Mexico defeated the United States 11-5 to qualify for its first victory in the 2023 World Baseball Classic. The Mexican team came with a reserved preview on the second day of Group C and left the Chase Field in Phoenix (Arizona) rehabilitated by winning the current tournament of champions.
The Tri’s record for 30 years was led by first baseman and outfielder Joey Meneses, who drove in five runs, including two home runs.
In addition to the contribution of the Washington Nationals player, the Mexican offense had 15 hits and the pitching staff, which came into play, limited the production of the American bats to eight hits. In addition, five are carried around.
Beniamín Gil’s team took the lead on a hit by Meneses, who was also catapulted by first baseman Randy Arozarena.
The Stars and Stripes led the team in the bottom of the second inning with a Tim Anderson RBI single to Kyle Tucker.
Mexico started again in the third event with a shot by Johantan Paredes, who became the head of Meneses’ run.
But a four-inning rally was made in the top of the fourth inning.
The United States again led by Will Smith, who hit a solo home run in the bottom of the seventh, and the Tri team then scored four more runs.
The Eagles led with three more runs.
The Diamondbacks stadium today is the stage for the third victory of the Tri-Stars and Beats team in four games played by the World Cup.
On that day, Canada reached the top of the group on offense by beating Great Britain 18-8, who occupy the bottom of the table with two defeats.
