Herrera on cloud nine after heroics for Colombia

Dilson Herrera's eyes grew wide when asked about his recent experience at the World Baseball Classic qualifier in Panama, where his solo home run in the eighth inning of his final game clinched Colombia's berth in the 2017 event.


Herrera hero as Colombia set for '17 Classic

Colombia second baseman Dilson Herrera was hopping down the first-base line as he gazed high into the Panama City sky. The small, white dot of a baseball hung in stark contrast to the pitch-black atmosphere overhead as it soared down the third-base line. At last, a few seconds later, it landed on a dirt hill beyond the fence, just inside the foul pole.


Panama looking for revenge, bid to WBC finals

They say revenge is a dish best served cold, but Panama is hoping to cook up some retribution on what figures to be another hot and humid night Sunday at Rod Carew Stadium. A big crowd is anticipated as the host country will square off with its neighbor, Colombia, in the World Baseball Classic qualifier championship with a bid to the 2017 WBC finals up for grabs.


Panama rallies past France to put final on tap

Team France was close to serving up some disappointing deja vu to Panama on Saturday night. But the French pitching staff had trouble finding the strike zone in key moments, and a crucial error helped Panama respond to a three-run deficit to claim a 7-4 victory on the third day of the World Baseball Classic qualifier.
