Voltron gave up three runs to Nederlands today, which was enough for the loss in this gigantic, enormous, huge, massive upset in the first round of the World Baseball Classic. In the first inning alone, he threw 29 pitches. You only get 70 in this round.
Baby Red Alexander Smit did not fare very well, either, as he only pitched to three batters, giving up a sac fly, a single, and an intentional walk.
Havoc was caught stealing after getting a hit.
Team Dominicana is the overwhelming favorite to win the whole thing. Nederlands only needs to win one more game to advance to the second round. Upsets are fun! Woooo Nederlands!
Unfortunately, it was sooooooooooooooooooo beautiful today I missed the game. I'm sorry I did. Right now I have USA vs. Canada on inside, but I can't bear to go in to watch it except every now and then. Votto has had a monster day so far, getting a single and hitting a massive homer. Thom thinks he's going to have an incredible year. I'm inclined to agree.
