March 10 (Bloomberg) -- The U.S. became the final team to advance to the second round of the World Baseball Classic, beating Canada 9-4 with seven runs over the final two innings.

Adam Jones of Major League Baseball’s Baltimore Orioles had a two-run double and scored in the eighth inning as the U.S. erased a 3-2 deficit in Phoenix. The Americans pushed across four more runs in the ninth, with Eric Hosmer of the Kansas City Royals delivering a three-run double with two outs.

The U.S., which beat Italy and lost to Mexico in its first two games, are the last of eight teams to advance to the second round of the sport’s third World Baseball Classic. The Americans join the Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico and Italy in Pool 2 and next play on March 12 in Miami.
