Baseball is the best. Team USA and Puerto Rico are both coming off wins as they take the field against each other in the second of three Pool F games of the 2017 World Baseball Classic going down in San Diego, California. On the line for these teams is a trip to the semifinals in Los Angeles at Dodgers Stadium and possibly a spot in the finals. Both teams are loaded with strong arms from Major League Baseball and quick bats from the best teams across the bigs.
Adam Jones, Giancarlo Stanton and Buster Posey have been doing work for Team USA. These guys helped the American squad earn a 4-2 win against Venezuela on Mar. 15th in their first game of second round action in Pool F. A win against Puerto Rico will help team USA lock in a spot in the semifinals.
Puerto Rico is undefeated after four games in the WBC. They opened up to an 11-0 whipping of Venezuela in round one on Mar. 10th in Jalisco, Mexico. They have since beat Mexico and Italy to exit Pool D and advance to round 2 where they have already bagged a win against Dominican Republic, 3-1 on Mar. 14th. Both Puerto Rico and team USA are the real deal so this should be an exciting game to watch.
