If Canada wins here, US loses to Italy, and then beats Canada... what happens? Canada, USA, and Mexico would all be 1-2. Will that mercy game kill us or is it scrapped because Italy wouldn't be part of the tiebreaker? Is it run differential?
The tiebreak is Runs For/Inning At Bat - Runs Against/Innings Pitching in the games between the tied teams.
But since USA/Mexico went 9 each, we're the road team here so this will go 9 each, and we're the home team to the US so if we lose that will be 9 innings each then the Innings pitching/at bats is the same for all so it will basically be run differential.
Mexico beat the US by 3 if they lose by more than 3 here they're out.
US lost by 3 so they need to beat us by 3 or more of they'll be out.
If we win by 6 and Italy beats the USA we would advance with a 4 run loss to the US.
This is why I don't disagree with the bunting up by 6. Every 2 runs we score in this game we can lose by 1 more run in the USA game if Italy beats the US
No, he's there. He's in the dugout wearing a hoodie. I've seen him a few times standing next to Votto.
