The United States got us an underdog win over Japan to make up for our runline loss with Puerto Rico the night before. The US actually closed a favorite with my local with a lot of steam on game day.
The win over Japan might illusion Americans into believing they still play better baseball than Japan. But that just isn’t true.
There are some monster pitchers on Team USA who gave their side a chance, but their arms will break down in a couple years.
The Japanese continue to prove they play the game at the highest level in the world with master pitching that sustains itself and impeccable fundamentals everywhere else. What a joy it is to watch them play.
But they played the game and it was either team’s to win. The US still has those monster arms too. Marcus Stroman will start with Andrew Miller fresh in the bullpen.
The pitching matchup is a repeat of Puerto Rico’s 6-5 win Friday night in San Diego.
PR hit Stroman for four runs in the first inning in that one, but the American starter managed to get thru 4.2 inning without allowing any more.
Seth Lugo, however, allowed one run in the second, fifth and sixth inning to get the win.
Look out for who starts behind the dish for the Americans. Javy Baez stole three bases off of Buster Posey last week. But Posey homered in that one and then hit the ball well last night.
Jonathan Lucroy is available, however.
