WBC SemiFinal #1 recap

Start here

Last  night’s game at Dodger Stadium  had something for every baseball fan . Powerful hitting ( some MLB team  needs to give Valdimir Balentin anther shot) Strong relief pitching turned what looked to be an offensive game into a pitcher’s duel. Great infield defense with both teams  turning 7 double plays showing they have some of the best infielders playing in  the Major Leagues.  .  Drama was high with all the baserunners  Chess  match style managing  with limits placed on players by the WBC rules and the  Big league players who employers tightened the limits more . The win or go home champion round magnified this exponentially. National pride which threatened to boil over in on field extra innings brawl, but  cooler heads prevailed. the automatic rally runners in the 11th put the focus on which team could execute  old-fashioned baseball .Puerto Rico came through in the end but the Dutch have nothing to be ashamed of  IIt was an awemsome game for gobal baseball fans.
