Team Great Britain fell at their final hurdle as they lost to Team Mexico in their final Pool C game of the World Baseball Classic (WBC) at the Chase Field Stadium in Pheonix, Arizona. The match was a close encounter with Mexico, triumphing 2-1 off the back of two RBIs.
Mexico took an early lead in the bottom of the second inning as Alexis Wilson drove a groundball for Issac Paredes to score. Great Britain was able to give it back after three scoreless innings in the top of the 6th as they scored their own groundball single RBI.
However, it was Alexis Wilson who scored another RBI in the bottom of the seventh for the go-ahead single run. Mexico managed to hold on with two scoreless innings to win the match.

Some fans, on the other hand, reflected back on their team’s performance as offensively the Mexicans weren’t up to the level they have shown in the competition.
