It was starting to look like the star-filled roster of Team USA was going to fall to their Canadian neighbors Sunday, but a late rally made what was a close game look like a blowout in the end. Team USA took the lead in the 8th inning off a double by Adam Jones.

The U.S. earned the right to move on to Round Two with a 9-4 win. Your browser does not support iframes.
