LSU pitcher Zack Hess pitched four scoreless innings as the USA Baseball Collegiate National Team blanked Cuba 3-0 at Estadio Latinoamericano on Wednesday.
Starting with Hess, three pitchers combined on a three-hit shutout and the offense scored three times in the second inning.
Hess gave up three hits, striking out one and had no walks. Jake Agnos of East Carolina retired all 12 batters in four innings of relief following Hess and closer Max Meyer of Minnesota had a 1-2-3 ninth to pick up his team-leading sixth save of the summer.
The three pitchers retired the final 18 batters that they faced as the U.S. notched its second shutout of the summer. Team USA recorded a 1-0 victory over Japan on July 4 in Durham, N.C.
