Silva allowed one earned run in 11 innings in the first two rounds, while Hernandez pitched 8 2/3 scoreless innings. Hernandez will be available in relief in the semifinals, if necessary, and could start the final if Venezuela advances.

In other news, Peavy is okay with Oswalt starting in the semis.  That's good to know.

"I have no problems with it," Peavy said after the U.S. worked out at the Academy on the campus of Compton Community College only about 15 miles south of downtown Los Angeles. "I'm looking forward to starting the championship game. I have a little bit of history with them. They decided to start Roy. I think it's going to be a good move."

Oswalt, the Astros right-hander, will face Daisuke Matsuzaka, Japanese manager Tatsunori Hara confirmed on Friday.

These last few games should be fun.  Unless it's Korea vs. Japan again because holy crap they've played each other too many times.
