While our neighbours celebrate the fourth of July, today's POTD looks back at the Canada Day match-up between the Vancouver Canadians and Salem-Keizer Volcanoes at Nat Bailey Stadium Tuesday afternoon.
Tim Locastro singled, stole second base, rounded third and scored the first run of the game on a Franklin Barreto single.
Ryan McBroom swings away in the first inning. He would ground out to third.
Zak Wasilewski got the starting assignment on Canada Day. He pitched 4.2 innings, giving up two runs on seven hits and a walk while striking out three.
Michael De La Cruz rips the first of his two doubles on the day in the third inning.
That double advanced Chris Carlson to third base after he got aboard on a walk. Both Carlson and De La Cruz would score on a Seth Conner double.
Conner would be driven home on a single by Ryan Metzler, who dives back to first base on an attempted pick-off throw.
Roemon Fields kept the third inning rally going with a single to left.
Franklin Barreto goes down swinging to lead off the sixth inning but the C's would later tack on their final run in the frame.
Kamakani Usui relieved Yeyfry Del Rosario, who supplied 2.1 innings of shutout relief. Usui was nicked for a run on two hits in the eighth inning.
Andrew Case, who entered the game in the ninth, and catcher Seth Conner celebrate the C's 8-4 victory over Salem-Keizier. That capped off a great day for pro baseball in Canada after the Jays beat the Brewers at the Dome earlier in the afternoon.
