Olympic Baseball Day 4
2008-08-16 08:57
by Bob Timmermann

It was a slightly less contentious day of baseball in Beijing and about all we know is that Cuba and Korea are very likely to move on to the medal round and the last two slots are up for grabs.

The USA was trailing Canada 4-0 after four innings, but the Americans scored twice in the fifth, one of the runs coming on a Brian Barden homer. Barden tied the game on an RBI double in the seventh and Terry Tiffee put the USA ahead for good with a double off of Rheal Cormier in the eighth. Brian Duensing was the winner and Chris Reitsma took the loss in the 5-4 USA win. The USA is 2-2 and Canada is 1-3.

Cuba had just five hits against Taiwan. However, Frederich Cepeda homered in the seventh and Cuba won 1-0 to stay perfect at 4-0. Taiwan fell to 1-3.

China's dramatic win the day before against Taiwan to spill over to their next game against the Netherlands. The Dutch won their first game of the tournament, beating the host Chinese 6-4. The Netherlands is 1-3 and China is 1-2.

Korea scored three runs in the top of the ninth to break a 2-2 tie and held on for a 5-3 win over archrival Japan. Korea is now 3-0 and Japan is 2-2.

Korea and China will finish up their suspended game (0-0 in the sixth) on Sunday while the other teams are off.

Standings: Cuba 4-0, Korea 3-0, USA and Japan 2-2, China 1-2, Taiwan and Canada and Netherlands 1-3.

Rheal Cormier is the greatest pitcher in the history of the Community College of Rhode Island.

Is Cormier a real Cancuck or is he from the Woonsocket corner of Rhode Island which is passed down from Canadian immigrants and thus he claims dual citizenship.
I am glad Canada is losing as I will gain more "Live" Olympics time for other events on TV. CBC shows the best events but if a local team is playing we get that in this border state. Looks like we won't burdened with medal round play for Canada.
