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.
The United States won the tournament by defeating Puerto Rico in the final.
Puerto Rico’s Carlos Correa blasted a solo home run in the first inning of their game against the Netherlands.

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.

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.

With an 8-0 victory against Puerto Rico on Wednesday evening at Dodger Stadium in front of more than 51,000 spectators, the United States captured the 2017 World Baseball Classic championship for the first time. Against a previously unbeaten Puerto Rico team, Marcus Stroman was the star of the show, hurling six no-hit innings until being relieved after allowing a leadoff double.
Late in the game, the United States blew the game wide open, capturing their first World Baseball Classic title.
Listed below is all you need to know about the game:
It was the first WBC crown for the United States
This was one of the few subplots that would have been a talking issue even if Puerto Rico had won the election. This is due to the fact that neither team has won a WBC championship. All of that changed on Wednesday in the United States of America. Before this event, Team USA’s highest finish had been third place in the 2009 edition of the tournament. Early in this World Baseball Classic, it appeared as though the Americans were on their way to yet another poor performance – let us not forget that Colombia’s Jose Quintanacarried a no-hitter into the sixth inning against the United States in their opening game.
The United States would post the same record in the second round, then defeat Japan in the semifinals to win a shot at the title – and we all know how that turned out.
Stroman came up HUGE for Team USA
Want to know one factoid that tells the story of Marcus Stroman’s night? Here it is. Through six innings, he was able to keep the Puerto Rican club out of the hit column. Angel Paganthen hit a two-run double to start the seventh inning, thus ending Stroman’s night before he reached the pitch-count restriction. When it came to keeping the ball down and hence keeping the ball in the park, Stroman performed an outstanding job. He ended the game with 11 groundouts and only one flyout, which was a season high.
Essentially, Stroman more than made up for his shaky start against Puerto Rico last time around, and he did so on the grandest stage possible: the World Cup.
You can’t argue he didn’t earn the right to do so.
Especially in light of Kinsler’s pregame comments about how Americans express enthusiasm in a different, purportedly better way, you have to wonder what he had to say about Stroman yelling at the Puerto Rican dugout at least once throughout the game.
Ian Kinsler let his bat do the talking
That brings us to our next point. Before the game, Ian Kinsler drew attention to himself by making some dubious remarks regarding the way the opponents would be playing that night. Kinsler then began the game by recording an out on the first pitch sent to him by the pitcher. What happens after that? Kinsler’s performance improved as the night progressed. He’d just hit a two-run home run to give the United States the lead. Here’s a closer look at what I mean: Kinsler later added a hard-hit single to his tally while maintaining his usual high level of defense.
Nolan Arenado continued to struggle
The problems of Nolan Arenado, however, have persisted. He came into the game with a 3-for-26 record and a tournament-high nine strikeouts. Things didn’t get much better on Wednesday, unfortunately. Arenado collected a pair of hits late in the game, but he appeared completely disoriented at the plate, swinging through pitches and evidently desperate to produce anything meaningful. And he even had to endure the humiliation of bunting as the cleanup hitter just to have Puerto Rico call him out for throwing out the lead runner.
Arenado is typically regarded as one of the top players in the game of baseball.
But, c’mon, this is ridiculous.
Puerto Ricoâs manager made a mistake
It was rendered immaterial by Stroman’s spectacular performance, but Puerto Rico manager Edwin Rodriguez made a mistake by leaving in a tiredSeth Lugoa for an excessive amount of time in the fifth inning. Long story short, though, the United States added two insurance runs after Matt Snyder covered the nuts and bolts throughout the game. As in the previous game, Stroman appeared capable of keeping a 2-0 advantage intact. The US eventually turned the game into a boat race, but Rodriguez’s unshakeable trust in Lugo was not enough to save the game, at least not on Wednesday night.
Puerto Rico ended tournament with best winning percentage
Apart from generating a hair dye scarcity, there is one thing that Puerto Rico can be proud of: they put up an amazing performance in this competition. Puerto Rico was unbeaten as of Wednesday night’s play. They won both of their first two rounds by a combined score of 3-0, and then edged out the Netherlands in the first semifinal. Puerto Rico’s 7-1 record was shattered by Wednesday’s loss, giving them the greatest winning % in the tournament. On a comparative basis, Japan finished 6-1 while the United States finished 6-2.
Nonetheless, they should be commended for playing as well as a team can play without winning the championship.
USAâs rotation led way
When it comes to the champions, if there is one factor that contributed to their victory, it would be their rotation strategy.
Stroman’s effort brought the tournament’s string of great beginning pitching to a conclusion. Take a look at this statistic:That should enough. Yes, it will suffice.
Jim Leyland dedicated the win to the Armed Forces
Given that this is Jim Leyland’s final game as a manager, you could expect him to dedicate the victory to his friends, family, mentors, or anybody else he chooses. Nope. Consider Leyland’s decision to devote the event to the Armed Forces: Consider this a nice move on the part of Leyland, who cried up while discussing the competition.
Adam Jones says US inspired by Puerto Rico plans
Following the victory, Jones spoke with MLBNetwork’s Greg Amsinger about his feelings: GA: Was there anything spoken before to this game, which was a prelude to the championship? AJ: Do you think I should disclose the truth? GA: Yes, you must be truthful. We’re interested in finding out. AJ: Well, before the game, we received a message stating that some championship jerseys had been produced – we did not produce them – as well as a flight. That didn’t set right with any of us. In addition, there will be a parade.
- As a result, we accomplished what needed to be done.
- More information about the flight/parade may be found here: That is all it takes to get Marcus Stroman to throw like that.
- USA Baseball has had a successful day – and an even better day for the organization as a result of the statements about the Puerto Rican squad that were released.

