Unbeaten PR walks off vs. Netherlands to final

It was the golden-locked men of Puerto Rico, who prevailed, 4-3, in the bottom of the 11th inning on Monday night at Dodger Stadium when Eddie Rosario’s sacrifice line drive to center field drove home Carlos Correa, sparking a celebration by first base and ending a marathon that clocked in at 4 hours, 19 minutes, and will be talked about for quite some time in both countries and beyond.

“It means a lot, because Puerto Ricans have gone through a very difficult [economic] situation currently, and we were able to unite our country,” Correa said, “because of our blond hair and through baseball.”

Netherlands eliminates Cuba from 2017 WBC | MLB.com

Another Cinderella story.

Even with a talent-rich team headlined by big leaguers Xander Bogaerts, Didi Gregorius, Jonathan Schoop, Andrelton Simmons and Jurickson Profar, the Netherlands is viewed an underdog in this year’s Classic—at least in contrast to the loaded Pool F dueling on the other side of the Pacific.

Sho Nakata paces Japan’s win over Netherlands | MLB.com

Extra inning game with weird extra runners added to the bases in the 11th. It certainly finished the game in a hurry.
