WBC Wrap: Puerto Rico Beats Team USA, 6-5

Venezuelan players warm up prior to their game

This is the inherent risk in sending MLB players to the World Baseball Classic.

Come Monday night, the party moves on to Dodger Stadium.

He hit a three-run homer off Andrew Miller in the eighth inning Saturday night to help the Dominicans rally for a 7-5 victory against the United States in the opening round in Miami. After a few minutes in the clubhouse, the team returned to the field waving small flags and ran over to celebrate with a large group of fans on the first-base side who were chanting, beating drums, rattling noisemakers and waving flags. "The first days in Arizona gave us a chance to learn about our mission and to focus on what is on the front of our jersey", Beltran said while putting his hand on the "PR" on his jersey. I think the other countries have been, up to this point, into it more. "And to be able to bring a lot of joy and happiness to the people back home that are going through a tough time right now". Their lone loss in eight years was Wednesday night, 3-1, to Puerto Rico.

That leaves the United States and Dominican Republic, both 1-1 in the second round.

In 2013, the teams played three times. Two runs scored and Puerto Rico had a 6-3 lead.

Ronald Koeman praises professional Romelu Lukaku after Everton rout Hull
Everton fans refused to turn on the 23-year-old and instead roared when his name was announced over the speakers before the game. The Toffees had been confident the Belgium global would sign a new five-year deal thought to be worth around £140,000 a week.

Diaz then struck out Josh Harrison to end it and send the Puerto Ricans into a wild celebration on the infield.

Team USA is set to take on Puerto Rico, with the latter looking to improve to 5-0 overall in the tournament.

Stroman told reporters in San Diego he was up for and excited about the challenge of facing a lineup as strong as Puerto Rico's. That team will play Japan on Tuesday night. "You tip your hat to them".

10 p.m. ET - United States vs.

"You have to be honest with teams and players from the get-go", said Cora, who also serves as Houston's bench coach. Each of Puerto Rico's first six batters reached on hits against Marcus Stroman. But the USA got a break when Eddie Rosario flew out to left field for the first out of the inning.

NC Unemployment up in January
January unemployment rates fell in 205 of the nation's 388 metropolitan areas, rose in 147 areas and were unchanged in 36. Despite the uptick, the rate of unemployment was still lower than the region's 4.2 percent unemployment rate a year ago.

Team USA caught a break on the Crawford play, as he was clearly tagged out at third base.

Fulmer improving • American League rookie of the year Michael Fulmer said his injured right ankle is 100 percent and that he's on track to be ready for the start of the regular season. "They're just going to stick to what they said, so it sounds like they didn't make a mistake". "We kept checking him in every inning to make sure that he's not getting exhausted during the game, and he did OK". Posey's homer in the fifth made it 4-2 and Jones' homer in the sixth made it 4-3.

Jones homered off Hector Rondon to tie it at 2. It looked like Miller would be out of the jam when he got Angel Pagan to chop a ball to third with two outs, but an unexpected hop caused Arenado to throw the ball away, which allowed both insurance runs to score. Rivera batting, Baez and Rosario pulled a double steal.

Hernandez scattered three singles, struck out three and walked none.

"We understand the importance of this game and what we had to do", Nelson said after he hit his third homer of the tournament. "That is the human element of it".
