  • Adam Jones robs Major League Baseball teammate of solo homerun in WBC

"If you didn't know they were teammates before that game, you know it now", Showalter said. It showed us what's great about the tournament and why it deserves more of the countries attention.

The Dominican Republic, the defending WBC champion after winning all eight of its games in 2013, took a 2-0 lead in the first inning Saturday but could not hold on. However, the trail of fate changed for Team USA with some batting power by Ian Kinsler and Giancarlo Stanton.With some much-needed run support, Team USA would now lead 4-2 heading into the seventh inning.

Team USA plans to start Nats pitcher Tanner Roark on Tuesday, and has Marcus Stroman lined up if it gets to the final on Wednesday. Robinson Cano's ensuing solo home run didn't change the direction of the contest, and the USA went on to win 6-3.

A two-run double from Andrew McCutchen (Pittsburgh Pirates) ended the scoring. Team USA has now punched their ticket to the final four of the WBC and will take on Japan in the semi-finals. Nonetheless, this game is important both teams, since it's an elimination game. With three games still to be played in the Championship Round, total attendance for the tournament will surpass 1 million for the first time. The Dominican Republics Manny Machado crushed a pitch to right-center field and center fielder Adam Jones jumped up over the wall to rob his Orioles teammate of a home run. It was a great moment.

"The 2017 World Baseball Classic has drawn 976,828 setting the all-time event attendance record through the Second Round", read the league's Monday morning statement. Machado admired his blast from home plate, convinced, perhaps along with most of the sellout crowd at Petco Park, that it was gone, as his Orioles teammate Adam Jones gave chase.

Having been robbed of a home run, Machado actually seemed less surprised than anyone by Jones' catch. "We're representing the entire United States, and that right there is pretty special".
