The U.S. Olympic baseball team bounced back with a 7-0 victory over the Netherlands on Thursday after losing its opening game 8-7 against Korea.

The game was shortened due to rain with the teams unable to complete the bottom of the ninth inning at Wukesong Field 2.

Steven Strasburg (San Diego, Calif.) hurled seven scoreless innings and did not allow a hit until the seventh inning. Matt LaPorta (Port Charlotte, Fla.) tallied a three-run homer and Matt Brown (Bellevue, Wash.) added a solo shot as well to pace the offensive attack.

Team USA returns to action on Friday morning vs. Cuba, with first pitch scheduled for 11:30 am at the Wukesong Main Field.
