The World Baseball Classic wrapped up on Wednesday night with the undefeated Team Puerto Rico taking on USA. These two teams met on Friday and Puerto Rico took a 6-5 victory. The tables were turned on Wednesday though, as the United States picked up their first WBC title with an 8-0 victory.
Andrew McCutchen had two RBI singles in this game, giving USA a 4-0 lead in the fifth, then extending the lead to 8-0 in the eighth inning. Toronto starter Marcus Stroman had a no-hitter going into the seventh inning. Three relievers finished out the final three innings for the win.
