SOUTH WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. Canada took a 2-0 lead in the first before surrendering five runs in the top of the third, highlighted by a steal of home by Saudi Arabia's Tanner Beachy.
Beachy then belted a double to the wall in left to score Bradlee Sumner before Saudi Arabia scored its fifth run of the inning on a bizarre steal of home. After Beachy advanced to third on a wild pitch and Fadlallah walked, Beachy raced home as the Canadian players seemed to fall asleep while catcher Connor McCreath relayed some defensive signals. "It was nerves," said Burns. "The first game of the World Series in front of all of those people. It was probably the biggest crowd we played in front of." Tanner is the son of Rick Beachy assistance coach for the Saudi Arabia's team. Click for the article in The Canadian Press 8/19/20011 9:33:38 PM
