On March 6, 2017 — 2017 – The 2017 World Baseball Classic gets underway with a huge upset as Israel wins its debut game on the WBC stage over hosts South Korea, 2 – 1 in 10 innings. Jason Marquis starts things off with three scoreless frames, as both teams score once in regulation innings. Korean closer Seung-hwan Oh escapes a jam in the 8th, fanning SS Scott Burcham with the bases loaded for the final out. However, Burcham redeems himself in the 10th with a two-out infield single off Chang-yong Lim that scores pinch-runner Mike Meyers from second base. Josh Zeid then closes out the win with his third straight scoreless inning for Israel.
