SALVADOR, Brazil (AP) - Jozy Altidore now has plenty of time to rest his ailing left hamstring.

SALVADOR, Brazil (AP) - Jozy Altidore now has plenty of time to rest his ailing left hamstring.
 
     The United States has been eliminated by Belgium 2-1 in overtime in the second round of the World Cup, puncturing the soccer bubble that Americans had enjoyed for a couple of weeks.
 
     Following a scoreless 90 minutes of regulation, Belgium scored two quick goals at the start of the 30-minute overtime. Julian Green got one back for the U.S. in the 107th minute of the match. Despite putting on late pressure, the U.S. failed to score the equalizer.
 
     U.S. goalie Tim Howard was the reason the Americans even reached overtime, making several tough stops during the scoreless regulation. Howard finished with 16 saves.
 
     The U.S. was trying to advance to the quarterfinals for the first time since 2002.
 
     Belgium next plays Argentina, which beat Switzerland 1-0 in extra time. The lone goal was scored in the 118th minute.

     Ricky Nolasco earned his first win in five starts, allowing one run and eight hits in six innings.
 
     Eric Hosmer had four hits for the Royals.
