"We missed some signs, and we walked too many hitters, especially leading off an inning," Collins said. "We can't do that against Japan or Korea and expect to win, but this victory gives us great confidence for tomorrow night for our game with whichever of those two great teams we will face."China center fielder Lingfeng Sun, who went 1-for-3, scored a run and stole a base, concurred.
"This is best game we've ever played, but it is just a start. We have to keep winning."
