Canada opened play at the World Baseball Classic with a wild 18-8 win over Great Britain on Sunday at Chase Field in Phoenix, Ariz.  The Canadian squad had a 17-hit attack and a former Thunder Bay Border Cat had a big day at the plate.   Outfielder Jacob Robson, who played for the Border Cats in 2014, went 4-4, with a double, one run batted in, three runs scored and a stolen base.  Robson got off to a good start earlier in the week as he hit a solo home run on Wednesday during Canada’s 11-7 exhibition loss to the Chicago Cubs in Mesa.  Robson reached the major leagues with the Detroit Tigers in 2021 and the Windsor, Ont., native is currently a free agent.  Canada (1-0), faces the United States (1-1), in Pool C play Monday night at 10:00pm ET.
