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

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.
