HEADLINES

Return trip: Japan, Netherlands semis-bound

Don't get the idea that Japan and the Netherlands are the same as the teams that lost to Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic, respectively, in the WBC 2013 semifinals at San Francisco's AT&T Park. They're not. They're better.


For Israel to get this far, Dayenu

Those hoping Team Israel's World Baseball Classic run would last at least one more day were disappointed by the outcome of Wednesday's game against Japan, a 8-3 loss that ended Israel's ride.


Japan stays undefeated, off to semifinals

Japan completed an undefeated run through the first two rounds of the World Baseball Classic with an 8-3 win over Israel on Wednesday, sending the two-time champions back to the semifinals for the fourth consecutive tournament.

Many pitchers -- even while working their usual role -- have had a tough time slowing down Japan. Josh Zeid, who is normally a bullpen arm for Team Israel, was able to do it as a starter.
