The Netherlands Eliminates Cuba From WBC
by

On Monday, The Netherlands defeated Cuba 7-6 in Tokyo on a 9th inning sacrifice fly by Kalian Sams to advance to the semi-finals of the World Baseball Classic. The Netherlands will face two-time WBC Champion Japan at AT & T Park next Sunday. The winner will face the United States, Puerto Rico, Italy or the Dominican Republic in the WBC Final. 

It was the second time The Netherlands had beat Cuba in the tournament. They also bested Cuba twice at the 2011 Baseball World Cup in Panama. 

Still, it is a significant achievement given that Cuba has been a baseball powerhouse for decades while the Dutch are only beginning to emerge as an international player.

I would love it if The Netherlands and Italy were to face off in the WBC Final. No one would have seen that one coming.
