WBC Game Chat: Cuba vs Netherlands, 4 pm PT

Live from Hiram Bithorn! On ESPN Deportes live only.

The Dutch try to stay alive in the WBC, but they will have their hands full with Cuba. Diego Markwell will start for the Dutch while the Cuban starter is still on a "need to know" basis at this time. And I don't need to know apparently.

While Andruw Jones is supposed to be the Dutch star, more people will be interested in seeing Cuba's second baseman Yulieski Gourriel.

If Cuba wins, both Cuba and Puerto Rico move on to the second round next week in San Juan. If the Netherlands wins, then the Friday games will have meaning.

Final score Cuba 11, Netherlands 2

WP -- Ormari Romero
LP -- Diegomar Markwell
Save -- Yadel Marti (his second)

HRs -- Yoandy Garlobo, Osmani Urrutia

Cuba and Puerto Rico clinch spots in the second round. They play each other Friday in San Juan at 4:30 pm PT. The Neterlands will play Panamá at 10 am PT.

This didn't show up on the sidebar, but it's 6-2 Cuba after 6.

So it looks like we are in with a win against the R.S.A.

Cuba up 10-2, so it's looking Friday's games in Pool C will be for cosmetic purposes only.
