PHOENIZ, Ariz. -

PHOENIX (AP) - Adam Jones doubled in the tying and go-ahead runs in the eighth inning, Eric Hosmer had a three-run double in the ninth and the United States beat Canada 9-4 on Sunday to advance to the second round of the World Baseball Classic.
    
Down to their last several outs, the U.S. trailed 3-2 after seven innings before breaking loose. Team USA and Italy advanced in the group while Canada and Mexico were eliminated.
    
Jones and Hosmer both had a rough week at the plate but came through with the United States on the brink of what would have been a humbling loss. Jones' hit was his second in nine at-bats. Hosmer was 3 for 13.
    
Heath Bell pitched a scoreless seventh to get the victory. Jimmy Henderson took the loss.
