Adam Dunn and Brian McCann each hit a two-run homer, and the United States opened the World Baseball Classic by holding off feisty Canada 6-5 on Saturday. Kevin Youkilis added a solo shot and J.J. Putz closed it out in a nervous ninth inning for Team USA, which lost to Canada in the inaugural WBC three years ago.

Despite a roster loaded with major league All-Stars, that U.S. squad stumbled to a disappointing eighth-place finish - a big reason this club has talked about taking back America's game.
