With apologies to Meatloaf, three out of four ain't bad.

After sweeping doubles at the Pan American Games, Team USA won a gold and a silver in singles on Thursday, the United States Bowling Congress reported.

Liz Johnson beat Jennifer Park of Canada 2-0 for the women's gold, while Chris Barnes fell 2-0 to Santiago Mejia of Colombia in the men's gold medal match.

"Anytime you win three out of four gold medals you can't say anything but that it was successful," Team USA head coach Rod Ross said in this USBC news release. "We had a shot at getting all four, but Colombia bowled extremely well and deserved to earn the gold."

Team USA's Bill O'Neill lost in the quarterfinals, while Kelly Kulick lost in the Round of 16.
