Here's the full video of how it started...Mexico tried hitting someone with a pitch and kept going after him 3 straight times even though he missed.

If someone throws at me like that, I'd be out after the pitcher too. Especially when the third baseman is essentially the instigator.

Proud of the boys for sticking up for themselves!

Lol couldn't hear the commentary on my phone, but did they think that bunt was cheap...or did Canada hit one of their players earlier....?

The Mexican 3rd baseman was unhappy that the Canadian bunt for hit in the 9th inning of a 9-3 game, but in the WBC round robin, one of the tie breakers is indeed runs scored, therefore you must score as many runs as possible in case you finish in a tie in terms of record. Furthermore, that is why there is a mercy rule at 10.

In the end, even the Mexican manager hinted that it was unnecessary and it was a "misunderstanding", both managers went on to say that there must be some other way other than run differential because it conflicts with the regular written rules of baseball. Just a mess.

Oh...and apparently, a bit of a joke, but apparently the Mexican also took offense to the Canadisn sliding in hard at 2nd base to break up a double play while up 6-3 in the 7th. Stupidest thing I've ever heard.

They are just sore losers, you can see some teams lose 10-0 and none of this happens.

We lost 14-4 to Italy. You didn't see us out there throwing at players. We kept playing hard and trying to comeback, which obviously didn't work out.

9-3 in the 9th I can see being ticked off with a bunt, I don't know its enough to throw at somebody especially after being warned.lol.. hard sliding with a 3 run lead in the 7th is nothing to get upset about... Hearing that comment sounds like they gave up already before the 9 th inning incident ever happen...
