The Canadian baseball team lost 6-5 to the Dominican Republic on Saturday in the Americas Playoffs. So you should put a cross on participating in the Tokyo Olympics.
After losing to the United States the day before, Canada definitely had to win to keep their Olympic dream alive.
Canada led 5-4 after Pinero hit his third long ball of the day, early in the eighth inning. But the Dominicans hit back with two points when they returned to the racket thanks to fruitful singles from Gustavo Nunez and Julio Rodriguez.
Jose Diaz scored the victory for the Dominican Republic, while Jairo Asensio scored the goal. Scott Matheson hit backhand for Canada.
The Canadians took a 3-0 lead in the first half after one game from Conor Banas and Homer from Pinheiro.
The Dominican Republic scored one game in Group Two and two in Group C. Then Charlie Valerio landed a long ball solo in the fifth.
Pinheiro tied the match in the sixth half before adding a four-goal kick in the eighth.
The Canadians finished the Grand Tour with zero wins, and three record losses, a good result for a fourth-place finish in the tournament.
Thus, the Dominican Republic ranked second after the United States.
The teams ranked second and third in the standings will have one last chance to qualify for the Olympics. The team that finishes first is automatically qualified.
