USA beat Canada 9-4 (it was a closer game than the score indicates), they move onto the second round. Mexico came in last in Pool D which means they will have to re-qualify for the WBC in 2017.

Also, Manos (Jose Valentin) is the first base coach for Puerto Rico.

Love the WBC and glad the US is advancing. It provides a nice bridge over spring training games and today's game was really fun to watch.

I also love that the Larry Bowa mic finally paid off when a censor fell asleep on a check swing appeal. The announcers obviously didn't acknowledge it.

Also, Lorenzo Barcelo pitched for the Dominican team. The 2000 White Sox were well represented.

In other WBC news, this writer skewers Joe Torre's managing of the USA team. Most of his critiques definitely have merit. I was scratching my head wondering why he was playing small ball with run producers like Adam Jones.

Arnold Leon, whose plunking of Rene Tosoni started Saturday's Canada-Mexico brawl, sent to Triple-A by Oakland today.

Greatest Arsenal goal I have ever witnessed. Chills to this day watching it.

Rios, Manos and Andy Gonzalez are showing some fire against Italia. What a comeback.

How has Rios looked in the WBC so far? I know he scored the winning run tonight but I only saw him against the US so far and I thought his at bats didn't look too good (but few players had good at bats against Gio).

He looked pretty decent against the USA. He had two hard hit balls up the middle. One of them was absolutely smashed but Jeremy Affeldt made a tremendous snab that robbed him of a hit.

Craig Kimbrel gave up a leadoff double to Nelson Cruz and Erik Aybar came through with a BIG hit to give the Dominican Republic a 2-1 lead in the 9th. Meanwhile Angel Hernandez is expanding the strike zone so that it incorporates the opposite batter's box.
