    *notices score*

    Never mind.
    Sandy Koufax and Greenberg might have played for them. It's another US team built on ancestry like Italy.

    This is a weird sentence to type, but:

    Puerto Rico wins 10-0 on a walk-off in the 8th to secure a perfect game over Israel. First perfect game in WBC history. Only other no-hitter was a 7-inning for the Netherlands against Panama in 2006.

      I figured when I saw Danny Valencia out there and Ian Kinsler managing.
      the state of hockey is good

      • Canada started a 19 year old single-A pitcher tonight. Hasn't gone well. Loaded the bases with no outs, it's now 4-0 USA with one out and he's been pulled.. for another pitcher who was Single-A and then Indy ball last year.

        • Update: Hasn't gone any better. a single, a triple, and a HBP later makes it 6-0. Sends Trout up to the plate with two on. First pitch was a fastball at the knees that Trout lasered to left center. 9-0 USA in the first.

          • US won 12-1 in 7 innings. If Canada and Britain win today a five way tie is still possible.

            In the Miami pool Nicaragua is already eliminated and doomed to relegation. Venezuela is in a really good spot to win the group having beaten Puerto Rico and DR already.

            • 21 year old Nicaraguan pitcher Duque Hebbert struck out Juan Soto, Julio Rodriguez, and Rafael Devers 1-2-3 in the 9th.

              An hour later the Tigers signed him to a contract.

                As a note, he gave up a double between those K's. But still pretty awesome.

                • Canada comes back after yesterday's thrashing and pulls out a 5-0 win over Colombia. At 2-1 they now control their destiny for a quarterfinal berth with a win against Mexico tomorrow.

                  • Old Timers Day at the end of the Israel-Domincan game. Cano and Cruz each get on with singles, advance to second and third on a past balls, and the DR wins it 10-0 on a walk-off ground rule double in 7 innings.

                    Israel got one hit and one base runner the last two games over 14 innings.

                    And with Israel losing that means Venezuela has clinched a quarterfinal berth.

                    • Deleted the prior scenarios because I was including a full nine innings of outs for the US, but if Colombia wins then the US wouldn't be at 27 outs, they'd have 24.

                      New scenarios -
                      US wins and they advance as the 2nd seed. Mexico has already won the group.

                      If Colombia wins (non-walk off or walk off with zero outs to make it easy):

                      By three runs or fewer and score is 3-0 or less, US advances.
                      By 4-1 score, goes to the earned runs allowed per out tiebreaker between US and Colombia.
                      By two runs or fewer and score is 4-2 to 8-6, US advances.
                      By 9-7 score, goes to the earned runs allowed per out tiebreaker between US and Colombia.
                      By three or more scoring more than 5 without allowing 10, Colombia advances.
                      By 4+ without giving up 10 or more, Colombia advances.
                      By 11-10 score, goes to earned runs allowed per out tiebreaker between US and Canada.
                      By any score with Colombia 12+ and US 10+, Canada advances.

                      As said before, these scenarios do introduce the South Park Little League situation where the US could try to lose on purpose in order to ensure they lose by less than three or four.

                      • Puerto Rico beats the Dominican Republic 5-2 to advance to the quarters against Mexico.

                        Their jubilation quickly turns to distress, though. Looks like Edwin Diaz may have just been injured in the celebration as the team huddled up. He's down on the ground holding his knee with the whole team waving the trainer in. Now bringing a wheelchair onto the field for him.

                          • US didn’t make it easy, putting Colombia in scoring position multiple times, but they get the win 3-2 and will now play Venezuela Saturday night.

                            Japan is pulling away from Italy late in the game and look to be on their way to the semifinals.

                              Add him to the list:
                              — After the Los Angeles Angels’ Kendrys Morales beat the Seattle Mariners with a grand slam in the bottom of the ninth in 2010, he took a big leap onto home plate and broke his leg. The bouncing scrum at home was subsequently banned by manager Mike Scioscia.

                              — Chicago Cubs pitcher Ryan Dempster broke his big right toe in 2009 when his foot got caught in the dugout railing while he was trying to run out with his teammates to celebrate a win over the Brewers.

                              — In 2001, Denny Hocking of the Minnesota Twins broke his nose, compliments of his overzealous teammates, who kept smacking the bill of his helmet — and a few accidental face shots — after his first walk-off home run.

                              — After the San Diego Padres clinched their division in 2005, pitcher Jake Peavy broke a rib while getting a big hug from his teammates. The injury wasn’t discovered until weeks later when Peavy had an MRI following his forgettable postseason (eight hits and eight earned runs in 4 1/3 innings).

                              — Washington Redskins quarterback Gus Frerotte decided to head-butt the padded wall behind the end zone after scoring on a short run against the Giants in 1997. Stunned but unbowed, he was checked by the team trainers and continued to play before leaving later in the game. He was then transported to a hospital with a sprained neck.

                              — Arizona Cardinals kicker Bill Gramatica ended his rookie season in 2001 with an ACL tear. He was hurt jumping up and down after making a 42-yard field goal against the Giants.

                              ___

                              A bad cause requires many words.
