The World Baseball Classic utilizes the same rule as Little League- if a team is ahead by 10 or more runs the game is stopped after 7 innings. This is what happened to Team USA Saturday in Miami with final score of 11-1. Ouch!
Ivan "Pudge" Rodriguez continued his great WBC play by going 3 for 4. The Giants denied rumors that they are interested in signing Pudge to be their 1st baseman. Travis Ishikawa is the clear front-runner for the job, as he homered Saturday in Scottsdale in a loss to the A's.
