Posted March 16, 2017

Miguel Cabrera hit a solo homer and Rougned Odor had a long run-scoring single during a three-run ninth inning and Venezuela rallied to beat Italy, 4-3, on Monday night in Guadalajara to qualify for the second round of the World Baseball Classic. In a Pool F matchup taking place at Petco Park in San Diego, the US (2-1 in the first round of pool play) will face Venezuela (2-2).

Puerto Rico, which went 3-0 to win Venezuela's first-round pool, and the defending champion Dominican Republic are the other teams in Pool F. Two will advance to the single-elimination semifinals at Dodger Stadium next week. Venezuela will play Italy in a one-game tiebreaker Monday night, with the victor advancing to the second round.

Gregorius doubled in a run in the third inning when the Netherlands scored four runs to take a 6-0 lead.
