Alexis Wilson reacted with an RBI single in the bottom of the seventh inning to break a tie, and Mexico overwhelmingly prevailed on Tuesday the 14th with a final score of 2-1 over the United Kingdom. This marker places the ninth Mexican in the group stage, leaving their chances of qualifying for the next round in the 2023 World Baseball Classic alive.
Mexico went ahead after Alexis Wilson himself drove in Alan Trejo with a single in the second inning, but the English tied the score for the sixth inning thanks to BJ Murray’s RBI single.
The starter for Mexico was Taijuan Walker who shone from the first four scoreless innings of just one hit with eight fans, but he went without a decision in the match. The win went to Jojo Romero, with one and a third scoreless innings in relief, while the setback went to Tahnaj Thomas’ record, after giving up the go-ahead run in his relief of just one-third of the inning.
The next appointment will be against the Canadians on Thursday, March 16.
