Wright, Gio lead USA

By  | 

UNDATED (AP) - David Wright had five RBIs and Gio Gonzalez tossed five shutout innings as Team USA whipped Puerto Rico in the World Baseball Classic. Wright put the game out of reach with a three-run double in the eighth, leaving him 7-for-16 with 10 RBIs in four games. The Americans will play Thursday night against the Dominican Republic, which remained unbeaten in the WBC by rallying past Italy 5-4 on Tuesday.

Tuesday's other games had the Dominican Republic beating Italy 5-4 and Japan outscoring the Netherlands 10-6.
