Team Canada plays Team USA at 4 PM ET, with the winner advancing to the second round of the World Baseball Classic.
In what has to be considered a bit of a surprise, USA manager Joe Torre is sitting Marlins slugger Giancarlo Stanton, who has gone hit-less in the tournament.
Here are your lineups:
|TEAM USA||TEAM CANADA|
|1. SS – Jimmy Rollins||1. CF – Tyson Gillies|
|2. 2B – Brandon Phillips||2. 3B – Taylor Green|
|3. DH – Ryan Braun||3. 1B – Joey Votto|
|4. C – Joe Mauer||4. DH – Justin Morneau|
|5. 3B – David Wright||5. RF – Michael Sauders|
|6. RF – Ben Zobrist||6. C – Chris Robinson|
|7. CF – Adam Jones||7. LF – Adam Loewen|
|8. 1B – Eric Hosmer||8. 2B -Pete Orr|
|9 – LF – Shane Victorino||9. SS – Cale Iorg|
|P – Derek Holland||P – Jameson Taillon|
Canada, who didn’t have any players suspended after the brawl yesterday against Mexico, seem up for the challenge today.
