Cole leads Team USA past Chinese Taipei


UCLA rising junior right-hander Gerrit Cole allowed one run (unearned) and two hits through four pre-determined innings to earn his second victory in as many starts this summer, leading the USA Baseball Collegiate National Team past Chinese Taipei, 6-3, at Hsinchuang Field on Tuesday.

Cole (2-0) struck out four batters and issued two walks in this third appearance – his second start – of the summer. He improved his career record to 6-0 with Team USA. The right-hander from Santa Ana, Calif., has logged a 0.75 ERA, totaling 13 strikeouts and two walks in 12.0 innings for the Collegiate National Team in 2010.

In Team USA’s 6-3 win over Chinese Taipei, catcher Pete O’Brien (Bethune Cookman) belted his fourth home run of the summer and drove in two runs, going 2-for-4 with one run. O’Brien’s fielder’s choice RBI in the fourth inning broke a 1-1 tie, as Team USA led the rest of the way.

Pomee officially uncommitted to UCLA

The saga of Junior Pomee continues.
The Rancho Verde tight end – profile here – who verbally committed to UCLA on July 1 after almost doing the same to Arizona, was wowed by his recent attendance at Florida’s camp, and is now very high on the Gators.
I spoke with him for a few moments yesterday, but he was just getting home from the funeral of a teammate, and I wasn’t going to push for answers. I’ll try to reach him again tonight.

To be honest, I think this is a case of a kid being allured by the hoopla and attention, and the buzz on Pomee has certainly soared. He went from legit offers from Idaho and Nevada to being courted by Florida. We’ll see how it all works out, but I wouldn’t write him off just yet.

*Special props to Bruinbeatch, who called this basically the day after Pomee verbally committed to UCLA.

*I took out the reference to Uko’s dad, which was supposed to be Uko’s coach, a reference to a failed interview attempt last November with a few blog readers. My apologies.
