Japan 8-3 Israel
Japan and Netherlands advance to LA on Monday as the Tokyo pool is over since they have to travel to LA and the time difference adjustment.
Venezuela 2-4 USA
Ven-For 7 innings their pitching was dominant until the 8th, thats when Hector Randon gave up 2 home runs, one to Adam Jones and the other to Eric Hosmer (2 run shot)
USA- Their pitching was great lead by, Drew Smyly who gave up 1 run and the bullepn (especially Pat Neshak and Sam Dyson) were awesome. The bats did not come alive until the 8th, but they needed this win because, their hardest games are Friday vs Puerto Rico 10pm and Saturday vs Dominican Rep. 10pm
1opm-Venenzuela vs Dominican Rep.
Prediction- 5-2 DR, better offense and against a Venezuela team who played Wednesday will lead to a win, plus, they are coming off a loss, I expect a mad Dominican team.
