Mexico saved the possibility of advancing to the second round.
On the 15th (Korean time), Mexico won 2-1 against Great Britain in the first round of Group C of the 2023 World Baseball Classic held at Chase Field in Phoenix, Arizona, USA. Depending on the results of the game on the 16th, Mexico’s advance to the second round will be decided. England finished the tournament with 1 win and 3 losses in the first round.
It was expected that the dark horse Mexico, who had defeated the United States, would be superior, but the momentum of England, who won their first victory in the first round, was also formidable. The game was tied 1-1 until the 6th inning.위너 토토
Mexico took the lead. In the second inning, Isaac Paredes’ hit and Alan Trejo’s walk created an opportunity, and after two outs, Alexis Wilson struck the first timely hit.
However, Mexico seldom created a chance behind the first goal. England, which had endured well, launched a counterattack in the 6th inning.
Chavez Young, the lead batter in the 6th inning, became the runner in scoring position at once with a double. When Tracy Thompson and Nick Ward were caught with a strikeout and a fly ball from third base, respectively, Young succeeded in stealing third base and put pressure on Mexico. In the 2nd, 1st and 3rd bases, BJ Murray Jr. scored a timely hit to tie the score.
This balance was broken 7 times. Mexico started to lead again with Alexis Wilson’s timely hit from first out and second base. At the bottom of the 8th inning, the chance to go 1 out and 2nd base was missed, but Giovanni Gallegos blocked the top of the 9th with no runs and kept the victory.
