The United States overcame a first inning deficit to defeat the Dominican Republic in a must-win game three of Pool F.
Danny Duffy got the win, Giancarlo Stanton homered out of the eight spot and Adam Jones made the play of the tournament in center field to rob his Orioles teammate Manny Machado of a home run.
Now it’s Tanner Roark’s turn to start a game, which should make his manager back in the nation’s capital a little less grumpy.
Dusty Baker has taken his complaints about playing time for Roark and Daniel Murphy public this week. He’s worried his two guys missing from spring training camp won’t be ready in time for the regular season and need more live game time.
Something tells me Jim Leyland probably doesn’t care. Expect him to stick with his guy Ian Kinsler, as far as Murphy is concerned.
I don’t know anybody on Japan’s National Team; I just don’t underestimate them.
The result has been cash, hitting overs, unders, moneylines and runlines. I haven’t faded Japan in any of its six games but today is the first good opportunity.
I haven’t seen enough to get behind Japan as this big of a favorite. Team USA at Dodger Stadium is a far cry from Australia or Cuba at the Tokyo Dome and you might remember Japan struggling early on against some inferior opponents.
It’s hard to imagine Japan would have gone 6-0 had it started play in Pool C or D. I consider this game much more of a toss-up than the books suggest.
Free United States vs. Japan WBC Prediction: it’s decided in the late innings.
Both bullpens are strong but the Japanese are a little more equipped to push one across in a pinch. I give Japan somewhere between a 50 and 55 percent chance of victory.
