COPY-US beats China 9-1 in physical, rough game

Associated Press - August 18, 2008 2:05 PM ET

BEIJING (AP) - Oklahoma RedHawks catcher Taylor Teagarden helped the U.S. baseball team defeat China 9-1 in the Olympics.

Texas last month optioned Teagarden to the Rangers AAA team in time for him to make the Olympic squad.

Jake Arrieta struck out seven in six shutout innings while Teagarden and Nate Schierholtz each hit two-run doubles for the U.S.

China catcher Wang Wei was knocked out of the game with a left knee injury following a collision at the plate with Matt LaPorta in the fifth.

After Schierholtz made a hard slide home against backup catcher Yang Yang on a sacrifice fly in the sixth - and Yang was held back from Schierholtz by teammates - China manager Jim Lefebvre was ejected for arguing about the rough play.

Chinese reliever Chen Kun and China pitching coach Steven Ontiveros were tossed when Chen hit LaPorta in the head to start the seventh.
