3/7 Italy & Rizzo beat Mexico
Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo hit a two-run, go-ahead double with one out in the ninth off Sergio Romo to lift Team Italy to a 6-5 come from behind victory over Mexico in the World Baseball Classic. Rizzo also singled in the first inning off former Cubs pitcher Rodrigo Lopez. Italy faces Canada on Friday at Chase Field; the game was moved because of the forecast for rain.
