It is up to Danny Duffy to save America, as Team USA now faces elimination with a loss to the Dominicans. Puerto Rico defeated America last night 6-5, advancing to the semifinals, leaving one spot left in Pool F for the winner of tonight’s game. Duffy was excellent against Team Canada last week, but will face a much tougher challenge tonight against a lineup that will feature Manny Machado, Robinson Cano, and Nelson Cruz.

Hopefully Eric Hosmer will be extremely prepared as we know he is one of the game’s biggest winners.
The game will air on MLB Network and stream on MLB TV.
