We hit the big play with Japan -1.5 but it wasn’t nearly as resounding a victory as I drummed it up to be. The Dutch came back from 1-0, 5-1, and 6-5 before Team Japan got them with with two runs in the top of the 11th.
Xander Bogaerts went 0-for-4 with 5 left on base but Japanese home run legend Wladimir Balentien picked him up with his first dinger of the tournament.
It will be Jair Jurrjens tasked with being the first to defeat the Israelis. He started Netherlands’ game against Taiwan and gave up a couple runs in three innings. It’s been a hard full from a guy who was once a Cy Young candidate.
Three singles and two doubles were enough for 4 runs against Cuba even though all Israel did on the bases was get caught trying to steal once.
It was the 8 walks from Cuba’s pitching that allowed Israel to score as many as it did. Two Cuba’s five pitchers didn’t walk any and those guys didn’t allow any runs. But the other three were the culprits and each gave up at least one run.
Jason Marquis won’t be available so Israel will call on minor leaguer Corey Baker who also started against Taiwan and had a lot more success than Jurrjens (4.2 innings, 3 hits, no runs).
The first time these two teams played in Pool A Israel used nine pitchers to hold the Netherlands to two runs.
