The World Baseball Classic is all set up and ready to go for playoffs with the Diamond Mind baseball game. It will be a best of three semi-final featuring the top four teams of the opening round.

The first series will see the United States take on Venezuela . The second series will see Cuba take on the Dominican Republic. Should be fun. Check under Other Games > Diamond Mind to see the boxscores and the results.

Strat-o-matic Baseball World Baseball Classic

usaflag cuba2

I am running two baseball World Classic tournaments. One with Diamond Mind (see other games on the menu) and one with Strat-o-matic (see Baseball tab) . This is from Strat-o-matic and the USA opens the tournament with a big win over Cuba.  

In a close game the UNITED STATES USA got by the CUBA CUBA by the score of 3 to 1. UNITED STATES had the game winning rally in the 9th inning scoring 2 runs. After an out was recorded, Daniel Murphy got things going when he drew a walk.  Paul Goldschmidt got his turn next, but he was a strikeout victim. Nolan Arenado then cracked a two-run shot.  Neither team was able to score until the 7th inning.  The victory went to Nate Jones(1-0) who went 1/3 of an inning, allowing no runs. Sam Dyson preserved the game for Jones, recording his his 1st save. Jose Fernandez(0-1) was the loser.  He gave up just 3 runs and 4 hits in 9 innings.
