It was held at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles, California, from March 20 to March 22, 2017, and was the finals round of the 2017 World Baseball Classic. Single-elimination tournaments were used in the championship round. From Pool E, Japan and the Netherlands went to the semifinals and then to the finals. Puerto Rico and the United States made significant progress from Pool F. The Dominican Republic, the defending champions, were ousted in the second round. The United States and Japan played their semifinal games on March 20 and 21, respectively, while Puerto Rico and the Netherlands played theirs on March 20.

Due to a shoulder injury, Didi Gregorius was forced to withdraw from the Netherlands’ matchday squad prior to the game. Kenley Jansen, who had not pitched in the previous rounds, was acquired by the Netherlands. Rick van den Hurk made his debut for the Netherlands, while Jorge López made his debut for Puerto Rico. Two-run home runs were struck by Wladimir Balentien and Carlos Correa, both in the first inning. In the second inning, T. J. Rivera drove in a run with a home run for Puerto Rico. During the fifth inning, a run batted in (RBI) double by Shawn Zarra brought the Netherlands even with the game.
Starting in the 11th inning, teams begin each inning with runners on first and second base as a method of avoiding the possibility of a sudden death.
Semifinal 2 − United States 2, Japan 1
Tanner Roark went four innings without allowing a run for the United States.

Japan advanced to the semifinals by winning all six of its games in the previous round of competition. Tanner Roark made his international debut for the United States in the semifinal game, while Tomoyuki Sugano made his debut for the Japanese. Roark went four innings without allowing a run, while Sugano went six innings and allowed one run. The United States scored a run in the fourth inning on an RBI single by Andrew McCutchen, and Japan tied the game in the sixth inning on a home run by Ryosuke Kikuchi.
In spite of the fact that the Japanese squad was widely regarded as the best defensive club in the World Baseball Classic, errors by Kikuchi at second base and Nobuhiro Matsuda at third base resulted in each of the United States’ runs.
Final − United States 8, Puerto Rico 0

When Puerto Rico advanced to the championship, it did so by winning all seven games that they played in the competition. When Puerto Rico and the United States met off in Pool F, Puerto Rico came out on top. Seth Lugo began for Puerto Rico in the title game, and Marcus Stroman started for the United States in the final. United States batter Ian Kinsler blasted a two-run home run in the third inning, putting the game out of reach for Puerto Rico, which failed to score a single run during the rest of the inning.
Brandon Crawford drove in two additional runs with a bases-loaded single in the seventh inning, and Giancarlo Stanton drove in the third run of the inning with an RBI single of his own.
McCutchen’s RBI single in the eighth inning gave the United States a 2-0 lead in the game. The United States won the tournament by completing the shutout in regulation time. Stroman was chosen the tournament’s Most Valuable Player, and he received the award.

World Baseball Classic: Schedule, scores, highlights, and more
With the United States coming out on top of the 16-team field and winning the 2017 World Baseball Classic, the biggest international baseball competition on the planet was completed in 17 days of excitement. It was Team USA’s first World Baseball Classic triumph, and they had to go through quite a harrowing process to get there. First, they had to overcome the reigning champion Dominican Republic in an elimination game in order to go through the second round. The United States then overcame the previously unbeaten Japan in the quarterfinals before defeating the previously undefeated Puerto Rico in the championship game to claim the title.
Japan, the WBC champion in 2006 and 2009 and a semifinalist in 2013, went unbeaten through the first two rounds of the World Baseball Classic in Tokyo, becoming the first team to reach the semifinals of all four World Baseball Classics.

The first round will be played in a round robin style, with the top two teams from each pool progressing to the second round of competition. The second round consisted of two pools in Tokyo and San Diego, the latter of which was held at Petco Stadium. The second round will again be played in a round robin style, with the top two teams from each pool progressing to the third round of play.

