    Clemens absorbs loss as Mexico throws three-hitter

    Roger Clemens has said he's leaning toward retirement after the World Baseball Classic.
    AP




    ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) -- Roger Clemens was a loser in what might have been the final start of his outstanding career, and Mexico eliminated Team USA from the World Baseball Classic.

    Oliver Perez and seven relievers combined to pitch a three-hitter Thursday night as Mexico beat the Rocket and the United States 2-1, giving Japan another shot at Korea in the WBC semifinals.

    The outcome was a stunner, considering Team USA fielded a lineup loaded with All-Stars even without Derrek Lee and Johnny Damon, sidelined with sore left shoulders.

    South Korea had a 3-0 second-round record in Group One, with Team USA, Japan and Mexico all going 1-2. Japan earned the second semifinal berth from the group by allowing the fewest runs in games between the tied teams.

    Japan, which has already lost twice to South Korea in the Classic, faces its archrival in Saturday's opening semifinal game at Petco Park in San Diego, with the Dominican Republic meeting Cuba on Saturday night. The winners play Monday night for the championship.

    Clemens, who has won 341 games and struck out 4,502 batters in his big league career, has said he's leaning toward retirement after the Classic. He wasn't at his best against Mexico, allowing six hits and two runs in 4 1-3 innings with no walks and four strikeouts. He threw 73 pitches -- seven below the maximum for the second round.

    Someone should set this story/team as the first "hit" when you post "failure" on google!

    The biography of George W. Bush already holds that distinct honor. I'm not kidding. Try it yourself.

    As for the title of the movie, "Multi-Million Dollar Babies"

    Oh well, at least we didn't lose to (insert small frozen country here)

    Not sure what country you may be referring to. I suspect it may be Canada because we are probably the only country enterred that would be worthy of the term "Frozen" But if that's the case, you did in fact lose to Canada in the opening round. Canada then lost to Mexico as well.

    manofire,

    That wasn't meant as a slam against our Canadian brothers. I was being a smart ***** about how they could probably lose to a country (Antartica's a continent right?) that only fields a team 3 months a year due to the snow. Sorry didn't mean to make you think I meant Canada

    No offense taken, both US and Canada should be able to field teams which are competitive at this level. We both lost to Mexico, Canada was lucky to beat South Africa.

    Add to this, the mighty Mexicans failed to make it to the final.

    I've been watching the final of the WBC between Japan and Cuba and they just showed a great feature on the 2 teams working yesterday to help build modular houses for the victims of Hurricane Katrina. It was an effort that apparently was organized by Ichiro Suzuki of the Mariners. One of those great moments when sports transcends politics.
