I will let you know when I get back there I cant really tell the feeling even on facebook. But the roster is different and I guess some of the players here in the states didnt play for Japan this time. They are considered some of Japans best. I am familiar with some of the players but I followed the Central League not really the Pacific League.

Yadier Molina did very well for Puerto Rico though. He is the key of defeating USA and Japan to be this far

SAN FRANCISCO —

The Dominican Republic (8-0) has its World Baseball Classic crown, at last.

Edwin Encarnacion hit a two-run double in the first inning that held up, and the Dominicans capped a dominant, unbeaten run through the WBC with a 3-0 win against Puerto Rico for the championship Tuesday night.

Cano earned MVP honors, Erick Aybar added an RBI double to back winner Samuel Deduno, and the demonstrative Dominican righty threw his arms into the air in delight after watching a run-saving defensive gem by center fielder Alejandro De Aza in a tough fifth.

Some 50,000 more supporters gathered to watch on televisions inside and outside of Estadio Quisqueya in the Dominican capital city.

After Fernando Rodney struck out Luis Figueroa to end it, the Dominicans rushed the mound—each player waving his own flag.
Quote:
No matter their team, Caribbeans had so much to cheer in the championship of a tournament missing the star-studded American team yet again. The U.S. failed to reach the final for the third time in as many WBCs.

Deduno followed up a fine outing in a win against the Americans last Thursday with another strong performance that will send him back to the Minnesota Twins with some nice momentum.

Deduno struck out five in five scoreless innings, allowing two hits and walking three to finish with a 0.69 ERA for the tournament. And Rodney struck out two and finished for his seventh save as the bullpen closed out this special run with 25 2-3 scoreless innings. The relievers didn't allow a run after the fourth inning of their first-round victory against Puerto Rico on March 10 in San Juan.

Cano finished his sensational Classic batting .469 (15 for 32) with two home runs, six RBIs, six runs scored and two doubles. The 15 hits are a WBC record. He also earned MVP honors in each of the first two rounds.

Encarnacion finished with six WBC RBIs.

After drawing a pair of intentional walks a night earlier, Cano had another in the first inning against loser Giancarlo Alvarado.

The Puerto Rican right-hander surrendered Encarnacion's double two pitches later, and was done after one shaky inning featuring 22 pitches and only 10 strikes.

Hiram Burgos relieved and struck out five in 4 2-3 innings.

MLB Commissioner Bud Selig was among those to attend the game—available on television to 440 million households worldwide in 200 countries and territories, and in 15 languages—that drew 35,703 fans on a cool, drizzly March night at AT&T Park.
