USA, DR Clinch, Venezuela Pushed to Tiebreaker Game with Italy

Suiting up for Team Mexico for the 2017 installment of the World Baseball Classic, the 34-year-old first baseman batted just.143 and registered only one RBI this time around. The game was ended after eight innings because of the 10-run rule. Mexico was eliminated on a tiebreaker — runs allowed per inning played.

Because three teams - Mexico, Venezuela and Italy - were all tied in Group D with a 1-2 record, the event's tiebreaker for a three-way deat heat states that the tied teams would be ranked based on fewest runs allowed per defensive inning in the games the team played against one another. "But they're not even the Little League World Series". Both posts were later deleted.

Nobody likes getting sent home via tiebreaker, but as he returned to Los Angeles Dodgers spring-training camp Wednesday, Gonzalez made it clear he was still angry about his country's WBC fate.

Tuesday's schedule will see Starling Marte, Gregory Polanco and the Dominican Republic take on Team Puerto Rico at 9:00 PM on MLB Network.

"Looks like some rules makers can not go by their own rules", he wrote. Venezuela took home a 4-3 victory, ending the WBC run for Francisco Cervelli and Italy.

Venezuela then leveled in the top of the sixth inning with Ender Inciarte singling to right field. That was cancelled out in the top of the ninth though by Miguel Cabrera's homer, and Venezuela soon went 4-2 ahead thanks to runs from Rougned Odor and Yangervis Solarte.
