Trea Turner has been on just a bit of a roll this tourney

Game tied in the 2nd. Kelley is given the hook after giving up a tater and loading the bases with one out.

USA coughs up the lead in the bottom of the second. Now 2-1 Japan.

Trout goes fishin’ on a changeup,


IDK about you all, and I may regret pointing this out, but Trout has historically struggled against the Astros, with the result that I have never been as immediately impressed with him as his career suggests I should be, and I’m a little disappointed not to have seen anything this WBC to alter that impression.

Is Tucker hurt? Surprised he’s not in the lineup. Hasn’t he had a pretty good WBC?

Given the trouble with the strike zone that preceded the pitch, I’m not sure that Schwarber going after the 3-0 pitch was a great idea. But I guess if you think it’s going to be a cripple…

Just got under a middle of the plate fastball.

I’ve been wondering about Tucker as well.

So that’s great.

No mention of discomfort, so he’s got that going for him.

What is Nootbaar’s connection to Japan?

His mom was born there.
