Americans hit five home runs, drub Spain

Former Jacksonville Sun Andy LaRoche homered twice, while former Biscuit Evan Longoria and Russell County High's Colby Rasmus also added circuit clouts in Team USA's 12-2 win over Spain today.

The Americans (4-1), who hit five home runs, take Monday off and engage South Africa on Tuesday at the IBF World Cup in Taiwan.

Rasmus' three-run, inside-the-park home run highlighted Team USA's game-ending, seven-run seventh. LaRoche and Longoria also hit two-run homers in the seventh. LaRoche also had a two-run shot in the first.

Former Biscuits shortstop Nestor Perez was 0-for-2 for the Spanish.
