6pm- USA vs Colombia Marlins Park (MLB Net.)
USA- Once again alot of pressure is on them, their roster is loaded with Buster Posey, Paul Goldschmidt, Eric Hosmer and Giancarlo Stanton leading the offense, their pitching is lead by ace Chris Archer,expect Andrew Miller and Tyler Clippard to be the late inning guys.The key here is to get to the Colombia bullpen early, Quintana will probably pitch 3 or 4 innings, if they can get an early lead they will have no issues.
Colombia-They have a few names that are known in pitchers Jose Quintana and Julio Teheran, they will need a very young offense to help out, but, they are just not at the top level.
Prediction-USA takes a few innings to get going but, once they do they win easily.
Score- 7-0 USA
9pm-Venezuela vs Puerto Rico Estadio Charros de Jalisco (MLB Net.)
Venezuela-Do not count them out, they have some good players in Felix Hernandez, Jhoulys Chacin, and hitters Salvador Perez, Miguel Caberera and Victor Martinez
Puerto Rico-They are coming off winning the Serie Del Caribe back in early February, and they have a good roster lead by Seth Lugo and Jose Berrios on the mound and hitters Yadlier Molina, Kennys Vargas, Carlos Beltran, Kike Hernandez and Angel Pagan
Prediction-I expect a close game between 2 teams that know each other well in the end Venezuela wins a close game
Score- 4-3 Venezuela