USA, Marcus Stroman Beat Puerto Rico for World Baseball Classic 2017 Title
Jayne Kamin-Oncea is a Getty Images contributor. When starting pitcher Marcus Stroman of the Toronto Blue Jays expressed his wish to represent his mother’s country of Puerto Rico in the World Baseball Classic in 2013, the response was overwhelming. With a United States emblem on his chest during the event’s championship game at Dodger Stadium on Wednesday, he effectively shut down the team’s offense. Stroman pitched into the seventh inning of a no-hitter to lead the United States to an 8-0 victory over previously unbeaten Puerto Rico to win the World Baseball Classic for the first time.
For Puerto Rico, Wednesday’s loss represented the island’s second consecutive runner-up finish at the tournament, following its loss to the Dominican Republic in the championship game the previous year.
However, while Stroman did not completely destroy them with strikeouts (he only had three), he did routinely generate innocuous rollers, which maintained a tendency for American starters, according to ESPN StatsInfo: ESPN StatsInfo may be reached at ESPNStatsInfo.
As part of the World Baseball Classic, the following statements were made: WBC Baseball may be found at WBCBaseball.com.
According to Billy Witz of the New York Times, Ian Kinsler made headlines before the World Baseball Classic by saying, “I hope kids watching the World Baseball Classic can watch the way we play the game and appreciate the way we play the game as opposed to the way Puerto Rico plays or the Dominican plays.” A two-run home drive by Kinsler off Puerto Rico starter Seth Lugo to open the scoring in the third inning was another highlight on the field for the Cardinals.
- Will Brinson of CBS Sports offered some advice to the Detroit Tigers second baseman on how to properly celebrate his achievement: Will Brinson may be reached at WillBrinson.com.
- It’s the old school way of doing things.
- With Stroman dealing, the early run assistance proved to be more than sufficient.
- Ground balls with soft contact are the bread and butter of baseball.” Stroman’s performance, according to Joe Sheehan of Sports Illustrated, was a harbinger of things to come: Joe Sheehan may be reached at joe sheehan.
- Stroman was far more productive than his rival, who lost control of the game in the fifth inning after allowing a single to Kinsler, a walk to Adam Jones, and an RBI single to Christian Yelich to put the game out of reach.
- The Americans blew the game open in the seventh inning when Brandon Crawford singled off J.C.
- After that, they didn’t stop until Giancarlo Stanton batted in McCutchen to make it a 7-0 game.
The Final Score: Chris Emma may be reached at CEmma670.
He’s a rock-solid professional at the plate, and he’s even better with the glove.
With the only question remaining being how long Stroman would keep his no-hitter going, Angel Pagan put a stop to it with a double to lead off the bottom of the seventh inning.
Pat Neshek pitched a shutout eighth inning to set the scene for the remainder of the bullpen, and David Robertson came in to close off the victory in the ninth inning.
MLB The eagle has successfully landed.
According to MLB Network, Yelich talked about his entire experience: MLB Network may be found at MLBNetwork.
But you know what? I’ll tell you something. This is dedicated to those who serve our country in the military.”
Record Finish For World Baseball Classic
The World Baseball Classic attracted a record number of viewers as the United States advanced to the finals for the first time. 3.1 million viewers tuned in to witness the United States-Puerto Rico World Baseball Classic championship on MLB Network, ESPN2 and ESPN Deportes on Wednesday, nearly double the 1.1 million who tuned in to watch the Dominican Republic-Puerto Rico final on MLB Network and ESPN Deportes in 2013.

Team USA advances to World Baseball Classic semifinals
The field for the championship round has been determined. The Kingdom of the Netherlands is a country in Europe. Japan. Puerto Rico is a U.S. territory. The country of the United States of America. Three games will be played to determine who will be crowned World Baseball Classic winners in 2017. The United States were the last team to qualify for the final round of the World Cup when they defeated the reigning champion Dominican Republic 6-3 in a game that was a must-win or go home affair in Pool F.
- Japan is a two-time World Boxing Championship champion.
- Sunday is a travel day for the teams and a day to recover one’s breath for the spectators, after which we will have three consecutive nights of winner-take-all games, similar to what we saw on Saturday night.
- For the United States, the game got off to a shaky start as the Dominicans took advantage of some careless play to take an early 2-0 lead.
- It took three singles for the United States to tie it in the third inning, and then in the fourth inning, Giancarlo Stanton did this:That made it 4-2 in the fourth inning, and the game remained an intense, raucous affair for the rest of the night.
- Once again, words fall short in conveying the magnitude of the situation: Yes, he was robbed by Adam Jones, a fellow Baltimore Orioles great (and native of San Diego).
- Robinson Canóhomered in the very next at-bat, though, to make it a 4-3 game in the process.
- Relief pitchers Sam Dyson and Luke Gregerson were able to close the door on the Dominican Republic’s potent offense, advancing the United States to the second round.
- In spite of the fact that Puerto Rico had already secured their place as Pool F champions, they still had to face Venezuela on Saturday afternoon.
- It was the seventh inning that dealt the biggest blow, as Puerto Rico turned a 5-2 deficit into a 10-2.
- ngel Pagán led the way for Puerto Rico with a 3-for-6 performance, while Mike Aviles went 4-for-5 with a walk and emerging superstarCarlos Correa went 1-for-2 with three walks to complete the scoring.
Carlos González collected one of Venezuela’s five hits, which included a home run. Take advantage of the free day. We’ve got three exhausting days of baseball ahead of us, so brace yourself.
