U.S. wins World Cup opener

Former Biscuits outfielder Justin Ruggiano scored the first run and Monroeville's Chris Booker picked up the save in the United States' 3-0 win over Mexico today in the IBF World Cup in Taiwan.

Ruggiano was hit by a pitch with two outs in the fifth and, after a single and walk, scored on a wild pitch. Russell County's Colby Rasmus walked before Jayson Nix hit a two-run single.

Rasmus finished 2-for-4 and Evan Longoria 1-for-4.

The Americans face Panama on Thursday.
