‘A kid’s dream’ comes true at WBC

Gio Gonzalez effective and efficient in a big USA victory
United States pitching coach Greg Maddux helped put things in focus for an excitable Gio Gonzalez in the Florida native’s big victory against Puerto Rico on Tuesday night in Miami. Maddux’s advice: “‘Just tune it out, think of something real simple, and try to pound the strike zone,’” Gonzalez said. It worked, and he pitched the Americans into a showdown today against the unbeaten Dominican Republic; winner makes the World Baseball Classic semifinals.
