Braun leads USA to victory in World Baseball Classic
Milwaukee Brewers left-fielder Ryan Braun had two singles and scored twice Tuesday night as the U.S. crushed Puerto Rico 7-1 in the second round of the World Baseball Classic.
Braun helped set the tone when he walked in the first inning and then hustled home on a double by Joe Mauer to the wall in left center.
Brewers catcher Martin Maldonado played first base for the Puerto Ricans. He went 0 for 2 with a pair of strikeouts.