United States defeats Puerto Rico to win World Baseball Classic
A no-hitter was carried into the seventh inning by Marcus Stroman as the United States beat Puerto Rico, 8-0, to win the World Baseball Classic for the first time. US overcame powerhouses Dominican Republic, then undefeated Japanese and Puerto Rican teams in three consecutive winner-take-all games to claim their first world championship. For a long time, the main question surrounding Marcus Stroman was whether or not his attempt to become the World Baseball Classic’s second ever no-hitter would make it through the 95-pitch limit.
- That brought his night to a close with 6.0 IP, 1 H, 0 R/ER, 1 BB, and 3 K.
- It was a very outstanding performance.
- In fact, both of his singles sparked comebacks from two outs!
- On the other hand, unlike Tuesday’s quarterfinal, it was a gorgeous night for baseball.
- Lugo was the first to fall apart when he allowed Ian Kinsler of the Tigers to hit a two-run home drive (who, aftercontroversial commentswere released earlier in the day, was stone-faced around the bases).
- In the top of the seventh inning, the United States put the game out of reach.
- Marcus Stroman, on the other hand, was definitely the protagonist of the narrative.
He had dominated the previous week.
That was the lone baserunner Stroman surrendered in his six innings of work.
It was unquestionably his night.
Whatever the case, Sam Dyson, Pat Neshek, and David Robertson were able to finish out the game, ensuring the United States’ long-awaited finals triumph.
Despite the fact that it took place during what is typically the most boring month of baseball in the year, this edition broke attendance records, established colored hair records, and provided us with what just possibly be one of the most memorable photos of the 2017 season.
Most disappointing is that we’ll have to wait four years until the next one takes place. There are just 1447 days left. Let us take a moment to appreciate what we have just had the privilege of witnessing. The United States of America has emerged as our new champion.

