What?!

I was watching a recording of last night’s Korea v. Japan game, then realized, I’m missing my team on ESPN right now! Serious baseball on today.

Came to the game in the top of the 9th, Netherlands leading 3-2?!

Willy T. led off the bottom of the 9th with a walk, and advanced to second on a ground out. Then, with Hanley Ramirez at the plate, Felipe Alou sent him to third and he was caught stealing! 2 outs. No one on. All momentum gone.

Netherlands 3, Team Dominicana 2.

More on the WBC throughout the weekend…

Update:  Apparently, Felipe Alou did not send Taveras in the 9th.  It was Willy’s decision, Alou said after the game; “It was not a good play for us.”
