US baseball players shocked at WBC, reaching final four


The United States is the fourth and last country to qualify for the World Baseball Classic semifinals, after Cuba, Japan, and Mexico. The reigning champion has just been released on a scare against Venezuela in Miami: 9-7.

This was largely thanks to Trea Turner of the Philadelphia Phillies, who had a three-man home run in the eighth inning. The USA took the lead 9-7 by 5-7.

“I tried not to do too much,” the winner of the match later said. “I was expecting a place in the middle, and I held my racket there.”

Impressed by their wins over favorites Dominican Republic and Puerto Rico, Venezuela took the lead for the first time, taking the lead by four runs (6:5) in the fifth innings and then two rounds by two innings. But that wasn’t enough to win.

The tournament, which has been held in Taiwan, Japan and the United States so far, will see its essence in Miami. The United States should get back to work today. They face Cuba in a politically charged semi-final.

Japan and Mexico are also fighting for the other place in the final, which will be held in Miami on Monday. The Dutch team was killed in the group stage.
