Boxscore

Prior to the game, Didi Gregorius was removed from the Netherlands roster due to a shoulder injury.[9] The Netherlands gained Kenley Jansen, who did not pitch in the previous rounds.[10] Rick van den Hurk started for the Netherlands and Jorge López started for Puerto Rico.[11]

Wladimir Balentien[12] and Carlos Correa both hit two-run home runs in the first inning. T. J. Rivera hit a home run for Puerto Rico in the second inning. The Netherlands tied the score on a run batted in (RBI) double by Shawn Zarraga in the fifth inning. From there, the game remained tied through the 10th inning.[13]

Starting in the 11th inning, teams start each inning with runners on first and second base as a means of sudden death. The Netherlands failed to score in the top of the 11th inning, but Puerto Rico scored the game-winning run in the bottom of the inning.[14]

Boxscore

Japan reached the semifinals with wins in all six games played in the previous rounds.[15] Tanner Roark started for the United States in the semifinal game,[16] while Tomoyuki Sugano started for Japan.[17] Roark pitched four scoreless innings,[18] while Sugano allowed one run in six innings. The United States scored a run on an RBI single by Andrew McCutchen in the fourth inning, and Ryosuke Kikuchi hit a home run for Japan in the sixth inning to tie the game. The United States scored another run in the eighth inning to take the lead, and Luke Gregerson earned the save. Though the Japanese team was considered the strongest defensive team in the WBC, misplays by Kikuchi at second base and Nobuhiro Matsuda at third base led to each of the United States's runs.[19]
