WBC Game Chat: Australia vs. Dominican Republic, 4 pm PT
2006-03-10 15:00
by Bob Timmermann

Live from Lake Buena Vista, Florida!

Pool D finishes play with a matchup between its champ and the team that has performed the worst in the tournament.

The Dominican Republic has slugged a tournament-high seven home runs (although no other extra base hits) in winning its first two games easily: 11-5 over the Dominican Republic and 8-3 over Italy.

Meanwhile Australia has yet to tally a run in 16 innings of play, losing a 7-inning game to Italy 10-0 and getting shut out by Venezuela 2-0 Thursday. The Australian hitters are just 2 for 48 in the WBC.

Vladimir Guerrero was first reported yesterday as rejoining the D.R. team today, but Guerrero has said that he won't play.

The D.R. starters should be either Daniel Cabrera or Francisco Liriano with Damian Moss starting for Australia. The Dominican Republic will be playing in the San Juan Regional starting Sunday against either Puerto Rico or Cuba.
