Just realized Ryan Dempster is starting for Canada against that Dominican lineup. Dempster hasn't pitched in 3 years. Eric Gagne is also in the Canadian bullpen.

Dominican leads Canada 4-0 after 2. Would be the 9th straight win in the WBC for the Dominican. They went 8-0 on the way to winning the WBC last time. 

Dominican just overwhelmed Canada 9-2.

This Mexico vs. Italy game is straight bananas. Mexico was up 4-1 going to the bottom of the 4th. Italy had 1 hit, they did hit a pair of jacks to tie the game at 4. Mexico answered with 3 in the top of the 5th and Drew Butera hit a solo blast for Italy in the bottom of the 5th and it's now 7-5 in the top of the 6th.

Quintana just flat out dominated the US lineup. 

With that performance Quintana just showed some team may pony up to the White Sox asking price!
