Chris Colabello went 3-for-4 with a three-run homer as Italy defeated Canada 14-4 in the World Baseball Classic on Friday.
The game ended in the eighth inning after Mario Chiarini singled in a run to invoke the mercy rule. After defeating Mexico on Thursday, underdog Italy continues to be the surprise of the tournament. They haven't clinched a spot in Round 2 yet, but things are looking good right now. Next up is Team USA on Saturday night.
