Yesterday in Scottsdale, Arizona, David Wright went 2-for-4 with an RBI in Team USA’s 8-7 loss to the Rockies.
Wright started and batted fifth against the Rockies. He played five innings at third base and was replaced by Ben Zobrist.
Team USA opens WBC play against Team Mexico tomorrow night at 9:00 pm ET at Chase Field in Phoenix.
Michael Baron, ContributorWright seems genuinely excited and proud to be playing for Team USA. He’s also in it to win it all, and not just represent the United States in the tournament. He has said he’s disappointed that he’ll miss time with his new teammates in Mets camp, but this tournament is important to him and I respect that.
