Into the semi­fi­nals

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - SPORTS -

Jeff Ellsworth drove in the win­ning run Thurs­day as Canada downed Venezuela 41 in soft­ball ac­tion at the Pan Amer­i­can Games in Ajax, Ont. Ellsworth hit an RBI triple to drive in Canada’s sec­ond run of the game and that would be all the of­fence the team needed as it fin­ished the round-robin un­de­feated at 40. Steve Mul­laly added an RBI triple while Andy Skel­ton had an RBI sin­gle to put Canada ahead 4-0. The win means Canada fin­ishes first and moves into the semi­fi­nals to­day. The United States takes on Venezuela at 5:30 p.m. AT while Ellsworth and the Cana­dian squad meets Ar­gentina in the other semi. That game be­gins at 8 p.m. AT.
