Andy Van Hekken's left arm could carry Team USA to the second round of the 2011 Baseball World Cup today. Van Hekken is pitching right now against host Panama at Rod Carew Stadium. A victory would put the Americans past Puerto Rico into the Second Round of the competition. A loss sends the club packing early for next week's Pan Am Games in Mexico.
