Abbott makes final cut on national team / July 15, 2019
Andrew Abbott made the final cut for the National Collegiate team as USA baseball headed for Japan.

The lefthander also had a tough loss last week in Taiwan.

Taichung Cooperative Bank, a local professional team, used extra innings to beat the USA Baseball Collegiate National Team, 7-6, Friday at Taichung City Stadium. Team USA finished 2-2 in Taiwan.

Abbott provided the Collegiate National Team a boost on the mound, scattering two hits over three innings without allowing an earned run.

Abbott was the tough-luck loser after allowing the international tiebreaker runs in the 10th.

Abbott has a 1.17 ERA. He has a 1-1 record, with four appearances. Abbott has one save. He has pitched 7.2 innings, with five hits allowed. Abbott has given up three runs, one earned. He has two walks and nine strikeouts.

Chih-Hui Chen tripled in the top of the 10th to score both runners placed on base via the international tiebreaker rule and give Taichung a 7-5 lead. Team USA scored a run in the bottom half on a sac fly that would have been a gap shot if not for a great play by Taichung’s center fielder, but Team USA left the tying run on third base.

Team USA has a 6-3 record.
