Temple's three-run homer sparks Canada in opener
SOUTH WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. -- Despite what the score says, Canada didn't exactly run away with an opening win over Saudi Arabia on Saturday.
Canada won 13-5, but didn't break away until late.
Jackson Temple hit a three-run homer and British Columbia (1-0) broke a tie with an eight-run fifth inning to defeat Saudi Arabia (0-1).
Temple homered to center, just in front a small brick wall beyond the fences. He took a short hop and a skip before jumping on home plate as teammates patted him on the helmet.