WBC scores: Puerto Rico upsets Dominican Republic
A 3-1 victory against the Dominican Republic lifted Puerto Rico into the second round of the World Baseball Classic on Tuesday in San Diego. Both teams were participating in a four-team round robin, and this was their first game. Puerto Rico won the game because to strong pitching from their starting pitchers. The Dominican Republic suffered its first setback in the World Baseball Classic in eight years, after having won its previous 11 games in the competition. This was the first time since 2006 that Puerto Rico has defeated the Dominican Republic in a competitive match.
The Dominican side scored a run in the second inning on a solo home run by Nelson Cruz.
During his last two seasons with the Seattle Mariners, he blasted 87 home runs, which was the highest in all of Major League Baseball during that time period. Chris Davis of the Baltimore Orioles, who has 85 hits in two seasons, is second only to Cruz in the majors.
Cuba fell to Netherlands
Cuba was defeated 14-1 by the Netherlands in the second round of the World Baseball Classic on Wednesday in Tokyo, Japan. The game began at 11 p.m. ET, several hours after Cuba had already suffered a defeat to Japan earlier in the day.
Japan beat Cuba, 8-5, in Pool E.
The Japanese team, which is competing in Tokyo, used a three-run eighth inning to pull ahead of Cuba and take a commanding 2-0 lead in second-round group play. That strong inning was capped off by a two-run home run by Tetsuto Yamada, who hit his second home run of the tournament. Yoshitomo Tsutsugoh and Yuki Yamada combined for six hits and five RBI in front of a home crowd on Saturday. The Japanese improved to 2-0 in the four-team pool, which consists of them, Cuba, Israel, and the Netherlands and is played in a round robin format.
The top two finishers in Pools E and F proceed to the final round, which is a straightforward and single-elimination competition that takes place on Sunday.
After that, they’ll play in the final game at the same location the following day.

Winners and Losers of the 2017 World Baseball Classic
To navigate around Robert Hanashiro-USA TODAY Sports, use your arrow keys.
While the United States took home the championship, many in the 2017 World Baseball Classic came out of the tournament for better or worse.
Wednesday night marked the conclusion of the 2017 World Baseball Classic, which had been an emotional roller coaster journey of highs and lows. Even after the United States defeated Puerto Rico in the title game to bring the tournament to a close, the World Baseball Classic’s influence continues to be felt by a number of players. While many players attended the World Baseball Classic with the hope of bringing their country to greatness, a significant number of players entered the event with a point to prove.
Others, including as Eric Gagne and Vladimir Balentien, took advantage of the WBC to jumpstart their major league comebacks.
Players who choose to participate in the World Baseball Classic are aware of the possibility of injury, and Didi Gregorius made an early return to the New York Yankees for this precise reason.
With that stated, here are a handful of the WBC’s winners and losers from the first day of competition. To navigate, use the arrows on your keyboard.
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.”
Baseball Diplomacy: World Baseball Classic 2017
The Meridian Center for Cultural Diplomacy, with sponsorship from the United States Embassy in Tokyo, is creating an exhibition about baseball diplomacy between the United States and Japan, which will open in June. Baseball is perhaps the most popular sport in Japan, and the island country is home to the largest professional baseball league outside of the Major League Baseball (MLB) in the United States, the Nippon Professional Baseball League. While the FIFA World Cup continues to be the most watched sporting event on the planet, and professional basketball continues to enjoy widespread popularity around the world, baseball, dubbed “America’s pastime,” has been left in the dust when it comes to international recognition, according to the International Olympic Committee.
- The World Boxing Championship (WBC) is regarded as a non-event by the majority of sports fans in the United States, owing to its lack of domestic appeal and low television ratings.
- The United States, the Dominican Republic, and Japan were among the teams who competed in this year’s competition, which was won by the Dominican Republic in 2013 and won by Japan twice previously.
- The Dominican Republic beat Puerto Rico 3-0 in their first meeting.
- Because of the World Baseball Classic’s lax regulations regarding player eligibility to represent their countries on national teams, the Classic makes for a fascinating case study in global citizenship.
- The Israeli National Baseball Team, who entered the event rated 41st in the world, defeated the 2013 winners, South Korea, as well as the fourth-place finishers from the previous year, the Netherlands.
- Many of those American players, on the other hand, were members of the Israeli national team.
- The sole requirement for participation in the Classic is that contestants be eligible to become citizens of the country that they would be representing in the competition.

These regulations have helped more than only the Israeli squad, as previously stated.
Besides competing for Team USA in 2006, Johnny Damon, the former Red Sox and Yankees outfielder, also participated for Team Thailand in 2012, when his mother, who is a Thai citizen, qualified him to do so.

The United States and Japan, two countries with a long history of historical links and a shared passion of baseball, have a long history of cultural exchange that has used baseball as a method to bridge cultural barriers between the two countries.
