The United States and Colombia will square off in a high-stakes Pool C finale Wednesday at the World Baseball Classic.

Team USA is in the driver's seat to make it out of pools in this year's World Baseball Classic despite a decisive loss to Mexico in the second game.

Entering the day in a three-way tie atop the pool with Mexico and Canada at 2-1, the United States is in a "win and you're in" situation. The USA owns the tiebreaker over Canada while losing it to Mexico if it's a two-team tie for the top of the standings, and one of them will have another loss after the pair face off Wednesday afternoon.

If the United States loses, it will almost assuredly miss the quarterfinals, as it would lose to Colombia via the second tiebreaker of runs per out recorded.

The USA lineup wasn't as advertised in the first two games against Great Britain and Mexico, but it finally broke through against Canada in a 12-1 win featuring a nine-run first inning. The top of the order, featuring Mookie Betts, Mike Trout, and Paul Goldschmidt finally got things going with some consistency.

Against Colombia, the United States will have Merrill Kelly on the mound. Colombia has tapered off since its 5-4 10-inning stunner over Mexico, dropping the next two to Great Britain and Canada. It will fall on Gio Urshela and Jorge Alfaro to get things going against to bring themselves to 2-2 and drop the United States to 2-2.
