In one of the best baseball games I have seen in quite a while, the Netherlands knocks off the heavily favored Dominican team 2-1 in 11 innings. Ã‚Â
If you watched this game, feel free to comment about it. Ã‚Â I will openly admit, I was pulling for the underdog Dutch team. Ã‚Â I, like most, gave the Dutch no shot. Ã‚Â Once Reyes scored in the top half of the 11th, I assumed it was over. Ã‚Â But the Dutch battled back to score 2 in the bottom half of the 11th off of Cubbie Carlos Marmol. If I recall correctly from the other night, Marmol was hesitant to join the Dominican team for fear of losing his role as closer with the Cubs. Ã‚Â This could not have helped his case of keeping that position.
For all of us Reds fans, I guess this means Cueto and Volquez will be reporting to Reds camp a lot sooner than most expected.
