PHOENIX (AP) - The World Baseball Classic has decided no one will be suspended from the nasty brawl between Canada and Mexico.

The organizers said in a statement Sunday that while the mayhem "runs counter to the spirit of sportsmanship and respectful competition," suspensions would not be appropriate because one team and possibly both will not advance to the second round.

Canada's 10-3 victory eliminated Mexico from the competition. Canada faces the United States on Sunday, with the winner advancing to the WBC's second round.

The brawl began in the ninth inning Saturday when Canada's Rene Tosoni was hit by a pitch from Mexico's Arnold Leon after Canadian Chris Robinson reached on a bunt single.
