Japan hammers Canada 9-0 at WBC
It was a tough, error-filled night for the Canadians at the World Baseball Challenge last night.
Up against the Japan-JXEneos, Team Canada gave up two runs in the top of the first inning, and never got in the game as Japan cruised to a 9-0 victory.
Team Canada managed only four hits with six errors on the night, which was perfect for baseball with warm temperatures and partially cloudy skies.
The loss drops Team Canada’s record to 0-2 while Japan’s record moves to 1-1.
Listed attendance for the game was 1,120.
Team Canada doesn’t get any rest as they take to the field again at 7 p.m. tonight against the Chinese Taipei National Team.
The 3 p.m. game this afternoon pits Japan against the U.S.
Canada has Saturday off and take on Cuba on Sunday.
