U.S. Wins WBC Debut

Jake Peavy and a parade of relievers combined on a four-hitter against a lineup loaded with major leaguers Tuesday, leading the United States to a 2-0 victory over Mexico in its World Baseball Classic debut.

Home runs by Derrek Lee and Chipper Jones were all that was necessary on offense.
"Today I felt proud," Lee said. "I felt like the whole country was watching."

I don’t know about the whole country but I was watching. I have to admit that the WBC has been slow but interest will grow now that the U.S. team has started playing.
