Cuba goes for gold once again

Cuba goes for gold once again

The Cuban baseball team will go for gold once again, having beaten the United States 10-2 to reach the Olympic championship game.
Alexei Bell hit a three-run homer in the eighth to put the punctuation mark on the defending champions' 10-2 victory over the Americans on Friday night that put the Cubans in the title game again. He raised his hand to signal No. 1 while rounding the bases, then Ariel Pestano added his own three-run shot three batters later to seal it.
Cuba (7-1) will play unbeaten South Korea (8-0) on Saturday, while the U.S. will face Japan for bronze in the first game of the day. South Korea rallied to beat the Japanese 6-2 in Friday's first semifinal.
