Canada’s Junior National Team lost their final exhibition match in preparation for the 2022 WBSC U-18 Baseball World Cup in Florida. The squad, which contains four local players, fell to Chinese Taipei 8-4 despite out-hitting their opponent 9-8.

Sam Shaw (Victoria, BC) continues to swing a hot bat going 2-for-3 with a triple and an RBI while scoring a pair of runs. Max Hartman (St. Albert, AB) also had himself a good day at the dish finishing the day 2-for-3 with a double and an RBI. Sam White (Aurora, ON) also had a multi-hit game going 2-for-4 and scoring one for the Juniors.

Elliott Cadieaux-Lanoue (St-Pie, QC) was the starter for the Juniors on this one working two complete innings, allowing four runs on three hits. Nick Frers (North Vancouver, BC) was the first out of the bullpen working two strong frames of two hits, and no earned runs while striking out a batter. Carson Latimer (Delta, BC) also worked two innings of scoreless ball, allowing only one walk and two hits and striking out a batter. Ty Hamilton (Orleans, ON) came in relief late and worked an inning and two thirds of no runs, permitting only one hit and striking out a pair.

Team Canada finished 0-2-1 in their exhibition game set and will face World #3 Korea Friday in the World Cup opener.
