stupid rule kicks in with 11th inning, with runners on 1st and 2nd to start the innings
When was the last time there was a 9.5 at dodger stadium ?
certainly not last season.
Javy is a human highlight reel
Wow! Never heard of this until I read your post yisman and sure enough it just happened in the Holland/PR game.
so the strategy is to bunt the two placed runners over, which Holland did in the top 11th. Then of course the other team intentionally walks the next guy to load the bases with one out. But they then hit into a double play.
Bottom 11 PR bunts the two runners over, receives an international walk and again bases loaded one out but they got the sac fly to win.
That is the least damage that could be done in this format but you are right it could have been a scorefest if Holland had a clutch hit or two and the PR side then has to score more than one. Funny they start this in the 11th, not the first extra inning the 10th? Anyway, thanks for the info and then I got to see it play out.
I'm rooting for Puerto Rico even if USA beats Japan.
USA/JAPAN GAME 0-0 in the 4th. Tempted to take the in game revised total over 4.5. Even if it remains a pitchers duel, the 11th inning could force the over.
While debating with myself a run scored in the top of the 4th. Before start of the bottom took over 5.5 +120 small bet for fun.
USA RICO THOUGHTS?
USA small favorite
PR FOR THE MAX
