Fighting off elimination after an embarrassment at the hands of Puerto Rico, Team USA is playing the Netherlands tonight. Nederland, however, doesn't seem to be playing back.
J-Roll seems to be doing what Jose Reyes couldn't (again)—leading his team to victory. Reyes' Dominican Republic team was twice beaten by the Dutch, but it looks like USA will survive this test. Rollins is currently 2-3 with a triple and a home run, with four RBI and two runs scored. He also sac'd once and turned a double play to Brian Roberts and Kevin Youkilis. Game's entering the seventh inning.
Updates: J-Roll flew out in the bottom of the seventh. USA still leads 8-1… In the eighth, Shane Vic takes over in center, but Team USA gives up a pair. Thanks a lot, Matt Lindstrom. 8-3 USA… And J-Roll puts the game away, throwing out the last Dutch batter.
