STEVENS, Penn. – Tony Mancha hurled a shutout as the USA Men’s National Team extended its winning streak to four by defeating Farmersville, 6-0, in the Rodney Fox Memorial Tournament, late Saturday, in the final game of round-robin play.

The right-hander allowed just two hits – one each by leadoff batter Yusef Davis and Steve Mullady – and then proceeded to handle the rest of Farmersville’s lineup by striking out 21 batters. Only one other batter reached base, a walk to James Gilbert in the fifth inning.

Wth the win, Team USA moves into Sunday’s playoffs as the No. 1 seed.

Mancha, a right-hander from Las Cruces, New Mexico, picked up his first win of the tournament, but he had plenty of support in getting it. Led by hot-hitting Eric Ochoa, Team USA roughed up Farmersville’s Jonas Mach for six runs on 12 hits.

Ochoa (2-for-3) hit his third home run of the tourney and drove in three runs, while Tyler Dudley had two RBI and was 2-for-4 at the plate with a homer.

As in their previous three games, Team USA started strong by plating three runs in the first inning on Ochoa’s three-run homer; picked up a run in the fourth on Derrick Zechman’s sacrifice fly, and pushed two runs across in the seventh when Dudley hammered a two-run homer deep over the left-field fence.

The USA Men’s National Team returns to action Sunday morning at 11, opponent yet to be determined.
