Van Hekken, Van Ostrand on to the Medal Round

Team Canada with Jimmy Van Ostrand and Team USA with Andy Van Hekken move on to the Medal Round of the 2011 Pan Am Games Monday in Mexico.

Van Ostrand and his Canadian teammates will take on host Mexico at 7 p.m. in one semi-final game. In the first three games of the tournament, Van Ostrand is 7 for 13 with two RBI.

Van Hekken and his American teammates face Cuba Monday afternoon at 2 p.m. Van Hekken allowed 0 earned runs in his first start of the Pan Am Games Thursday, pitching seven innings. I have not seen a confirmation of this fact, but my guess is that Van Hekken would be in line to start for Team USA in the Gold Medal or Bronze Medal, both of which are scheduled for Tuesday.

Live results of the event are available here.
