    When Mexico beat the United States during the 2006 World Baseball Classic, it was a little bittersweet because the team was headed home no matter what.

    Doing it again with so much at stake was simply sweet for the Mexicans.

    Adrian Gonzalez homered and drove in three runs, seven pitchers handcuffed United States hitters all night and Mexico rebounded from a disappointing opening loss with a decisive 5-2 win over the Americans in Pool D of the World Baseball Classic on Friday.
