On the WBC Semi-Finals & Another Opening Day Mets Legacy - The First Batter, The First Out

It was a fun ride for The Kingdom of the Netherlands, but alas, The Dominicans were too much this time for the Dutch, who ousted DR in the 1st round of 2009. The game was tight for a while, but the Dutch could never respond offensively after grabbing a 1st inning run without the benefit of a hit. After the Dominicans scored 4 runs in the middle innings, it only felt like a matter of time before the bullpen would lock it down.

And Tony Peña made quite the last minute move putting Toronto Blue Jays farmhand Moises Sierra into left field.

Now, they take on a Puerto Rican team who seems determined as ever, with that guy named Yadier, and an Angel Pagan who apparently needed to leave the Mets to become a Champion-caliber player who keeps making iconic catches in San Francisco's Center Field.

They also caught a Japanese team who suddenly lost their overly-preached fundamentals at a crucial part of the game.

A Caribbean Championship game is set up.

Tonight at 8PM EST in San Francisco, MLB Network will broadcast the final game of the 2013 World Baseball Classic: a single-elimination game that will crown either The Dominican Republic or Puerto Rico baseball champions of the World.

These games have not disappointed, and I don't see tonight's win-or-go-home game being any different.

Tune in all.
