The Dominicans could win their first WBC championship with a victory over Puerto Rico. Not only this but they can finish the tournament in undefeated fashion, something yet to be accomplished. The Dominicans clinched the championship spot with a victory over the Netherlands. Thigh it wasnt easy, the Dominican's bats woke up at the right time.
Carlos Santana got on base and an unsung hero, Moises Sierra, tied the game 1-1. The Dominicans went on to score three more times and that's all they would need. After Edison Volquez settled down, their pitching proved unhittable.
Speaking of unhittable, the Dominicans' bullpen is absolutely on fire. They have yet to surrender a run after the first round of the tournament. Mike Aviles scored the last run on Dominican pitching. Since then, Fernando Rodney has been shooting down stars as the Dominican bullpen has set him up for the saves.
The Puerto Ricans have had an interesting road in the 2013 WBC. They have been beaten by the Dominican Republic twice in the tournament. Then they faced elimination twice, defeating Italy and upsetting the United States.
While speaking of upsets, they defeated the two-time WBC champions, Japan in the first semifinal game to get to the Championship.
On the mound for the Dominicans will be Samuel Deduno while the Puerto Ricans send Giancarlo Alvarado to the hill.
It's winner takes all in the 2013 WBC as a first time tournament champ will be crowned.
