Garcia and Mexico eliminate Australia from WBC

Garcia and Mexico eliminate Australia from WBC

Karim Garcia went 4-for-4 with two home runs as Mexico eliminated Australia from the World Baseball Classic with a 6-inning, 16-1 victory Wednesday.
Garcia's three-run homer in the sixth capped a four-run inning and the mercy rule meant Mexico wouldn't need to go the full nine innings to move to the second round.
Mexico will face Cuba on Thursday for first place in Group B. Both teams are headed for San Diego, where Japan and South Korea await in the next round.
Edgar Gonzalez had three RBIs for Mexico, and Jorge Campillo pitched four shutout innings to earn the victory.
Mexico lost its first game to Australia, 17-7.
Australia starting pitcher David Welch allowed four runs and four hits and three innings.
