dual no hitter through 1

A PR win means the Puerto Ricans meet the Honkballers in the semifinals, giving the Dutch a decent shot at the championship game. (It's 0-0 after four.)

and it means we get to see the dr and japan that will be a good match up
   4. Meatwad Posted: March 16, 2013 at 02:41 PM (#4389504)
well now its a dr rematch, either way should be some good games in the next round

I'm actually hoping for PR to pull this off. I'd be really happy with any of PR/DR/Honkbal winning, I don't want Japan to threepeat.

both japan and the dutch will have a fully rested pitching staff which gives them both an advantage, I think the DR is the only team with the depth to take them on
   7. The Anthony Kennedy of BBTF (Scott) Posted: March 16, 2013 at 03:26 PM (#4389519)
Yeah, the DR bullpen is pretty good. Lots of very hard throwers. I think Japan has to be the favorite thanks to being rested, but they and the Dominicans are 1A and 1B.

Huge out at 3rd.
   9. The Anthony Kennedy of BBTF (Scott) Posted: March 16, 2013 at 03:55 PM (#4389539)
That's a big insurance run.
   10. The Anthony Kennedy of BBTF (Scott) Posted: March 16, 2013 at 04:06 PM (#4389542)
Tying run at the plate. Time to be a hero, Eddie Rosario.
   11. The Anthony Kennedy of BBTF (Scott) Posted: March 16, 2013 at 04:08 PM (#4389544)
Japan v. PR, DR v. Holland. Should be really good games in San Fran.
   12. Gamingboy Posted: March 16, 2013 at 04:24 PM (#4389552)
I predict Japan vs. DR... which, I got to say, is probably the best match-up in the WBC that doesn't feature the USA.

Of course, the Netherlands have beaten the Dominicans before, and this year's Dutch team is better than the previous one...
