The Canadian baseball team won its first win with the most points in the 2023 World Baseball Classic (WBC).

With the victory, Canada won one, and England recorded two consecutive losses, putting it on the verge of being eliminated in the first round.
Britain took the lead. Scored 3 points in the first inning. However, Canada immediately counterattacked at the end of the first inning. Canada opened the game with Eduardo Julien’s leadoff home run. Then, he created a chance to load the bases with one out, and took advantage of a throwing mistake made by British first baseman Nick Ward when Abraham Toro grounded to return the game to the starting point. Then Owen Casey and Jacob Robson hit back and forth, giving Canada a 5-3 lead.
Episode 1 was just the beginning.메이저사이트 Canada added runs every inning from the second to the sixth. At the end of the 3rd inning, he scored 3 runs and ran away to 10-5, and at the end of the 4th inning, he reproduced a 6-run big inning. Britain chased 1 run in the top of the 3rd inning, followed by 3 runs in the top of the 4th inning with Harry Ford’s three-run home run.

Tyler O’Neill (St. Louis Cardinals), who appeared as the third hitter that day, led the batting line explosion. In the last 2017 tournament, he only had 1 hit and 5 strikeouts in 3 games in 11 at-bats. In particular, with the bases loaded at the bottom of the third inning, he got two strikes first and then hit a sweeping double to seal the win.
O’Neill said in an interview with MLB.com, “The national team uniform is special. I will enjoy this opportunity.”
