USA, DR Clinch, Venezuela Pushed to Tiebreaker Game with Italy

The 2017 World Baseball Classic second-round pool play is underway and the United States gets its first taste of the action on Wednesday night. In a Pool F matchup taking place at Petco Park in San Diego, the US (2-1 in the first round of pool play) will face Venezuela (2-2).

Venezuela joined Puerto Rico as the two teams that moved on from Group D.

Gregorius doubled in a run in the third inning when the Netherlands scored four runs to take a 6-0 lead. Tweets were sent out from the World Baseball Classic official Twitter account saying that Venezuela would actually be the one facing Italy in the tiebreaker game.

Ning also said power generation rose 6.3 per cent year on year in the first two months, and freight volume was up 6.9 per cent. China, on the other hand, is one of Pyongyang's biggest allies but has become increasingly anxious about its erratic neighbor.

Adrian Gonzalez is still furious over the way Mexico was eliminated from the World Baseball Classic earlier this week, and the Los Angeles Dodgers star says he will never take part in the event again because of it. Although Colombia put the Dominicans on the edge of their seats, they rallied under the extra-inning rules to win 10-3.

Israel beat the Netherlands, 4-2, in the first round in Seoul but saw a different team at Tokyo Dome. The first set of calculations had Mexico (which had beaten Venezuela, 10-9, and lost to Italy, 10-9) ahead of Venezuela, but that math was redone due to an error: Mexico had been credited for an extra inning in its game against Italy, which had scored five runs in the ninth without making an out.

Texas starter Yu Darvish threw 28 pitches in the first inning but struck out three, then finished with six strikeouts in 3⅓ innings in the Rangers' 7-1 win over the San Francisco Giants.
