With a loss against unbeaten Team Korea, Team USA meets a powerful Team Mexico in a possible 'must win' situation in order to advance to the next round.
Team Mexico finds itself in the same situation tonight against Team Japan, however, if Japan faulters, Mexico will find itself in a position to take out Team USA.
In summation, Team USA, with this defeat against Korea, now needs to defeat Mexico with Roger Clemens on the mound and hope that the Japanese lose to either Mexico or Korea on Tuesday or Wednesday nights to move on.
