Mexico finished Group C of the World Baseball Classic with three straight wins, clinching first place and a spot in the quarterfinals with Wednesday afternoon’s 10-3 win over Canada at Chase Field.

Randy Arozarena, a native of Cuba who became a Mexican citizen last year after having been in the country since 2015, cleared the bases with a double in the top of the sixth inning for the big hit of the game, and drove in five runs total for the game.

Mexico defeated the U.S. 11-5, Great Britain 2-1 and Canada after a frustrating 10-inning loss to Colombia on Saturday. Mexico will play the winner of the Dominican Republic-Puerto Rico game in Miami later Wednesday to determine its next opponent on Saturday.
