COLUMBIA, Mo. –
The USA Baseball Women’s National Team, highlighted by Mizzou sophomore Jenna Marston, completed the 2010 IBAF Women’s World Cup by capturing the bronze model on Sunday after defeating host Venezuela by a 15-5 score.

The Missouri shortstop helped guide Team USA to the win on Sunday by going 2-for-2 at the plate with a pair of doubles, two runs scored and two driven in.  Getting the nod in right field, Marston started all nine games of the tournament, rotating between right field, shortstop and pitcher.

Her .593 batting average (16-for-27) was the highest on Team USA and second highest amongst hitters for the entire tournament.  She also was the tournament leader with 16 hits and eight doubles.  She finished with 12 runs scored, seven runs batted in, was a perfect 3-for-3 on stolen bases, posted a team-best .636 on-base percentage and a slugging percentage of .889, second-highest on the team.

On the hill, Marston posted a 1-1 record with a miniscule 1.91 earned run average in three starts.  In 11.0 innings pitched, she struck out six batters while holding opponents to a .211 batting average.

For her impressive work at the plate and in the field, Marston was selected as a member of the All-Tournament Team, earning the honors as the squad's shortstop.  She was just one of two members of Team USA to earn All-Tournament Team accolades.
