• One of the main combatants in this past Sunday’s bench-clearing brawl between Mexico and Canada was Oliver Perez (’11). “When fights go wild, anybody can get hurt and that can hurt your career,” Perez said from Mariners’ training camp, “But when you’re in there, it’s just reaction. You don’t want anybody to punch or push you. We’re humans. And in those moments, you just react.”

Chien-Ming Wang (’11-’12) helped his chances of getting signed by a MLB team as he fired 12 scoreless innings in two games against Australia and Japan.

• The Netherlands is headed to the semi-finals as Shairon Martis (’06, ’08, ’11), Roger Bernadina (’07-’08), and Yurendell de Caster (’08) helped the Dutch score a walk-off 7-6 win over Cuba.

Ross Detwiler (’09-’10) helped Team USA advance to the second round with his first career save as he fired four shutout innings to close out a 6-2 victory over Italy.
