove in two runs for the Venezuelans, who will face the winner of the Canada/Italy game in hopes of advancing past group play.
