WBC Game Chat:Italy vs Dominican Republic, 10 am PT
2006-03-09 09:00
by Bob Timmermann

Live from Lake Buena Vista, Florida On ESPN Deportes live and ESPN2 at 11 pm PT.

In what looks to be the last roundup for Italy, Tony Fiore hopes that he will fare better against the powerful bats of the Dominican Republic, who battered around the likes of Johan Santana and Carlos Zambrano of Venezuela on Tuesday. Odalis Perez will start for the D.R. squad.

With a win, the D.R. advances to the second round in San Juan and can play the JV squad Friday against Australia. If Italy can pull off a miracle worthy of canonization, then they have to hope that Venezuela gives up a bunch of runs to Australia later in the day, which would be a bigger miracle.

Soriano and Tejada out for D.R. today and Polanco and Reyes starting at 2B and SS.

If Tejada doesn't play, does that break his consecutive games streak?

Maybe Manny Acta will get him a token appearance before the mercy rule kicks in.

Ooh, some bad fielding by Mark Saccommano to give D.R. a 2-1 lead.

Did I ever tell you about my friend Bob Saccamano?

I don't think he really exists.

He does. He went in to the hospital for a routine hernia operation and now he's just sitting around in a chair by the window going "my name is Bob".

Odalis Perez said he wanted to be a national hero for the D.R.

I don't think he is right now.

Pujols makes it 4-3 D.R. with a DEEP fly against Fiore.

"Last roundup for Italy?"

Is Sergio Leone the manager of the Italian team?
