Mike Siani took flight to make the final out, sending USA to the U-18 Baseball World Cup Final

The World Baseball Softball Confederation U-18 World Cup has an impressive list of alumni that includes Yu Darvish, Clayton Kershaw and Yasiel Puig. Non-Dodgers like Buster Posey have also played in the tournament.
With a 9-0 win over Australia on Saturday, the United States team will enter Sunday's tournament final undefeated. That state of affairs is thanks, in part, to Pennsylvania-native and UVA-commit Mike Siani, who channeled his superhero alter-ego for the final out.

Siani also had a fine game at the plate, going 2-for-5 with a double and two runs scored in the USA win. This game-ending catch certainly added an exclamation point to his day.
