Cubs in the WBC, Day 3

Posted by Lionel on March 10, 2009.

Another "off" day for Cubs players on Sunday. But Monday...

Korea defeated Japan in a shocker, especially given the 14-2 drubbing Team Japan had handed Korea two days earlier. Fukudome batted 7th again and started in CF. He went 1 for 3, bringing him WBC BA to .286. Japan will head stateside and play in San Diego on Sunday.

Vince Perkins started for Team Canada against Italy. Perkins struggled. In just 2 innings pitched, he walked 4 and gave up 3 hits. That lead to 3 runs, 2 of them earned, and the loss for Perkins. Team Canada was eliminated.

Corey Koskie and Geo Soto didn't play for their teams on Monday. Actually, Koskie didn't play for Team Canada whatsoever.
