1 game left in round robin

With one game left there are two huge games on the ledger that have playoff implications. You have to figure the United States will beat Canada. That leaves the winner of the Puerto Rico vs Cuba matchup as the deciding factor in POOL 1.  In pool 2, Japan lost a key game to Mexico. It now sets up a winner take all situation between Japan and the Dominican Republic. This nice thing is that Japan thought they would beat Mexico so they have both their #1 and #2 starters fresh and ready to go in this matchup. The winner of this game will most likely meet the United States in the crossover playoff game. Mexico is the only team who does not have a shot at making the playoffs.
