Matt LaPorta knocked China's catcher out of the game, Zheng Xu sent LaPorta to a hospital with a beanball, China manager Jim Lefebvre was ejected, Yang Yang hit a symbolic moonshot off Blaine Neal to break up the shutout, and the Americans stayed on semifinal pace with a 9-1 victory.

Laynce Nix's brother Jayson (y Mrs. Nix, y?) was earlier drilled in the face by Cuba. I tell you people, the Red Menace is upon us!
