— Player Notes
Advice: Mexico jumped out to an early 2-0 lead in the contest before Venezula battled back with four straight runs to take a 4-2 advantage in the seventh. Mexico added a pair of their own in the bottom half of the seventh to tie the game, setting the stage for Vazquez's dramatic blast. The 33-year-old hasn't played professionally stateside since being released by the Yankees in 2012, but was the shining star on a large stage on Sunday.
