TOKYO: The United States will take on South Korea in the final of the Premier 12 baseball tournament after crushing Mexico 6-1 on Friday. Dan Rohlfing smacked a double to spark a five-run rally in the fourth inning for the Americans, shattering Mexican resistance at the Tokyo Dome after Humberto Sosa’s homer in the bottom of the same inning had given his side hope. South Korea beat bitter rivals Japan 4-3 in Thursday’s first semifinals of the inaugural competition involving the top 12-ranked teams in world baseball. Japan will take on Mexico in the third-place playoff before Sunday’s finals.
